Well actually I think that the Burton films were the only ones to really specifically bend on the whole "no killing rule". The Nolan films made that a part of his code (though there are a few bends you can find with that. Like how Batman let Rah's Al Ghoul die in Batman Begins when he could of saved him) but Burton didn't really care as much about that. Since to be fair Batman has killed people before in the past in the early comics so it is still a part of his continuity. And something people are free a bit to change though now that it's more a part of his definite character seems more likely folks will stick to that. Guess we'll see if the next director who comes around in 6-7 years telling their Batman story will feel the same way.
Instead of just using this new signature to celebrate a thousand more post, let me list of all the great things you can expect of me on this board for 2012:
...... The same talkbacks you saw me do last year but with new episodes.
