    Really...
    I knew Miller modelled his "Dark Knight Returns" Wayne on Brando. Eastwood.. interesting. It would jive with some of Bill Sienkewicz' (sp?) rendition of the Dark Knight.

    How about the Ventriloquist, the Mad Hatter, Clayface or Harley Quin?

    The perfect nemesis would be either Superman or Grendel.

    This article does a pretty good rundown of the best and worst Batman villains. Clayface is a possibility. But just as Superman must have Lex Luthor, eventually Batman must have the Joker.

    Saw the movie with my son last night. I really enjoyed it.
    REally well designed. The clothes were great except that they did not fit all that well. Collars on shirts were too big. A & S suits looked sloppy also.
    Maybe I should bring this up in the clothing section.

    That Katie Holmes was really dull.
    Gary oldman was sharp as usual.
    Michael Caine can still pull it off. How long canhe stand unassistited? Hs is not young.
    Bale was an exceelnt batman.

    Saw it on Friday night and loved it. There were some problems with it but I've been waiting for a Batman movie like this since I was a kid.

    And damnit, I said in 1999 after I saw American Psycho that Christian Bale needed to play Batman. I am pleased to have been proven right.

    Now we need to make The Dark Knight Returns with Tom Selleck.

    I read in more than one article that they did not option the rights to Year One and that this movie is explicitly NOT based on it. Which is the main reason why I have not seen it. Why, oh, why would they not use that perfectly paced and brilliant story? The fools. Bureaucratic fools. They don't know what they've got there.

    You probably still want Dirk Richter to play him, too. I keep telling you, he's 73 years old and he's DEAD. Saw it tonight, really liked it although it definitely showed a side of the Batman mythos I had no acquaintance with. Not too keen on the Batmobile but it seemed to work with the rest of the film. I thought Bale was well cast, and the absence of Vincent Price as Egghead or Art Carney as the Archer (or Tallulah Bankhead.....) was surmountable. Kept an eye on the suits after Carl's comment. They _do_ have the Andersons shoulder... Seemed OK to me although shoulder line wasn't too clean on a few of them. I take it we mean the suits worn by Ducard (Neeson) and Wayne? I liked the way the hacking button flap was cut on the coat Ducard wears when Wayne makes it up to the League of Shadows HQ.

    Most of the clothes looked great. It is just when I see something wrong in a movie, then my eye is drawn to it.

    There was one see where the shoulder on Bales's suit had a huge ripple across the top.
    Many of the shirts looked as if they had been made with Shrinkage allowance that had not been washed out.
