'The Dark Knight Rises' vs Original 1966 'Batman' Movie

'The Dark Knight Rises' vs Original 1966 'Batman' Movie

Let's face it, when it comes to movies we've certainly become a lot more serious as the years have rolled by. If the classic 'Top Gun' (which is now 28 years old) was remade today, it would be vastly different film. Look at the recent remakes of Total Recall, James Bond and Robocop - all edgier, angrier and more assertive than their predecessors. But perhaps the biggest evolution in film franchises is the Batman series.

If you think of the original Batman TV series, it featured The Joker, Penguin and CatWoman really as pantomime villains. Fast forward to the present era and those same characters have been portrayed in a far darker and darker and more menacing manner

To show just how much times have changed in Hollywood, Khalid Shahin has produced a side-by-side video comparing the funny original Batman movie from 1966, with the more recent The Dark Knight Rises in 2012.

Times, they are a changin'
