Does the reuse of Khan bother mostly fans? Odd, because reusing the Joker and giving him different looks never seemed to bother Batman fans or general audiences.
Oh man, people HOWLED their disgust when they were told Heath Ledger was going to play the Joker.

"What!? That guy from Brokeback Mountain?? WTF!!! And he's wearing face paint instead of being permanently discolored?! That's stupid! Chris Nolan is a traitor!!"

That's pretty much how it started.
I didn't know that. I got to join some Batman boards.

Of course, over $500 million later, who was howling in disgust, I wonder?

Fans are sometimes the biggest detriment to a franchise.

(By the way, I loved how Ledger played the Joker.)
