Kilmer's smile was just goofy as hell in BF. Whereas with another actor, it might not be as bad.

And Batman smiled and laughed his frickin head off in TKJ. That was fine by me

I think the next trilogy should be like the Arkham Asylum/City series.

I would love an entirely CGI Batman movie.

The idea that Batman doesn't smile is absolutely ridiculous.

It looks very odd though on film, imo.

It just looks stupid. I prefer Bruce to do the smiling when in his playboy role or with Alfred, and leave the Batman dark and brooding. He should be in character when he's Batman, focused. Bale let out his rage with it quite a bit. I like that. Batman shouldn't have happy moments, it distracts from the mission and seems silly. Which just reminds you of the campy lighter stuff.

I personally think all super hero movies should be rated R

Id like to eventually see a Batman movie like that. But it would be a selfish adult request...to ask for all of them with an R Rating LOL. That immediately cuts out all children, which isn't fair at all.

Some things look better in art / animation than in real life. A smiling Batman is one of those things.

I always thought this was kind of a selfish attitude. If I was 8 and wasn't allowed to see Batman and Spider-Man movies because they were rated R...I'd be hella pissed!

Now, I wouldn't be opposed to an R rated Batman movie (perhaps based on Grant Morrison's Arkham Asylum) happening one day down the line, but no way every superhero movie should be rated R.

As for the reboot....I voted A & B, but I'd love to be surprised with an option that we're not even considering.

Honestly, I've love to see Batman Beyond the movie. Nolan cited Blade Runner as an influence for Batman Begins, but if you set the film a few decades into the future you can really get the Blade Runner version of Batman. It would be a cool way to push the franchise more into Sci-Fi without getting too campy or blatantly unrealistic. And I also think, after the ending of TDKR the world would be ready to see a Batman film where Bruce Wayne isn't in the cape and cowl. But it could be just like the show where he is the mentor.

Not to mention, the movie could also have flashbacks to Batman's heyday ala Return of the Joker. Could be pretty epic.

Yes, because Kilmer looked odd it looks stupid. And lighter stuff is, of course, BAD when it comes to Batman. You guys...

I don't mind Batman smiling or even laughing. BUT KILMER!

Seriously, as far as Batman cinematic actors:
Bale > Keaton > West > Clooney > Kilmer

This would be amazing. It's one thing that they can pull off once the Justice League/Bat-Reboot universe is over. Mr. Freeze would be a fantastic choice for a Batman Beyond villain or it could be a different way to bring Joker back to the big screen.

Lmao that Keaton smile under the cowl makes him look like a perverted Batman.

Imo, it doesn't matter who plays Bruce Wayne/Batman; the look of someone smiling in that Batsuit in a live action film just looks off to me. It's fine in a cartoon because they will of course have some light-heatedness to it, but with Batman: TAS, it also worked. Again, in a live-action film, it doesn't, imo.

It depends what you mean by lighthearted. Grant Morrison's Batman run is lighthearted, zany and entirely wacky.

But the main villain was a man who was evil for the sake of being evil. His entire cause was the perversion and corruption of virtue. He intended to disfigure Bruce, mentally and physically, to live as a slave of the Black Glove, after drugging him for five days, fracturing Bruce's psyche and torturing Alfred. leave Dick a vegetable, entombed in his own body, tortured by the memories of his formerly spectacular life. Damian would be corrupted after his valiant efforts at redemption. While the Wayne's would be remembered as drug addled swingers and Thomas was a wife beater and Martha cheated with Alfred. Joker dug up a corpse and danced with it, and disfigured his own face. And Pyg, don't get started with Pyg.

Having a light hearted Bat-Family and tone just makes the villains all the more horrifying.

If you say so. Yes there is no way someone in a batsuit can smile and it doesn't look odd. No way!
