I like the second to last sentence in this quote from the IGN interview with grant morrison.Â It sounds like he’s finally figured out what fans want in their Batman stories.
IGN Comics: It sounds like that goes back to what you were trying to do with Final Crisis, where you cut out all the quieter moments and just got down to “the drums and the bass”, as you called it â€“ the meat of the story.
Morrison: Yeah. I went to see Crank: High Voltage when we were in Los Angeles. I had just watched that, and I thought everything else just looks like slow motion, really. I wanted to get that effect into the comics as well. To me that was just a great action film, and every action film after is going to have to try and move at that speed. I really wanted to get that into Batman and Robin. Again, the stories are really easy. There aren’t big multi-layered Gnostic parables this time around. Like I said, it’s like a really bad trip cartoon. [laughs]
We’ll see if it holds true in the series, although I’m still not sold on Quietly’s art for the series.
