"The Dark Knight series is all from Batman’s point of view. But if you look at Dark Knight 2, you’ll see a Superman who’s much calmer than the one in the first Dark Knight. Batman and Superman are dead opposites. I love Superman. Do I love Batman more? They’re not people. They’re only lines on paper."

"My feeling was they’d never be that good of friends anyway. They’d kind of disagree on certain fundamental things. Superman can afford to be as nice about crime as he is, because he can fly, and he can do anything. He can beat up God if he wants to. But Batman has trained to fight a much tougher battle, and to me they were natural antagonists. But also, the main reason for doing anything; It made a good story."

This is an Elseworlds storyline that combines Batman with the films Nosferatu and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. It's a sequel to a comic called 'Superman: Metropolis' which combined Superman with (not surprisingly) Metropolis; I'm a fan of Bats, Nosferatu and Caligari, less so Supes and Metropolis so I'm just going to share this one.

"Batman isn't interesting because he has a cool car. It's great that he has a cool car. But he's interesting because he straightens the world out. And he brings order to a very chaotic world. Especially when you're a child. You need somebody, even if it's a fictional character, to tell you that the world makes sense and that the good guys can win. That's what these heroes are for."

Entertainment Weekly confirm that the director of the hugely enjoyable LEGO Batman movie Chris McKay is being tipped to produce a live action Nightwing movie!!

He's more of an animation director so far, his track record including Robot Chicken, Moral Orel and Titan Maximum but based on LEGO Batman you can't deny he's prepared to have some FUN with the concept of costumed superheroes (which the DCCU is so sadly lacking, thought their TV shows seem to have gotten the hint).

Bill Dubuque (The Accountant) is set to write the script.

And as a bit of a teaser... perhaps! ;) )

A.V. CLUB: So you actually consciously set out to change things in the comics industry?

FRANK MILLER: Well, I set out to remark upon them. And seeing how all these heroes had been castrated since the 1950s, and just how pointless they seemed to be... In this perfect world of comic books, which was what it was back then, why would people dress up in tights to fight crime?

A.V. CLUB: Because there wasn't anything bad enough going on back then to justify that extremism?

FRANK MILLER: It was just a bunch of goofy villains. It was 1985 when I started working on this, and I thought, "What kind of world would be scary enough for Batman?" And I looked out my window.
