Needs Help: Continuity Reboot get usage counts

I think Batman is a good example, but this picture might not be. Maybe a picture contrasting wacky Batman with gritty!batman or animated! batman with liveaction?

I agree. Batman & Robin wasn't even a reboot and George Clooney was just The Other Darrin. A contrasting picture of wacky and dark Batman would definitly be better. Maybe have Adam West Batman, possibly doing the batusi, next to a picture of either Christian Bale Batman or Micheal Keaton Batman would work.

Reading over the pages, I think somebody's convinced that Batman Forever and Batman & Robin are their own continuity. Personally I could've sworn Forever was supposed to be a direct link to Tim Burton's two films (despite Harvey Dent changing from Lando Calrissian to Agent K), and that the only reboot here was when Christopher Nolan stepped in...

Previous thread.
Theoretically, that is treating each group of movies directed by the same person (Burton, Schumacher, Nolan) as a continuity reboot. I think only Batman Begins is a proper reboot though. Oh, no, it is supposed to be establish->decay->reboot.

Hm, reading that thread, it looks like the three-panel was posted without consensus and the thread ended in an auto-lock instead of a crowner. Another option was:

Huck: What's your name? The Mysterious Stranger: Satan.
[up] That's much better than the one we've got. It gets my vote.

[up][up][up]I prefer the suggestion in the other thread of using Returns as the first one with Begins as the second, but that works well enough.

Yeah, the suggestion is way better than the current.

One or two more votes and we can make the swap.
I'm for the suggestion

Alright, it's up and tagged. Currently, it's potholed to Batman, but I think we need a caption that explains the change and can be linked to the respective movies.

I'm wondering if the Film.Batman Begins pothole should instead be a Film.The Dark Knight Saga pothole, myself. I can see good arguments for both...

[up] I'd be fine with either; I actually started to pothole it to the latter but changed my mind.

Hearing nothing, the caption's up as is. Locking up.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
