Beautiful! Normally I'd go TAS/Comics but if I had to choose... It'd be Nolan! I was truly memorized on how well casted the Nolan Films were! I will always remember The Dark Knight as The Dark, Gritty Batman that we deserve... Not The Neon Lighted Batman & Robin! The Art is well done and I wish that I could eventually draw like that (I'd like to write a Comic someday...)
Thank you so much!! Yeah the Dark Knight movies have such great legitimate casts. Nolan did such a great job turing comics into realism. I'll always love the Burton movies as well because that's what I grew up with. Overall I would say I prefer the Dark Knight Trilogy over the first 2 Burton movies.
I can see that. i like both of them too but something about Keaton's eyes. And Keaton's Batman rarely spoke. For me the weak point of the Nolan films was where he always made Bale's Batman give these long corny monologues.
Fantastic job on this picture! I love the level of details, and how incredibly well you nail the characters from the movies. Incredible. ^^
So, as for the VS thingie here... while I think both Nolan and Burton takes a few too many liberties with the source material - Burton stays closer to a proper Batman than Nolan does. Don't get me wrong though - I have no problems with changes. Just that when you change something, I believe the change should be an improvement. And I think Burton does that better than Nolan. Nolan also tries too hard to be pretentious and dialogue-heavy with his movies, while Burton just wants us to have fun with his movies and take us on a fantastic visual ride - while also connecting to us emotionally.
I still hope for the perfect live action Batman movies - but to me, Burton wins. Especially since neither of his Batman movies where bad, while Nolan's third movie was just beyond stupid to me. XP
Tom Hardy acted very well in the movie and made a pretty cool character, but he sounded really silly with his Sean Connery-like Darth Vader swallowing a cat, and the plot twist at the climax and his death ruined so much. Not to mention, his motivations for doing what he does are dumb. XP I honestly think The Dark Knight Rises is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. A movie combining The Dark Knight Returns and No Man's Land and Knightfall has no rights being THIS shitty.
I had problems with it too. Even small things like why can't Nolan just call her Catwoman? God forbid he goes a little comic book and calls her Catwoman.
The stupid retirement too. Horrible idea. Batman retired in "The Dark Knight Returns" because he was old as hell,broken down,had the death of Jason Todd and the dissolution of the Justice League after the government outlawed heroes basically. In "Rises" he retired because some cops thought he killed one guy! Wow. Terrible idea.
Also,no mention of the Joker at all? The Joker is the biggest and baddest villain Batman has an they act like he didnt exist.
I've made two reviews of the movie. One right after I saw it in theaters, and I was a bit nicer to it: [link] And then a second review after watching the movie a third time: [link] Stating new things and saying it might be one of the worst movies I have ever seen. I bring up a lot of your points as well. Though, of course you don't have to read it all. Just felt like sharing.
People can love it all they want, that's fine. But oh my god... it has some serious problems with it.
Don't suppose you could add in Joel Schumacher's Batman characters and make it a Triple Threat match? I reckon, based on the reviews those movies got, everyone would want to see them get ripped to shreds by the other two Batman characters...
Anyway, thoughts aside, this has all the makings of a great battle, although personally, I'd be leaning towards Nolan's side to take out the victory. Bane being so clever and smart, not to mention incredibly strong, while the other characters are more or less the same, would probably wipe the floor with the other side.
I wouldn't know for sure, since I never really caught onto the Batman movies, but I've certainly heard and seen how much of a bad-ass Bane was.
You've captured both sides extremely well, and drew a great comparison between Nolan's and Burton's visions of Batman. Great work, and hope to see more!
Thank you so much!! I thought about adding Schumacher's characters as well...hell, even characters from the 1966 Batman TV series, but I basically narrowed it down because it would have taken so long. I would love to incorporate them, mainly because the color and styles are all so different between all 4 franchises. Eventually I will develop something with those 2 series as well, perhaps adding to this comparison as well.
