Who cares if Burton's films revamped the comic book and Nolan's didn't? I certainly don't. I care about the film telling an interesting story with equally interesting characters in the films own unique way. And Nolan's Batman films do that much better than Burton's films do.
LOLWUT?! Man the wrong-ness of your statement has transversed time and space...
Not to mention, Batman and Batman Returns already start to feel old and out of date, especially Batman Returns, which doesn't even feel like a good film anymore. Batman Begins and The Dark Knight still feel brand new, and it doesn't seem like that's going to change any time soon.
With all your hub-bub and flap-trap about Wizard of Oz and Gone With the Wind and Stagecoach, youre going to call movies WHICH SHAPED THE ENTIRE COMIC BOOK WHICH INSPIRED MORE BATMAN FILMS TO BE MADE old and out of date?
Burton's Batman basically revamped the comic book, increasing sales to the point of spinning off more books, cartoons and video games. This led to Batman Returns and then two shittier Batman films. All this time, BECAUSE OF BURTON'S FILMS, Batman has been the most iconic DC character for 20 years.
If Burton's films hadnt done this, Nolan's Batman probably wouldve never been made.
And Nolan's work doesnt even effect DC's Batman comics NOW - theyre influenced more by the stoywriting of Jim lee and Grant Morrison. Neither of which based ANYTHING on Nolan's Batman movies.
