INTERVIEW: Gail Simone Guides 'Blockbuster Update' of Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris
The Dark Knight Rises closes another chapter of Batman’s cinematic career in fine form, giving us the chance to look back at his nearly-half century in film and ask the all-important question: Which Batman movie was the best?
Okay, “best” is a relative term; what I’m really curious about is which one is your favorite? I’ll admit, for example, that Batman Returns is mine, as much for the weirdness and off-kilter nature of the whole thing as the actual story (I mean, come on: Christopher Walken? Danny DeVito as an exceptionally gross Penguin? An obviously broken Catwoman? What’s not to like), even though I think that all of the Nolan movies are technically “better” on a number of levels. So which Batmovie do you love the most?
As if you needed it, here’s a reminded of the contenders:
Batman Returns (1992)
Batman Forever (1995)
Batman and Robin (1997)
Batman Begins (2005)
The Dark Knight (2008)
The Dark Knight Rises (2012)
