I was cleaning up my folders today and came across this sketch I had done last year and unfortunately forgot about. This here is Chris Pratt as Batman; I have this idea that the next iteration of Batman in live-action media should be a modern take on what they did with him in the 60’s with Adam West. Call me crazy, call this a bad idea, well…YOU’RE WRONG. Something like this would be absolutely wonderful to cleanse the palette after the Nolan trilogy’s bleak seriousness (which don’t get me wrong, I staunchly believe that tone is much closer to what a definitive Batman story should be like - just look at my other Bat-work). A modern camp-comedy version though(which would actually be marketed as such, so it wouldn’t be misinterpreted as being psychotically bad like the Schumacher movies were) would be perfect because by poking fun at the Nolan movies and ESPECIALLY the comics as of late would in the long run be essential to distilling a finer product later on when another serious “definitive”-style live action Batman installment is attempted.
TL;DR Chris Pratt sketch for a modern Adam West-style Batman adaptation. Just pretend you don’t love the idea.
*also, slightly off-topic, I desperately want a Batman ‘66 video game on the level of Arkham City, and it needs to be made IMMEDIATELY while Adam West is still alive to voice it. End of Transmission.
