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.
Jerry and Joe were gentlemen. Bob Kane was a thief and a glory-hound who was more concerned about profit and prestige. I cannot bring myself to believe the same things about Stan Lee in regards to his two main contributors, Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko. I'm inclined to believe Stan's version of events as he has usually been very willing to credit his co-conspirators, but the truth is because different versions of credit exists, we will never truly know.
