Oh wait, they did. And somehow people didn't boycott the movies for a lack of spandex. Weird, right?
I've never claimed Nolan's Batman movies weren't successful. They appeal to both a nostalgia for Burton's iconic dark Batman films with the black rubber suits, etc., and for those familiar with the comics, they also appeal to nostalgia for iconic classic comics Batman: Year One, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Batman: Knightfall, etc. I feel that the black and grey Batman look, like the iconic Batman: The Animated Series, which many people also grew up with, could be pulled off in live-action if given the chance, and that doesn't mean I want a return to Adam West's blue and grey Batman look, and also that doesn't mean I want Batman without any bullet resistant protection.

Half-man, half-bat.

You've convinced me. Well played, sir. It's great to debate with someone who has the hard facts to back up what they say
