I never really saw anything in Batman(1989) that I really liked, I might have to watch it again, and of course Batman Begins didn't really circle around ONE enemy, Scarecrow wasn't a pivotal part of the story in Begins really.

So, I guess they're starting the Batman timeline over, this time with a different director?

Killer Kyle;3552005So, I guess they're starting the Batman timeline over, this time with a different director?

They, kinda, already did, with the first one. That's why it was called 'Batman Begins', instead of 'Oh No, For The Love of God No, Not Batman Again!'. Although that last one is pretty catchy...

And I think it's a good thing. The last few movies completely destroyed that particular Batman timeline to the point that it'll never be taken seriously ever again. Starting over with a clean slate was the only way for the caped crusader to get any kind of respect back on the big screen, I think.

Comparing Nolan's work to that of Burton is wrong, I think, because the movies are of a deliberately different style and each has merits. Burton's Batman was deliberately gothic and the city was a character in itself, and the villains (and the hero) were pretty camp if we're honest - almost as homage to the TV series. Nolan's Batman is much more realistic, dark, and gritty, and aside from a few details here and there it is truer to the Batman comics of old (or so I'm told, anyway). Both are good for different reasons, though I prefer the style of Nolan's Batman to be honest. As for the other Batman movies, the less said about them, the better.

I'm looking forward to it, anyway, though as per usual I won't make any assumptions 'till I see the thing. Sequels have a bad history of going pear-shaped, even when based on the best of films. I seriously doubt anybody will top Jack Nicholson's Joker, but we'll just have to see...

That's what I meant by "starting over." Since they're making this sequel to "Batman Begins," "Batman Begins" becomes the restart point of the Batman storyline.

It would be nice to see two different styles of the Batman storyline (Burton's version and Nolan's version).

Ah, I see what you mean. I think WB have officially closed-off the previous timeline, so, this one is where it's at now. I don't see any parallel timelines developing, unless they start off another one. A move for the best, I think.

(Burton's version and Nolan's version).

Woah, dont think about blaming Burton for the crap that was Batman and Robin and Batman Forever chief. Burton only did Batman and Batman Returns...the only qausi-good ones of that whole mess.

As said earlier I guess it is hard to compare Burton's films with Nolan's Begins. They are two different beasts altogether. Burton's films were pretty dark (actually I dont think Begins is all that dark) but they still held that comic book feel...something that I dont really think works for Batman movies (despite the fact that it IS a comic book ya know?)

I like the more realistic Batman...it gives the whole series new life.

He wasn't blaming him for the latter movies, or at least I don't think so.

I really ain't in the whole realistic ballgame, if I want realistic I can look out my window and look across the street, a Movie Theatre, a sidewalk, a tree and an office.... how realistic.

I however am at my optimal level on Realistic intake, also.. whats up with Batmans voice? it just kind of sounds... funny, he sounds like he is really really trying hard to scare you... but just, not.
