I'm in team Burton (that has a nice ring to it)
but The Dark Knight is a real good film.

Chris Nolan ruined Bane and the Joker

Bane isn't a leader, he's no revolutionary, he's a behemoth who simply wants the fame of being the man who broke the bat

and Heath Ledger's Joker was far too serious, he should have been laughing wildly throughout his plans and they should have been comedy based, Ledger's Joker was a simple terrorist in clown make up, nothing like the true Joker

Umm, No. Quite the opposite actually.

He didn't ruin Bane, In fact he's pretty much the first one to get the characters combination of strength and intelligence right, If anything, the DCAU, Arkham Games and especially Batman & Robin ruined Bane by turning him into a boring musclehead with a luchador fixation.

Ledger's Joker is the closest rendition of the character we've had in live-action yet.

By that logic, Burton "ruined" Penguin and Catwoman since there vastly more different from there comic book counterparts than Bane and the Joker were.

how was Penguinn and Catwoman more different than Bane

Bane is a 10 foot tall 800lbs roid head who is also extremely intelligent, he doesn't have followers, he doesn't need followers and he doesn't plan revolutions

Nolan's Bane is a terrorist in a funky mask who calls himself Bane

Are you serious? The Penguin supposed to be a civilized criminal mastermind, not a disgusting, perverted mutant scumbag, Catwoman is a sane, level-headed cat-burgular not a mental-case who was brought back from the dead by cats licking her.

Those two are way more different from the comics than Nolan's version of Bane was.

It may be obvious with my Avatar and all, but in my opinion, The Dark Knight trilogy works so much better as movies than the Burton ones do.

No sorry, usually I mix Tim Burton Batman with other variations of Batman. It's true, a lot of the artwork is the Hot Toys figure.

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 feel that Michael Keaton's interpretation of Batman was better because he was naturally intimidating. Christian Bale's, while good, seemed as if he was trying a little too hard.

But I like both versions. :)

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! :D 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

Whats this BS about Burton giving us a "Proper Batman"? He turned Batman into a two-dimensional Punisher Clone who wasn't even the main charatcter of his own movies

The Nolan movies actually focused on Batman and gave him actual character development. also helps that there Commissioner Gordon had both a personality and a relevant role in the story unlike Burtons.

The third Nolan film had serious issues but Bane was a good addition. Tom Hardy was great.

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.

 "sounded really silly"

Check out the TAS version of the character.

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.

Talia Al Ghul taking the lamest revenge ever.

The film has issues you are correct.
