Otherwise we're going to end up with a long, pretty movie that under the shiny plastic surface is cold and dull.
So basically the second movie will be just like the last one?

My apologies to all of you out there who keep candlelit shrines to the guy in your closets.
I thought Ledger was fantastic as the Joker and I don't give a crap that he died. Yes his death made people pay more attention to it than they would have otherwise, but I think that, even if he'd have lived, most would still say that it was the best villian ever played in a comic book adaptation.

Both were completely different interpretations of the Batman genre as were the versions of Joker. Under Burton with Keaton & Nicholson they tried to walk the line between campy and dark. Almost a nod to the television series with Adam west, yet still trying to capture the darker side of the dark knight.

Schumacher was basically pure glamour and visually cartoonlike. I really didn't care for either of his versions.

Nolan went completely dark in a much more gritty adaptation that featured more believable villians. I believe it appealed more to the people in my own age range than any of the others.

I really don't care for Bale and hate the way he changes his voice when he puts on the mask, but I don't care to see them recast the film for fear of it following the same fate of Schumachers films.

The ending was true to the spirit of Batman. I disagree re: convolution of plot, especially when you compare it to Watchmen.

Maggie Gyllenhaal's looks are irrelevant to the actual film. Ledger's joker was gritty and realistic within the context of the universe. Sorry you don't agree, because it was really quite good.
Agreed
