Default Re: Should the new Batman movies go fantastical?

It's true there has been fantastic characters and plots along Batman's story, I'm not gonna deny it, but, in the base, they're dispensable in the path of Bruce Wayne.

They do nothing to really further Bruce's evolution. They're always there as a villain of the week (the monsters, the robotic villains), or some experimental cross-over where Batman has a chance to fight aliens or gods. The latter is usually an enemy to another Justice League member.

"Lets make one thing very clear here - Nolan's films are as faithful an adaptation as there is. It pays homage to its source material, remains true to its characters and above all else places the story first and foremost." - jmc
