Burton born the Bigscreen Batman franchise for DC and Warner Bros.. with 1989 Batman and its complement Batman Returns Which, to some accustomed to the strange little screens of Adam West and Burt Ward, seemed too dark, “very strange,” as Burton describes the reaction. The studio then chose Schumacher, who brought the Caped Crusader back into the camp he was showing on TV.
“They went the other way,” Burton recently said Empire Magazine. “That’s the funny thing about it. But then I was like, ‘Wait a minute.’ OK. Wait a second here. You’re complaining about me, I’m so weird, I’m so dark, and then you put nipples on the outfit? Go f*ck yourself. seriously. So yeah, I guess that’s why I didn’t finish [doing another film in the series]. “
A lot of ink has been spilled around the suit, which Val Kilmer wore in batman forever and George Clooney in batman and robin.
“I wasn’t thrilled with the nipples on the bat jumpsuit,” Clooney He said in 2014. “You know that’s not something you really think about when you put it on. You imagine all swimsuits have nipples and then you realize your outfit was really first. Batman was constantly cold I guess.”
Schumacher defended the decision.
“By the time Batman Forever came along, rubber casting had become more advanced,” he said Tell Vice in 2017. “So I said, let’s make them anatomical and give us pictures of that Greek case and those amazing anatomical drawings you see in medical books. He did the nipples and when I looked at them, I thought that was cool.”
