Nice article, thanks DSJ. Personally, I am really looking forward to this movie. Batman has always been my favorite comic hero (along with the X-Men), and I hope that this movie lives up to expectations as much as possible. The best thing about this is I think that DC, the actors, directors, etc. have learned from the past Batman movies. They know what fans/people want to see, and what they don't. I kind of like the fact that they are "restarting" the franchise, and I hope that it turns out to be done very well. From what I have read of interviews of the people involved, they really want to make this a great film.
Also, I'm in the camp that thinks that Keaton is the best Batman of the film versions. When I first heard he was playing Batman, I thought it was a strange choice, but I ended up really liking him in the role. The 1989, first Batman, was my favorite of the movies. I think they steadily declined from there. I still do enjoy watching the old Adam West Batman on TV Land every so often though, sure its silly, but really that is what it was supposed to be to some extent. I remember watching the reruns a lot as I was growing up. Anyways, best of luck to all involved on this film, I hope the new "Batman Begins" can give this franchise a fresh start and we can see more of Bats on the big screen.
Also...from that article, DC really has been missing the boat so far on the "comic" movie surge of the past couple of years. It seems like Marvel has really been taking the reigns on this so far.
