Default Re: Your top 5 things that needs to be "fixed" for the Batman reboot

Asking the Batman films to be like the comics is impossible, even ignoring the differences between the two mediums. Batman isn't a book like Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter, where there is one story, by a single author, with a specific tone. Batman is a series of different stories by different writers and artists over a 70+ year period, with drastically different tones depending on the time period. The comics of the early 40s, early 60s, and early 90s couldn't be more different from each other. The Adam West Batman was very accurate for the time, just like Nolan's Batman is accurate to the Batman of Year One, The Long Halloween, and Dark Victory.

The fanbase will never be happy because there is no single fanbase. The different versions of Batman are as different as the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches.

Anybody able to unite the fanbase would find their skills better put to use dealing with North and South Korea.
