Default Re: Choose Your Batman 2.0

I don't think there is anything especially American about Batman. The knightly/aristocratic/vampiric/Sherlock Holmes influences on his premise are much more European.

The character is de facto American, but I don't think the nationality of the actor should be considered at all.
