When it comes to the battle between DC and Marvel on the big screen, it is fair to say that DC have only really had two very successful characters in Batman and Superman, who they are continuing to focus their latest push around. We have seen many different Batman movies over the years, some good, some bad and some in between, but there is one person who hates them all.
Frank Miller is the man who was responsible for giving us Batman and, while promoting his upcoming movie Sin CIty: A Dame to Kill For, he spoke about seeing Batman on the big screen. Frank says that he has never sat through a whole Batman movie, as he has never felt that the character has been adapted the right way for the big screen.
Miller told Playboy, "When people come out with movies about characters I’ve worked on, I always hate them. I have my own ideas about what the characters are like. I mean, I can’t watch a Batman movie. I’ve seen pieces of them, but I generally think, 'No, that’s not him.' And I walk out of the theater before it’s over."
Frank was then asked if that includes the Christopher Nolan Batman movies, to which he replied, "It includes all of them. I’m not condemning what he does. I don’t even understand it, except that he seems to think he owns the title Dark Knight. [laughs] He’s about 20 years too late for that. It’s been used."
It will be interesting to see what Frank Miller will have to say about Ben Affleck's Batman in the latest version of the character for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
