Well...batman in live action don't usually scare me at all. I know batman is suppose to be so dark and scary in the comics, but when did you ever see a batman that is frightening?


By looks alone please. Not by the action he did to any thug or etc.
 
The only Batman I found somewhat scary was the hallucination Jonathan Crane had. And maybe the Arkham Asylum Batman? Hmm... Nah.
 
"DarK", "scary"...

these words really annoy me.

Batman is not some uber-dark material. It's quite kid friendly.

I know...which is why I don't know how can batman look dark or scary to criminals...

of course, the fictional characters in batman's fictional world can and should be scared by Batman (that's the reason for the costume) but if you are scared by a man in a batsuit... well... :oldrazz:
 
My heart raced whenever he rose his voice in TAS -- something that the live-action Batman don't have an edge over.
 
Batman is only suppose to appear frightening to the wrong-doers of Gotham. He's not and has never really appeared scary to US, the audience, but to the criminals of Gotham City. I'd say he succeeded at that quite well in both Batman '89 and Batman Begins.
 
he was scary in '89. but that's more because keaton himself is scary.
 
LOL, yeah keaton just naturally looks pshycotic and there were moments where he did look very creepy. bale never sreally scared me, not even when he was looked at in fear gas mode. forget about the other 2. but keaton looked freaky to me right after napier says "nice outfit", then cuts to keaton giving jack a creepy grin...then he disapears. *shivers* . i like how burton made batman non-superficially creepy. he just...was. didnt even have to try.
 
What about when Batman is yelling at Flass in Begins? I would **** my pants if a guy in a batsuit yelling at me...

It's because the actions batman did rather than his looks alone.

If a guy without a batsuit did that to you, I think you will be frightened as well.
 
In the early 80's there was a comic where Batman turned into a vampire and actually killed a punk robbing a store, that was pretty scary.
 
Agreed. Keaton as Batman comes natural to him. He can be psychotic without lifting a finger--which as should be, because Batman is supposed to need some professional help.

Exactly the reason why Batman is not THAT kid-friendly.

Wrong.

Exactly the reason why Batman is not THAT kid-friendly.

of course it is. I started reading batman when i was 4 (okay, my mother read it ;) ). And that is the way it should be. If you come to Batman with 16, well, something's wrong :woot:
 
So... Batman can scare older people but not little kids? :/

Lol, Batman does need counseling, man. His parents was shot to death right in front of him when he was 8 years old, and all he ever did was come home from the movies with his family. He had to carry the burden of revenge alone, and if it werent for Alfred, he wouldve gone berserk before he reached puberty.
 



nuff said.

Mh. In fact it takes a lot of naivety to buy that the Batman image is so absolutely selective. All kids immediatelly seeing Bruce Wayne behind the mask? I dunno, talks crap about the costume function's efficiency.

And then no one can see Superman behind Clark's classes. It works in comics I guess.
