As good as Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight franchise was, Batman fans still had a lot of things to complain about. Next year’s Batman v Superman movie might prove to be an significant upgrade.
So what was wrong with The Dark Knight? Where do we even begin…
First of all, Batman looked a little bit too much like Robocop with that silly muscle padded suit. You generally won’t find that look in the Comics and you certainly won’t find it in any of the animated adaptations.
Then there was the fighting choreography. The scenes were badly filmed, you couldn’t make out any discernible martial arts moves and for some reason they didn’t want to hire a bad-ass trained martial artist as a stunt double.
Since we don’t want this piece running into tomorrow, we’ll jump straight to what was wrong with the Batmobile, or the Tumbler as they called it. The Batmobile is supposed to be a car first of all. A very cool, very aggressive and futuristic looking car, not a military off-roader..or whatever that was.
This newer adaptation from the upcoming Batman v Superman film is a lot more car-like, wouldn’t you say? Sure, it still looks a bit too Army-like and seems like it would be really hard to drive because it’s so wide, but at least it’s a car. It has four wheels, not 40.
That being said, we’re beyond excited to see it on the big screen, along with Zach Snyder’s take on how the Dark Knight should be. Even though Nolan has a great cinematic mind, Snyder should prove more capable at this on-screen superhero thing. The way in which he directed Watchmen was nothing short of a masterpiece.
