Default Re: Batman as a Vehicle for the Surveillance State

Batman could have bat themed ornithopter drones or fixed wing drones (or both).

Maybe in a Kingdom Come movie where all the characters are extreme/fully-realized versions of themselves but not in Batman/Superman or a World's Finest movie.

Before Batman is driven to extremes to lock down Gotham completely he's just a lone renegade crusading for justice in a corrupt wasteland.

He's the idealistic rebel who later becomes a hardened dictator. People need to see the full evolution from the beginning, which means hints of draconian/Orwellian beliefs rather than a full display of them.
This Batman has been confirmed to be middle aged and well into his career under the mask.
