Here's hoping the new actor, and the whole reboot as a whole, can reach the heights of The Dark Knight Trilogy.
It's sad Bale's Batman turned out the way it did. It had so much more potential. Bale is one of the best living actors, he could give us a perfect comic book Batman if that's what the project called for, but he was mis-directed. Nolan's heart wasn't in the comics enough to give us comic book Batman.
