The Batman film series currently consists of five/six superhero films based on the fictional DC Comics character Batman. A sixth/seventh film, The Dark Knight, will be released in 2008. Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992) were directed by Tim Burton, and Batman Forever (1995) and Batman & Robin (1997) were directed by Joel Schumacher. The series was placed on hold due to the dismal box office performance of Batman & Robin. Warner Bros. attempted to pursue several projects to resurrect the series, but did not succeed in doing so until establishing Christopher Nolan to direct Batman Begins (2005), which rebooted the film series' continuity. Nolan is currently directing The Dark Knight, which continues the story restarted by Batman Begins, due out in 2008. Image File history File links Broom_icon. ...

The Batman

In 1983, director-screenwriter Tom Mankiewicz, who served as a creative consultant for the first two Superman films, wrote a script titled The Batman that traced the superhero's origins in the first act and had him fight against the Joker and take in Dick Grayson, who becomes Batman's sidekick Robin at the end of the film, setting up for a sequel. Mankiewicz described his intent to have "a dark adventure film" unlike the TV series. He and film producers Benjamin Melnicker and Michael Uslan had Jack Nicholson in mind to portray the Joker. Mankiewicz also desired to have David Niven as Alfred Pennyworth, William Holden as Commissioner Gordon, and Peter O'Toole as the Penguin, who makes a brief appearance in the story to assist the Joker. Mankiewicz's script was ultimately rejected by the producers in favor of a screenplay written by Sam Hamm, which would be developed into the 1989 film Batman.[1] // February 11 - The Rolling Stones concert film Lets Spend the Night Together opens in New York North Americas Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi Tootsie Trading Places, starring Dan Aykroyd and Eddie Murphy WarGames, starring Matthew Broderick and Ally Sheedy Superman III Flashdance Staying Alive Octopussy Mr. ...

Batman (1989 film)

The Batman project was linked to directors Joe Dante and Ivan Reitman, before Tim Burton was offered the project following the success of Pee-Wee's Big Adventure (1985). Frankenweenie producer Julie Hickson wrote a 30-page treatment, and Burton brought in Sam Hamm to write the script, taking inspiration from Batman: The Killing Joke.[2] Jack Nicholson was cast as the Joker, and Michael Keaton, who worked with Burton on Beetlejuice, was cast as Batman. Burton felt Keaton had the right physique: someone who was pretending to be something more powerful. The film shot at Pinewood Studios during the winter of 1988/89 where the entire backlot was turned into Gotham City to the cost of $5.5 million. The shoot was a complex one, as Warren Skaaren and Charles McKeown kept rewriting the script.[2] Batman was released on June 21, 1989, becoming the first film to break $100 million in ten days. Critics found the film acceptable, despite initial concern over Keaton's casting, though they felt Burton was more interested in the Joker's character.[2] Joe Dante (born November 28, 1946 in Morristown, New Jersey) is an American film director and producer of films generally with humorous and scifi content. ...

Batman Returns

Exhausted, Burton took a break and filmed Edward Scissorhands. While promoting Scissorhands, Burton admitted that Batman was his least personal movie. He accepted a contract to direct a Batman sequel in 1991. He turned down Hamm's initial draft, hiring Daniel Waters to write a new draft. Waters wrote a story exploring themes of duality in the Penguin and Catwoman. Danny DeVito and Michelle Pfeiffer were cast as Penguin and Catwoman, respectively.[3] Batman Returns began shooting in September 1991, in Burbank. A new production design reflected more "wit and irony", with Stan Winston leading the creation of the film's make-up and visual effects.[3] The film was released on June 19, 1992 and broke the records set by Batman. In its opening weekend, it grossed approximately $50 million, but there was a critical backlash, with many feeling it was too dark. There were also accusations that Burton had put in too many villains, and that he was more interested in visuals than storytelling.[3] Edward Scissorhands is a 1990 American fantasy film, directed and co-written by Tim Burton and written by Caroline Thompson. ...

