      Correct, the Superman films, especially Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. That film got both Batman AND Superman wrong. But as far as the old George Reeves series becoming childish, there are worse things that can happen to the character. That's having a Superman movie that you don't want your kids to see. That's what Snyder gave us with BvS. A Batman movie doesn't necessarily have to be kid friendly, but a Superman movie has to be. If a movie focuses on both of them, then it is both a Batman and Superman movie and by default has to be appropriate for children.

    Only way to do it is to aim for a cartoon aesthetic. Take a cartoon script and produce it with live actors. Bruce Timm could so it.

Has Bruce Timm ever done live action? But I agree that his storytelling style is what they should aim for.


      It was for both grown-up and kids. I haven't watched the series for a while, so I'll take your word for it that it got more childish as it went further along. But I don't really fault the series for that. Everyone back in the fifties thought that comic books were for the kiddies.

      Which seems weird since a lot of WW2 and Korean War soldiers were comic book fans.

But that didn't carry over to wanting to read comics books when those soldiers were back in the States as civilians.
