Re: The Official Batman (1989) Thread - Part 4
I'll go as far to say that with all the HYPE! and merchandising done, this IS STILL the biggest superhero/comic book movie EVER! It has yet to be beaten as far as impact is concerned. It immediately spawned: Flash the TV series, Darkman, Dick Tracy and others.
Basically what has happened in American comics is people have been trying to write their own versions of Dark Knight and Watchmen for the past 20 years.
The point that comics are at now is nothing compared to where they once were. And it'll never get back there either. - Kurosawa
