It was corny at times, but this is definitely the darker storyline I prefer with Batman movies. Catwoman’s introduction and story alone are darker than all of Tim Burton’s original Batman. Then you have Danny DeVito’s Penguin. Even when he completely loses his mind by the end of the movie, he still makes the feeling of being an outcast or just a want to belong relatable. I may be completely sold on Michael Keaton as Batman as well. He takes the role to a different place by focusing on Batman being studious, constantly reading and researching. Most Batman actors I’ve seen really nail the tough, reclusive part of Batman’s nature, but to me it’s Keaton that focuses on all of the aspects of Batman’s identity.
