In Nolan I Trust!


It has been said by many that Tim Burton's Batman is better than Nolan's.

On these occassions, I claim that Tim Burton's has very little in common with what the comics.

I wish to prove that Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy is closer to the comics than Tim Burton's.

This includes villians, characters, and the stories.

I'll take this challenge. While both directors never used a comic for reference personally, they produced pretty successful movies. However, Burton's batman and characters were far more true to the comics.

1. Tim Burton's Batman (Tim's Batman) is a stone-cold killer, taking pleasure in the act.
2. Tim's Joker killed the Waynes.
3. Tim's Bruce isn't a playboy.


Meanwhile, Nolan's Batman (Chris' Batman):

1. Is strongly against killing.
2. Chris' Joker is anarchy incarnate.
3. Chris' Wayne is a playboy.

This will start the debate. Go ahead and bring up other comparisons if you want.
