Sorry but I feel very strongly about the previous "Batman" movies - they were good? They raped the bat! They were kiddish, stupid, ugly, words desert me! The entire psyche of being the Bat, of the Bat itself, if it has ever been truly shown on reel, then it has to be the Nolan movies! And solely the Nolan movies themselves!
Daniel Ocean as the bat? Sh11111tee - give me a big f-ing break! And what the hell was that black thing on 4 wheels that they were driving in the first 3 movies? What is that supposed to signify - the size of his manhood? Bloody hell!!
No offense meant to anyone!
The early comics of Batman had him do a lot family-friendly stuff, lot of cockiness in them, Joel Schumacher was probably inspired by those comics. The later comics gave him that serious tone, which Nolan made the trilogy out of. I don't like any Batman movies except the ones Nolan made, but there are people who actually like Schumacher's movies, nothing wrong with that
