Yeah.. it's just that every couple years, there's a new Batman movie.. and it's not really a reboot.. I mean, they just re-tell the Batman story differently.. making it more relevant to what is going on in the world at the time, giving it a new updated look, etc. I never used to get it, cause I could never get into any of the Batman movies.. Every couple years, there'd be a new Batman movie.. much like James Bond, which I could never get into too much either - as I found all of the movies way too similar. The Dark Knight was great though - no complaints there. Why do they make these remakes? Because these are BRANDS that people know. A brand can be a powerful thing - be it coca-cola, star trek, batman, or x-men. Creating a new story from scratch is a bit of a risk - with an established franchise, brand name, or simply a remake - you'll at least know that people will know the characters, the technology, the quirks of the story, etc. It's less risky, so we get a lot of sequels, prequels, and remakes.
