Both Batmen would probably win in both situations.



The Keaton Batman would probably destroy the TDK Joker. He was never duped in his films, he was always ahead of his enemies. He probably wouldn't even listen to the **** TDK Joker was spewing. I really can't imagine what TDK Joker could throw his way in terms of speeches to make him squirm. That he's a freak just like him? Nothing the Keaton Batman has never heard before. Imagine the interrogation scene, he probably wouldn't even discuss anything with him and beat him to death.

Would Keaton Batman kill him though? Who knows. He didn't have homicidal tendencies until the third act of 1989 when he finds out who killed his parents. So unless the TDK Joker killed his parents, he might very well leave him for the cops.



Bale Batman would obliterate '89 Joker. The Joker might poison a good bit of Gothamites and Bruce might ***** to Alfred a bit about it, but he'd eventually find a way to also counter act the Joker's scheme with Fox's help.

Then one on one? The Joker would be a dead man. The '89 Joker would be a colorful smear against the wall. He's a mob guy, what damage is he going to do against a ninja (albeit a slow, sluggish ninja)? He'd probably send in Bob the Goon and his black Ray Charles "Bane" thug to give Bale Batman the works.




Either way Batman wins. Batman always wins.







Now Batman vs. Batman? I dunno. They pretty much have the same gear, the same equipment. Their fighting styles are a bit different but they're both shown to be competent against thugs and hired help. They both have atleast three vehicles. Same gadgets. They're also able to eat bullets because of their armor.

Only advantage Bale might have is that he can turn his head with the TDK suit. Then again, he does have that ridiculously huge, impractical cape where as the Keaton Batman's goes down just past his shins.



Why would they even fight each other?

I think he wouldn't say a word, and just do that lazy eyed, creepy smile thing he does when Napier says "Nice outfit".

Then the Heath Joker would either be as gleeful as he was with Bale's Batman... Or just ****ing confused.

Anyone else wonder what a Snyder Batman might be like? I think it'd probably be pretty awesome.

Snyder is a very "straight off the page" and "I will take this and put it on the big screen" type of guy. In other words, Snyder's Batman would be the most straight-off-the-page portrayal we would get in live-action so far.

then again, Snyder's Superman is the farthest from the comics it's been on screen.

Also, Ozymandias's costume was quite different than the comic costume.

I imagine Batman would have no trunks either at least.

I don't think we should make that assumption about Snyder's Superman until we see the movie. Heck, we barely know anything about Snyder's Superman due to WB's piss poor marketing of the film.

The only difference is the red leotard is gone. That's it. And I absolutely believe, 100% that that was something WB said had to be that way, NOT Snyder because he said he fought and fought about that and saw no reason for it. Snyder has our backs with CBMs, IMO.

Dude, for all of the flaws Watchmen had, I think all of the costumes and the look of the film, sans Ozymandias, are pretty spot on and you couldn't have gotten a better director for it.

I'd hope he'd do black and gray at least. I'd be okay if it looked something like this:



Anyway, Zack Snyder FTW!!

It certainly won't be that way with Man of Steel, though.

Different S chest logo
Added wrist/waist guards
No S on the cape
darker colours

The Donner Superman is much closer to the comics than Snyder's. (not that I mind. I'm just saying).

I agree. But Ozymandias's costume change shows that he's not above changing costumes.

Par for the course, sans maybe the wrist & waist pieces.

It was the closest they could get at the time, I agree.

True, but I'll say he's the least likely to of all the CBM directors probably.

Technically, MOS is not Snyder's Superman but Nolan's/Goyer's Superman. Nolan and Goyer were the ones who worked on the story and the script and finished both before Snyder was even signed on as the director.

That's true. How much say or creative control does he have on it though I wonder....? Maybe it's just a perfect mesh.

It IS the perfect mesh. You have Nolan and Goyer for great storytelling, Goyer and Snyder for staying faithful to the source material, and Snyder for fights and special effects .

Still, characters that aren't one off in graphic novels is a bigger game, and that's my point. Even if Snyder wrote the script, it wouldn't feel like a movie is taking the pages right out of comics as even Nolan didn't do that unless it was real important moments such as the Gordon, Dent, Batman confrontation on the roof.

That does sound about perfect! I get what you mean bro, and I think it's awesome! I am not sure how much more excited I could be for MOS!!

I'm not big on Snyder's taste, considering what he gave us with Sucker Punch.

I know, he wrote that story himself.

But directors are the ones who are supposed to know if they need a new script (even if they wrote the first ones themselves), if the actors nailed the scene, etc etc. They are the last word; they are the ones who say "this works, or this doesn't".

He also directed the Owls of Ga'Hoole.

That being said, MOS looks like it 'could' be the best superhero movie ever. The trailers are tonally amazing.

Question: are we voting on the Batman character or the story? If it is only the Batman character, I would vote for Burton. Keaton's version of Batman is better for a number of reasons: cooler costume, cooler Batmobile, much better voice, and better investigative skills. If it's the story, I would vote for Nolan because he did justice to Gordon for the first time in movie history and I felt the overall plot of BB/TDK/TDKR was better than B89/BR.

Yeah, Oldman's Jim Gordon did rather kick the butt of Pat Hingle's. I still like the latter, though, partly because he played his part well in the Axis Chemicals scene, which remains the best sequence in any Batman movie in my opinion.

I like that scene a lot, but I'm not sure I like it more than Descent Into Mystery or the very last scene of the film.

It got lost in the shuffle unfortunately. Didn't make as much at the box office as it deserved, but then again there was a X-Men film that suffered a similar fate recently. But BB has received a pretty good audience through home video and TV broadcasts.

I just want to say that this video, once and for all, sums up just about ALL of my thoughts on the whole "Nolan VS Burton" thing.

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:


God, I love the Nostalgia Critic.

Only thing he maybe doesn't touch on is the batmobile (and batplane ) and score (but to be fair he does touch on that in another video about the greatest movie soundtracks of all time), which I also prefer from the Keaton film.
