Default Re: How close should a comic book movie be to its source material?

IMO, it depends on the audience.
Fans of the comic: Extremely close to the source material
Film Critics: As far as possible from the source material
General Audience: It doesn't really matter

Saying that I'm a huge Batman fan (Comics first, movies second) and I found Nolan's portrayal quite far from the source material yet I loved his trilogy, so I have just completely contradicted myself.
