Re: The Official Batman (1989) Thread - Part 3
It's not about a the name in the title... it's about a director doing something different with a 50 year old character. If people can accept something as mythology bending as the ending of The Dark Knight Rises, they should be capable of accepting Returns.
I never felt like cheering for Batman in The Dark Knight Returns... but Miller's mutated version of this character is no less valid in my eyes.
Everyone is entitled to not like it, but people like Jett (hate that guy!!) are wrong to dismiss it.
Whether people like it or not it is part of Batman's 75 year history.
Tell me you don't like it, fine... but don't tell me it's not a valid Batman movie.
