Tim Burton Reflects on Past Criticism Over His Batman Films, Blasts Batman Forever’s Nipple-Suit

June 7, 2022

The Dark Knight is perhaps the darkest of all popular superheroes, and that amuses director Tim Burton, who can recall when people were criticizing him in the late 80s and early 90s for going that route with his Batman movies. In 1989, Burton released his first Batman film with Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne. The two later collaborated on the sequel, Batman Returns, which was released in 1992. Burton walked away ahead of a planned third film due to some friction with the studio, and Keaton would soon after follow suit, leading to Joel Schumacher’s Batman Forever with Val Kilmer.
