I've heard that Sam Hamm had a different vision for the Batman '89 movie and that he couldn't get through with it because of all the people that were working on the movie then. Well I say to those people "congrats, you've done a great job". If this guy were to go all the way with it those movies wouldn't have got the cult following they did. I feel like he suffers from a severe case of white guilt more

A showdown in Burnside leaves both Batman and the Gotham borough reeling. As the community rallies together behind Harvey Dent, can Bruce find a way forward for both Batman and the city?

I haven't read the original 89 script, I just said that based by this, I'm glad Sam Hamm was kept in check by Burton and everyone else. If this is any indication of that, it must have been awful. Don't know what bandwagon you're ranting about.

Merlyn - Oct 14, 2021

But I can see you're obsessed with this since you're commenting on every issue here how this is superior to Burton's version. No, it's not.

Pattinson definitely isn't very masculine, there's a reason he was so popular in those vampires movie, men are not the target audience for those types of movies. But I've learned to look beyond that, for example Curran Walters seemed very feminine to me and he's been very good as Red Hood in the shitty Titans show. And Pattinson is talented so I'm rooting for him to make a great job.

-The Kingpin tease is unnesacary and could instead just be the beginning of the sequel.

Yeaaah....You can definetly see that Johns had 5 volumes planned, and rushed the hell out of the third. The last few pages are so hilariously terrible, seriously. Should've just focuesed on making a cohesive third chapter, not...whatever the hell that was.

How was it wasted? I thought what they did with Jessica was brilliant and a sick twist. And the ending is teasing the future if there was ever more, he’s hoping to see people get more excited for another one, which he succeed I look forward to what he’s going to do with Joker.

Batman: Reptilian #1 is trash.

The only saving grace is the fantastic art

Batman is horribly mischaracterised, he is exactly what you'd imagine Ennis' Batman to be.

Ennis uses this book as a way to deconstruct Batman even though he doesn't understand the character so it just comes off as flat. Instead of a deconstruction of a masked vigilante's psyche he deconstru more

However I am glad to see that Matt Reeves is going in the direction of showing Bruce as a good person. He even said that his version of Batman is a humanist.
