    I'd imagine they'd change at least 1 or 2 things if looking to the Golden Age comics with Batman in them.

    While I think I'd enjoy an animated period piece based on Golden Age Batman, I don't recall that he ever wandered the world in that era. I don't really care for his world-wandering too much, so that's a plus for me.

    I'd probably like a live-action one (both live or animated should be treated seriously), but I just don't think that's ever going to happen.

    Based on the Watchmen series trailer, it looks like they're going to have some flashbacks to earlier eras, so that might be something to look out for.

    A League of Extraordinary Gentlemen series would be interesting, much like how I enjoyed Penny Dreadful.

    I'd love to futz with some timelines though (so they overlap) and do a Gotham By Gaslight, Amazonia, and Superman: War of the Worlds series set in the late Victorian Age. I love a good period piece/costume drama.

    I would be convinced that DC/Warner has no interest in making money.

    Dunno if it could work as a movie series, but yeah, I'd DEFINITELY want to see this Batman done in live action. Maybe as a premium TV show.

    I recently re-read the early Kane/Finger stories and they kinda bust the myth that Batman started as this street-level crime-fighter who fought muggers and drug-dealers and organized crime in a city that was a cesspool of corruption. The early Batman is the perfect pulp character - he fights vampires, monsters, evil scientists, and would-be dictators armed with ray guns! I mean there's an insane creativity to the early Batman stories that easily trumps the early Superman stories in terms of tonal variety and narrative options.

    Characterization-wise, the early Batman was also much more of a daredevil adventurer. Sure, the origin story was introduced about six or seven issues in, but this definitely wasn't a Bruce Wayne weighed down by his parent's deaths. Yup, he swore an oath once to spend his life "warring against evil"...so he decided to get on with the job and have fun doing so!

    I'd definitely love to see an adaptation of the Hugo Strange Monster Men story and the Mad Monk story. The 'Dirigible of Doom' might be a fascinating story to adapt - it involves Batman fighting a dictator who's flying around in a dirigible armed with a ray-gun. Its also, interesting enough, the first story where Batman is accepted as a hero by the citizens of the then-unnamed Gotham City.

    Would love a movie based in the 30's.

    Golden Age is the best version of any character to me, especially Batman. Im actually angry they never write comics set in that period now, because time changed and the concept of Batman and a family of kid sidekicks doesn't hold up as well unless you changed him into a GODJERK and it collapses onto itself. Also without technology, he works much more smart, more genuine. I'm all for Golden Age Batman anything.
