I saw someone post this dream cast-list once and have to share:

Quote:
Batman - Gary Cooper
The Joker - Marlon Brando
Catwoman - Ava Gardner
Two-Face - Robert Mitchum
The Riddler - Charlie Chaplin
The Penguin - Charles Laughton
Poison Ivy - Veronica Lake
The Scarecrow - Charles Boyer
Mr. Freeze - Yul Brynner
Commissioner Gordon - Jimmy Cagney
Lucius Fox - Sidney Poitier
Vicki Vale - Rita Hayworth
I'd put Orson Welles as The Penguin and don't see Brando's Joker, but either way, that's fucking awesome.

I love that they laugh while the Penguin is electrocuted. So much for that "don't kill others" moral code.

Which do you all think is better, Year One, Dark Knight Returns, or The Long Halloween?

They're all good, but Dark Knight Returns, no contest.

I'd agree that DKR is the best overall. From a fun and entertainment side of things, sometimes I think I prefer Long Halloween though.

Let's also not forget the powerfully moving Brokebat Mountain, where the above pic is from.

My favorite Batman leading lady was Nicole Kidman.

I'm not sure why people say Batman Returns is a bad Batman film. Just as Miller's Batman has some differences with Loeb's, and Morrison's differs from Kane's, so does Tim Burton's. The only reason people seem to have a problem with the changes Burton made is because he did it on the screen. Batman Returns IS a Batman movie, and probably one of the best we'll ever see.

She's tied with Kim Basinger for 2nd place. Then Uma from Batman 4. I couldn't care less about all the rest.

I think it's fairly clear that Michelle Pfieffer's Catwoman is the most dynamic and interesting female character to appear in any Batman film thus far. Kim Basinger (Bay-singer, Bass-inger?) looked hot and screamed, Uma Thurman camped it up Julie Newmar-style, and both Rachels were mildly interesting. None hold a candle to Pfieffer's Catwoman.

Nicole Kidman's fantastic eye candy, but what's her thing, she's obsessed with Batman? Her character's useless beyond that. One more reason why Forever sucks.

I feel bad for the guy, too, since it seems like he wanted to do a darker Batman, but after Burton weirded the shit out of Returns, Warners sure as shit wasn't going to let the cash go run dry. Everything about Forever down to the casting was calculated to draw a certain audience and make a shit-ton of money, which it did. When they went to remake it as Batman & Robin, which is beat for beat the same story, but with the gay and retardation cranked up to 11, people finally succumbed, and thank God they did.

Schumacher spends most of the B&R commentary apologizing for the film; he should chalk Forever in there, too. All of the interesting psychological story was cut in favor of Jim Carrey/Tommy Lee Jones mugging for the camera and setting out to bug me to no end. Carrey's Riddler is too much like The Joker, while Heath Ledger's Joker feels like what I'd want the Riddler to be, at least in terms of how he stages these elaborate moral dilemmas with clues/traps/etc... What gives?
