I want to see the turtles turned over to one of the great Wuxia movie directors- Tsui Harak, Ang Lee, or Stephen Chow- no western director could do the TMNT as a martial arts film like they could. And that's what I hope to see with the turtles; not 80's American gritty noir rubbish, but a dark Hong Kong martial arts tale of the futility of revenge.
This fad did get pretty old for awhile

Not afraid to say Batman Triumphant would be good if it was made. Don't be so quick to judge.

No because on paper B & R sounds like more of the same. Batman Triumphant would have been darker but still feel like the Burton style of movies. I'd happily sacrifice the Nolan trilogy for that fifth Burton era movie because it sounded amazing.

Batman Forever was a Joel Schumacher Batman movie with maybe 20% Tim Burton influence, who was on board as producer. Some of the same aesthetic from Burton's two movies was retained.

Batman & Robin was a Joel Schumacher Batman movie with 0% Tim Burton influence. In addition to spectacularly self-destructing the Batman movie franchise, for many this is also considered a leading candidate for "Worst Movie Ever Made."

What in the blue hell would make you or anyone else of sound mind think an additional Joel Schumacher Batman movie, again with 0% Burton influence, would be even one iota better than Batman & Robin?

Well, because Schumacher SAID it would be. He SAID it would dark, gritty, and Burtonesque.

Duh. If you can't trust the Overlord of Rubber Nipples and Neon, who can you trust?
