It was Pfeiffer-FAN who said something to the effect of it would have been great to get a proper sequel that built on the first Batman in the Returns thread. Pfeiffer-FAN is right. We didn't get gangsters and a nightmarish villain from the 70's and 80's comic books. We got Tim Burton creations all throughout a film that supposedly starred Batman from the 89 film.

The reason why some fans come down on Batman 89 so hard since the Nolan films have been released is 2 fold: the Nolan films are newer and fans of the actual books don't read the 70's and 80's source material that the 89 film was based upon to understand how much more pure the 89 film is compared to the modern crime-drama trilogy that Nolan created.
