I'm not a big fan of the non-Bruce Timm animated movies, but the 70s angle has me intrigued. But why does DC see the need to ramp up the violence to get an R rating? It seems to me that ever since the 60s and 70s, DC has had an inferiority complex to Marvel, which was telling more sophisticated stories from the beginning, and now, DC is overcompensating by making many of its films (even the animated ones!) R-rated. They use more violence and/or language to secure the mature rating, but it's like a child's view of what an R-rated film is. Ironically, it's immature. They're also limiting their audience by excluding children. Are there no comics (or comic book movies) for kids anymore (outside of Marvel)?

PS Rumor going around that Batman: The Animated Series may see a revival on HBO MAX.
