I read that a lot of fans are happy the Nolan era of films is over as it wasn't a true representation of the character/'s and they can't wait for the new era to begin. I was talking about this with my friend the other day in which he asked "why can't people just be happy with what they have at the moment, because you never know what the next era of film will bring". I agreed with him entirely. I mean people moan about the Burton films. I personally love them. Yeah batman killed (which he did early in the comics), and they had Joker be Bruce's parent’s killer (this created good tension between hero and villain). Penguin is a freakish monster man. Doesn't mean their bad films though. They were good for the time and have an element of fantasy to them.
Then we got the Schumacher films, which destroyed the franchise. Now we've just finished the Nolan films and people come out the wood work because its not super faithful to the source material, and too realistic. Bane isn't Bane from the comics, Bales voice sucks. I think people moaned more about Bane not being super big and not on venom than people did about Joker not having bleached white skin and permanent green hair. The Nolan films are good films. Just because they aren’t 100% true to the comics and they change the characters a bit, doesn't make them bad films.
We should all as Batman fans be happy that we got such a talented director and writer that brought the franchise back from the death and made it into a billion dollar film franchise. I'm not saying myself that i haven’t been picky about some bits of every film, but i can live with it. I can honestly say that i don't think there will ever be a true representation of the characters on screen that will please everyone. So instead of bashing everything and moaning, let's all be happy as Batman fans that we have some good Batman films to admire and watch and look at them as achievements of what has happened before.
