There exists at least a handful of comic book adaptations that either completely eschew or compartmentalize the origin material. Be they successful as art or not, they represent the idea that it is possible to start (or restart) a comic book series without retelling the same origin.
You look at the cast of Batman Forever and wonder "What went wrong?" Tommy Lee Jones as Two Face? Nicole Kidman as the love interest? Sexy! Instead Jones goes way over-the-top and Kidman reads like she's in a 1-900 ad.
