Stop BatNostalgia by MexPirateRed Stop BatNostalgia by MexPirateRed
How many reviews and haters of the new or old Batman we see?
Many, all of them based on nostalgia or invalid points of view.
Batman has changed with the years and for the needs of the medium.
There is no defenitive Batman and even comic book Batman is not what people say he is.
Batman is not perfect, he fails and he cant do everything, he is a human that decide to fight evilness.
Also any person that know anything about Batman, knows this "Mythology" changes with time and medium.
Arkham Give to you a Joker that was a Godzilla type creature, still i dont see people going ballistic about this, because it made sense in this medium and in this mythology.
New Version, New Medium, New Mythology.
Batman movies, tv shows and cartoon are to be viewed as a GRAPHIC NOVEL and do not have to fit into the continuity of the Batman Comics.
Batman humanity made him popular.
Please end this.
:iconlordhadrian::iconsaysplz:I never realized people fought over a "proper" Batman. Each one is unique, each one contributes to the legend
Adam West: To me, it's an interesting idea because Batman – the character, the legend, the extension of it over all these years – it lends itself to different machinations, layers, different time zones – anything. You could really pretty much mold Batman. He's malleable, welcome and always interesting. They [Christopher Nolan] do The Dark Knight, and I did The Bright Knight. Ours was fun for the whole family.
Adam West on Nolan: Yes! Absolutely. I'm a fan of anything that's good, especially when it's conscientiously good.
He was Batman and is not living in the past, he understand Batman and loves him, if you dont understand this, you love, Burton, Nolan or whatever, not Batman, so stop calling yourself Batman Fans

To be honest George Clooney isnt a great actor and just because he is a "liberal icon" people overrates him.
His work isnt special at all.

Great Point of View. An interpretation of the character doesn't invalidate the others. It's just different.

Nolan and ONeill are the best example.
Mike W. Barr try to set old ideas from the comics into the more modern and urban style of Batman.
ONeill said he did his comic books as reallistic as the characters and the medium let him.
Years later, Nolan decide to take them as his main example and people goes nuts, he keep the Temple Origin from ONeill and the killing Ras in a bizarre way from W. Barr.
He introduce into his reallistic modern style the Lazarus Pit and the Golden Age Batman being with Catwoman ending.
In 75 years there has being many intepretation, sure Nolan Batman isnt like Grant Morrison or Frank Miller.
But isnt less Batman, i could complaint of the Burton chessy ideas, but all of those ideas came of the golden age comic books.
Schumacher decide to bring the early silver age goofyness and campyness, heck the Adam West show was more mature that the comics books.
75 years, nobody knows how many writers since he has be in tv, movies, theater, radio, video games and etc...
All of those intepretations of one character, there isnt just one Batman.

You must be a great fan of Batman, Really?. You know a lot. Again, I agree with you.

No, i have just met a bunch of great Batman fans and read a bunch of great blogs about the character, to be honst i have read less of 20 years of the character history.
But that dont change i have read his best comic books and the most important ones.

I like most of the batmen. My favorite is the Injustice batman because he fights on par with Superman and Wonder Woman, two who can BLOW UP A PLANET. And he crushed the other superman's regime and set Earth 1 up as a democracy. So, yeah, Injustice Batman is my favorite batman, but not the best batman.

Great juxtaposition of the Batman/Bruce Wayne aspects of the actors who played him.  Really good list!

All that's missing are 

Lewis G. Wilson from the 1943 serial "Batman", 

Robert Lowery from the 1949 serial "Batman and Robin", 


George Turvey from the 2011 play "Batman Live"
