Default Re: What did Christopher Nolan think of the other Batman movies?

Keaton had some bronze age elements too BTW but there was a whole lot of golden age there too. With Kilmer I saw more bronze age in his Batman than anything else. Especially with the head butting with Dick Grayson something that B&R expanded on further which is a bronze age influence on that movie too.
I think Michael Keaton's Batman is a hybrid of the earliest Golden Age Batman and Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns.

Btw, heres an example from top of my head from the 70s. Batman was pretty much like Bale is in Nolan's movies since the 70s. This is from 1971's Brave and the Bold #93

Fan of Christopher Nolan's Batman!