Batman Forever

At the time the third Batman film went into production, it was initially going to be directed by Burton with Michael Keaton. Chris O'Donnell was cast as Robin. Tommy Lee Jones was then cast as Two-Face to replace Burton's choice of Billy Dee Williams, although Burton never intended on using the character in the film but had left it open as a possibility in future installments. Schumacher approached Robin Williams to play the Riddler, who after some deliberation turned down the role. Instead Schumacher cast Jim Carrey. Renee Russo was deemed too old to play Kilmer's love interest, and therefore was replaced by Nicole Kidman.

After some negotiating, Keaton left the film as he was unhappy with the script being lighter-in-tone and the absence of Tim Burton. The film's budget was approximately $90 - $100 million and earned $184,031,112 (including a record breaking $52.8 million opening weekend) in total domestic sales and $152.5 million worldwide (according to Box Office Mojo[4]) surpassing the ticket takings for Tim Burton's Batman Returns, making it the most commercially successful movie of the summer of 1995 and second-best of that year (next to Toy Story). It was also the third highest grossing Batman movie as of 2005 (after the 1989 original and 2005's Batman Begins). This success came as a surprise to the filmmakers, who were constantly told by the studio that no one wanted a Batman movie and it was only going to be a moderate success.

Batman Forever obtained generally mixed reviews. Much of the negative reaction came from the drastic makeover of the franchise (most of it led by Joel Schumacher at the will of the Warner Bros. executives)[citation needed]. Due to the fact that Batman Returns earned less than the original, Warner Bros. insisted the movie to be more "family friendly" to improve merchandising turnover. This included deleting over 30 minutes of footage, including Two-Face escaping from Arkham Asylum, the resolution to the Red Book subplot, and a sequence in which Bruce Wayne confronts a section of the Batcave with a giant bat. Further editing rearranged the first half of the film to start it off with an action scene. The end results reflected the third Batman movie with an overall tone that seemed to be lighter in comparison to its Burton predecessors.

Batman & Robin

Batman & Robin is the fourth and final installment in the comic book-inspired film series initiated by Tim Burton, and the second directed by Joel Schumacher. Released in 1997, it starred George Clooney as Batman and Chris O'Donnell returning as Robin, and introduced Batgirl (Alicia Silverstone), a niece of Bruce Wayne's butler Alfred (Michael Gough). The villains in this movie are Poison Ivy, played by Uma Thurman, Mr. Freeze, played by Arnold Schwarzenegger (who received top billing for this film), and Bane, played by Jeep Swenson. Unlike the previous three films Tim Burton was not involved in any stage of production.

Future

In June 2007, Christian Bale said that the script for The Dark Knight left room for a follow-up to a third film as part of Nolan's revival series, which would include the trial of the Joker and the scarring of Harvey Dent, transforming him into the villain Two-Face.[5]


Nolan explained that as long as he is directing, he is not including Robin in the franchise because Christian Bale was still portraying a "young Batman", which meant Robin was "still in a crib somewhere".[6] In addition, Nolan considered the Penguin difficult to portray on film, explaining, "There are certain characters that are easier to mesh with the more real take on Batman we're doing."[7] This article does not cite any references or sources. ...

Prior to the release of Batman & Robin, a script was commissioned for a fifth film,[33] to be written by screenwriter Mark Protosevich.[34] Director Joel Schumacher was contracted to direct the next film,[35] with actors George Clooney and Chris O'Donnell interested in reprising their roles. In July 1997, after Batman & Robin had a $43 million opening weekend, the film dropped 63% to $15.7 million the following weekend. The drop called into question the continuation of the Batman film series.[33] The following July, tabloids reported that Madonna would be cast as the Joker's wife, seeking revenge.[36] The following August, Internet rumors surfaced that Scarecrow would be the film's next villain and possibly be portrayed by Howard Stern.[37] Batman and Robin, see Batman and Robin (serial). ...

[Superman] is clear, bright, all that is noble and good, and Batman represents the dark, obsessive and vengeful side. They are two sides of the same coin and that is material for great drama." The director was scheduled to begin filming in early 2003,[45] for a 2004 release after completing The Perfect Storm, with screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker attached to write the script for the superhero film.[46] The script would feature both Metropolis and Gotham City, as well as three strong female roles.[47] Warner Bros. ...
