    It’s Jack Snyder’s now. Nolan left to make Batman 3 perfect.

    How did Nolan fuck up Batman?

    He ignored canon. He ignored characterization. The plots lacked flow or reason.

For that matter… the characters lacked any real motivation. The characters were acted stiff and lifeless.

So to be fair, in order for you to say that Nolan had “fucked up Batman”, it has to be the collective opinion of the people as well. To be honest, I felt that Nolan did a terrific job at Batman.

    He just needs to grow his hair out and coif it right.

    Wow. It’s just a movie.

    I wonder why every single person here that happened to like Burton’s era of Batman films over Nolan’s has been downvoted.

    I’m still waiting for a Batman Bin Suparman movie.
