If you told me I had to choose between Christopher Nolan’s Batman films and the 1990s Batman: The Animated Series, I would choose the latter every day of the week and twice on Sunday. I don’t think Nolan’s films are bad, but their stubborn adherence to “reality” and severe distaste for anything comics-related makes them pale to the diversity of tone and imagination the Animated Series was able to accomplish. Granted, Nolan has only three movie to tell his story while B:TAS had hours upon hours, but I think TAS has a better tone overall.
Now I guess I can have the best of both worlds as someone took the audio from recent The Dark Knight Rises teaser trailer and played it over similar footage from the animated series, Justice League Unlimited, and Under the Red Hood. The editor was unable to find footage from the animated series of Batman destroying Gotham in order to make his logo. Hit the jump to check out the remixed trailer.
