The joker has a lot of room for variation... Batman not so much.
What? Every screen version of Batman has been very different from the last. There's plenty of room for variation.
Batman does not have that same range... and even less so on what a studio will allow on the big screen. When it comes to live action movie batman you have way more say in the costume(if its going to have bat nipples) and the gadgets employed then if Batman is going to be anything different then quiet, vanishing on people when they are talking and considered a vigilante.
This is only true because of convention; because it's what's always been done with the character. There is absolutely no reason that Bruce Wayne couldn't have earned his money via snowboarding championships and be portrayed as a stoner dickhead. The only reason he isn't is because that's not how people think of Bruce Wayne. But this isn't a historical figure we're talking about, it's a fictional character that someone made up decades ago. As far as I'm concerned, all that actually matters about Bruce Wayne/Batman's character is that he is wealthy, his parents died, and he dons a costume to fight crime. Everything else is open to interpretation. Now I'm not saying that anyone is going to successfully make a film where Batman is a woman with dissociative identity disorder who only THINKS she's a billionaire playboy, I'm just saying that if someone had the creativity and the gall to make that work, it could work. Batman as a pop-culture icon will probably never change that much, but it's a little silly to assume that it's impossible that he could.
we should make Nick Cage Superman because hes such a comic nerd he named his kid Kal El.
I certainly wouldn't call for Obama to remove Affleck from the project as some weirdoes did on the White House website yesterday. These people really need to get lives.http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Hollywood/2013/08/23/batman-fans-obama-affleck
