": Tim Burton doesn't read comics, and yet he made Batman, and Batman returns?
yep.. and that's why he missed the point of the character when he made those movies.
Batman WAS a great movie.. I love it, and I've seen it many times.
It was not Batman.. I guess it was a "re-imagining" of the character.
It's become such a part of the mythos, tho', that no-one remembers laughing their ass off in the scene where Keaton has to look up in the suit and has to lean back like a limbo dancer. The costume was ludicrous, or so we all thought then.
I guess, finally, I have the answer to the question of how he screwed it up that bad.
And I, like many others, rejoiced when I found out he wasn't going to do Superman. *WHEW* Dodged a bullet there...
