more on "The Batman"
anyway, since I don't think "The Dark Knight" is any kind of awesome I could never be taken seriously as a Bat-fan these days. at least the sheen has worn off that movie a bit now. but that's another rant for some other time, if ever.
"The Batman" really is growing on me, for the most part. I really like this Bruce, despite him looking like he's about 16. and Alfred is always great, in every incarnation. the different cops that believe in him are a nice touch as well.
however, the thing that's hit and miss with me is the look of many of the villains. I like Penguin and Catwoman, but the Joker is off in a bad way, and the Riddler looks silly and lacks the sense of fun in the earlier incarnations. Mr. Freeze is a decent redesign, and making him completely bad with none of the pathos is a good idea.
but it's a lot better than I gave it credit for.
