Batman barely appeared in flashback in Birds of Prey. Even so, the series is a Bat-show. Set in Gotham City (called New Gotham for no good reason), it stars his daughter, Alfred, Batgirl, and (recurring) Harley Quinn, all of whom are Bat-characters, with appearances by Catwoman (also in flashback), Clayface, and the Joker. However, it does not fit the theme of the template because it did not star Batman. The Live-action television list is short enough that there's plenty of room for Birds of Prey. I'm just wary of adding it because then the issue will come up about various cartoons Batman appeared in without being the central character. Doczilla 09:16, 21 October 2006 (UTC)
Aren't comic books a form of popular media? ike9898 19:38, 3 March 2007 (UTC)
Mask was a feature length film released in theaters. Shouldn't it be in the "films" table rather than simply "animation"? It seems less accurate to group it with the animated series just because it was a cartoon. Perhaps things should be changed to "film" and "television". 126.96.36.199 04:19, 18 April 2007 (UTC)
Previously, I'd made an edit to the template subcategorizing the Batman films and live serials to include two subcategories of Tim Burton's Batman series and Christopher Nolan's series. This change would, I believe, aid readers because it clearly demonstrates the connection between a given set of Batman franchise media. Other users agree, as we can see by templates such as Template:DC Comics films, which serves as a current testament to the usefulness of this style of organization.

Quite frankly, I disagree with this assessment. With regards to the other template, it was changed by you after I pointed it out. Second, I don't believe this to be true. Of course templates do not need to be over-specific, but I think that with regards to something so inherently specific as Batman in non-comic media, a distinction is not adding excessive complexity, and moreover, is helpful to those persons who are not intimately familiar with Batman film adaptations. Third, that is true -- but there should be some way of distinguishing between film series. Nolan's films and Burton's/Shomaker's are different qualitatively, and therefore ought to be distinguished in some way. If one-way linking is unacceptable according to Wikipedia policy (which has not been demonstrated), then there are obviously ways that a solution could be discussed. In conclusion, however, I think more opinions are needed on this issue; a back-and-forth will not reach substantive conclusions. KFan II (talk) 18:04, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
The animated straight to video film that is about to come out Batman: Year One needs to be added to the template, all the other original straight to video DC animated films are included. Jyenor86 (talk) 11:43, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
