I just finished reading The Killing Joke, and HOMG, I've got a meta for the ending "joke". This has probably been done before, but I'd just like to state the obvious, in any case. I'm late to the party—so shoot me.

This is most likely overly-wordy and repetitive in some parts. Don't say I didn't warn you! :P

This is just a few ideas I had after looking at various ways Batman and Joker have been portrayed in the movie verses. I'm a huge fan of Nolanverse Batman/Joker, but I found myself severely turned off by Burtonverse Batman/Joker. Also, I watched Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker, and I thought the relationship there fell somewhere in the middle.

So, hey, why not meta it?

These are just a few thoughts that I had regarding the differences between the Burtonverse and Nolanverse. Most are focused on the portrayals of Batman and Joker. There are spoilers for these movies, obviously, so if you haven't seen them or don't want to be spoiled, please don't read! I'm focusing specifically on Batman by Burton and The Dark Knight by Nolan, thanks to the appearance of the Joker in both movies.

I wrote this because after seeing The Dark Knight, I (like so many others) became an instant Joker fan. So, I went out and rented Batman (which I've never seen, I know I suck) to see more of the Joker. Well, I was in for a surprise there. I knew the acting would be different, but the entire movie had differences throughout it that got me thinking. The fandoms for these movies must be so different, and the same could probably be said for every other Batman verse. Each one has specific rules and themes that the others don't necessarily match.

At any rate, I wanted to do a comparison of The Dark Knight and Batman because, as I see it, the Batman fandom is facing a huge influx of newbies with no previous experience in any Batman verse. I figure many of those people, like myself, will expect a lot of it to be similar to The Dark Knight. So, hey, I guess this ends up being my idea of the differences between the movies and what I would expect to find in the fandoms. That doesn't mean either fandom follows my reasoning, but I think the differences will probably show up in some fic, at the very least.

The summary of the rest of my post, or TL;DR: Nolanverse wins over Burtonverse in almost every way.
