Screen time: USA Today chats with comics scribe/screenwriter David Goyer about Blade: Trinity, Batman Begins, and what went wrong with the Batman movie franchise:

"I think the movies started getting too much like the TV show. It got campy. Back when the movies were coming out, the comic books were in a very good place. (Comic book illustrator) Frank Miller was doing some amazing work. They were really dark. The Joker had killed Robin, and the books had a very grim tone. They weren't messing around. But the movies ignored all that, and the fans turned against it."
