"What if they made an R-rated Batman movie?!"
"I actually wish, in that context, that Nolan had taken the creepiness UP a notch. Send a few kids into therapy, sure, but once word got out that Jimmy peed himself watching this thing, people would pack out the theaters to see a Batman film capable of forcing you to sleep with the lights on. This film falls far short of that, but in Bale’s extremely capable acting and Nolan’s innovation you can see the promise of what an R-rated Batman might have been. With just a little bit of this and that, taking Bale off the leash just a tad more, this thing could have been really twisted. And perhaps just what the franchise needed"I've got to agree with him. That would be the sho' nuff shit.
Those of you who aren't comic book fans might not get the reference, but there's a character called "The Punisher" whose book was basically R-rated, a few years, back. (Heck, it may still be.) It was ... liberating.
It was like we finally got a chance to see how the character was *supposed* to be.
Batman's a bad-ass by nature. Giving a director room to include profanity and raw material (violence, nudity, etc.) that pushes the boundaries and fucks with our minds would be awesome.
They'd definitely have to have a cooler-looking costume to keep us from slipping in and out of the supposedly "realism" of the flick, but I think it could be done well.
What do you think?
