BATMAN BEGINS not a "comic book movie"

Found this article via Super Hero Hype: Film Rotation | Quick BATMAN BEGINS snippet!. It describes Christian Bale's take on the movie, "We're making a film based on a much loved graphic novel. I think to use the term 'comic book' really under values the source material!"

Now,either he's just a really cool frood, or he's trying to garner support from the huge comic book geek audience that Marvel's earned and that the Schumacher Batman movies lost (very deservedly). Either way--I cannot wait for this film.
