In terms of story, about fifteen years ago (like, back when I was in high school) I came up with an idea for a Batman movie that I've kept with me, refining it here and there over the years as my view of the character changed, that would have been about Batman following a lead on the man who killed his parents. In the movie, it would be the first lead on the murderer since he'd become Batman, and it would pretty much consume him, making him even more of a dick than usual. Bruce would have been Batman for around ten years, Tim Drake would be Robin, Dick Grayson would be Nightwing, Barbara Gordon would be there, as Oracle, in the wheelchair -- it would pretty much take place in the late-90s status quo of the comics.

As far as style and presentation, I love the idea of acknowledging the silliness of Batman, but still playing it straight. I'd love to open with Bruce Wayne getting dressed as Batman in a fully lit room, and looking ridiculous, and then flipping off the lights and moving outside into the night and suddenly looking dangerous and mysterious and very much Batman.

Thematically, the movie would be about the importance of family, both Bruce's murdered parents and the surrogate family he's surrounded himself with since.

If I had the money and the rights, that's how I'd do it.
