^Well, after Batman: TAS
, conventional wisdom was that animation audiences would never settle for a "silly" approach to Batman again. But The Brave and the Bold
proved to be very popular and admired and scuttled that conventional wisdom. As I often point out, category doesn't determine quality -- quality
So if someone developed a silly approach to Batman for the movie reboot, it might work or it might not, depending on how well
it was done.
