Bane takes out an entire trading floor?
I got a dvd. I also watch it knowing there's a campy feel to it.
I like Tim Burtons Batman films and I feel the same way about it as I did back then and rank it just below TDK for the best Batman films. I don't find it campy at all either unlike Schumachers versions.
My list of favorite to least favorite Batman films:
1. The Dark Knight - A rare occurance where the sequel actually betters the first installments' story.
2. Batman Begins - First saw this with some hesitation, but after first viewing, opinion quickly did a 180.
3. Batman (1989) - I watched this on VHS non-stop as a kid. A really dark film. And loved Jack as the Joker.
3. Batman Returns - They hype behind this film was ridiculously high. Good installment, but more "campy" compared to Batman by Burton. Also, I remember having all the action toys from McDonald's as a child.
4. Batman Forever - Val did a good job as Bruce/Batman. Jim Carrey was not awful as Riddler. But overall feel of movie was corny.
5. Batman (1966) - I only saw this decades after its release. THE definition of camp. Shark repellent!?!
6. Batman And Robin - I'd like to think this movie never existed.
I don't understand how people can praise the Nolan films like the second coming while trashing the first two Batman movies (this is coming from someone whose fav is Begins btw). Yes, the former is grittier, darker, more realistic, etc. But ultimately, these are movies based on a comic book about a guy who dresses up as a bat. Come on.
I like the original, but you don't find Joker pulling a giant revolver out of his pants campy in the least?
who else was considered for banes role?
Can't wait to see it.
Surprised they haven't turned up the jets on viral stuff yet. I have feeling it will be a full court press on marketing after The Avengers is released
I'm not sure they will (at least not on the level Dark Knight had), the audience for this is already there and it's coming out relatively unchallenged on July 20th.
re: batman forever- and nicole kidman was hot in that movie.
re: batman and robin - 'tis imo something that never existed in the franchise, like how disney makes straight-to-dvd sequels for little mermaid, lion king, etc... also like how godfather 3 never existed in my world.
I think it's worth mentioning that the Batman franchise didn't 'mature' into its current form until DC Comics -- following Marvel's and Image's leads -- changed their classic characters to be grittier. I mean, compare Spiderman from the 1970's to its modern form. Batman, Superman, etc. were no different.
I personally prefer the Tim Burton Batman films. Nicholson was the best Joker and, as Neo said, it's hard to take a movie seriously about a guy who fights crime as a bat and has airplanes and cars styled as such. If Batman hadn't passed so far into pop culture, Batman Begins and The Dark Knight would look absolutely ridiculous (and to me they still do at times, but that may be because of Christian Bale).
Funny you should say that, because Trailer #3 is attached to The Avengers.
Smart move by WB.
TDK trailer was shown during Iron-Mans opening too. It's nothing new.
