^But before you weren't talking about your own personal preferences, you were talking about whether "audiences" were "ready to accept" a lighter Batman. Those are two completely different conversations.
Right. Maybe general audiences will accept it. But I can't speak definitively for them. But I can speak for myself and I'm not interested.
And lets differentiate between "lighter" and "silly." A lighter tone in a live-action feature might work for me, lighter as in current Marvel film style. A silly tone in live-action I'm not interested in.
