I just read an article on www.comicbookresources.com about how back in the 40's, after Welles' finished with Citizen Kane that he considered doing the first Batman movie. He even went as far as to casting the villians and drew up designs for the costume. The villians were The Riddler, The Joker, Two-Face and Catwoman. The movie was to begin with Bruce Wayne's parents murder and end with Batman unmasked fighting against the villians in a prison they have taken over. It was suppose to be an adult drama, kinda like Tim Burtons first Batman. Think about how cool that would have been. A Citizen Kane like Batman. I think that would definitely be the best Batman ever made. It was abandoned in the end when the studio would not allow Welles to be Batman in it so he walked away from the project.
