Miller got the crime thing from “noir” movies like “Tokyo Drifter” and “Tokyo Joe”. He liked them because they were about people on the margins.

As we work with the actors and the director, we have a different kind of relationship. We go in, and it’s really collaborative work. We make changes and we discuss it.

I learn something every single time that I work with an actor or a director on the movie.

It is very easy to judge superheroes by the rules of the world and think that that is what they are for. That is not the case. Superheroes are just like all of us. They have strengths and weaknesses, fears and hopes. They just have been given superpowers by a being much greater than they are. While their powers might make them the strongest or fastest or smartest. It is their will, determination, and inner strength that is superhuman.

Miller has not been shy about his dislike of comic book adaptations.

This is interesting. If Frank Miller has been drawing crime and super heroes comic books since he was a little kid and he’s a graphic artist for over 40 years then he must have been thinking about crime and super heroes pretty early on.

Gotham City is the most advanced city in the world. It has skyscrapers, subways, and all the technological wonders of the day. This city symbolizes the best of modern civilization and it is where the League stands to fight against the forces of evil.

Frank Miller, in a talk at the University of British Columbia, said he’s not trying to influence people’s votes or political views.

Frank Miller has a point. There is no such thing as objective truth. All truths are subjective, and they change as they are interpreted by the people giving their opinion. I do agree with Frank that “The first draft of anything is crap.” The first draft of anything you produce is not going to be the best possible thing you can do, but it’ll be better than the best you are capable of coming up with.
