Director, Joel Schumacher (Batman Forever and Batman & Robin) commented about Christopher Nolan’s take on The Dark Knight Trilogy. Here’s what he says:
“I think what’s very interesting about Batman and how brilliant Chris Nolan is is, if you look at the last Batman, ours were at a much simpler time. Our job was to entertain the whole family. To make it fun and sell a lot of toys. It was a franchise. The last one is really about what we’re going through, the extraordinary gap between the haves and the have-nots… I think right now the last Batman is very reflective of the times we’re living in, which are scary times. I’m not a predictor of revolutions and I don’t think there will be one in the United States, but there are the seeds of it. When you have too many poor and too many rich, those are the seeds of revolution.”
It’s true, there was a difference in production during the time of Schmacher’s Batman because Tim Burton had left a dark tone for Batman in 1989 (Batman) and 1992 (Batman Returns). Warner Bros. wanted a lighter and more child friendly Batman for the whole family to enjoy. So, it is really Schmacher’s fault for the unsuccessful run of Batman Forever and Batman Robin? Eh, at least Schmacher acknowledges the brilliance of Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy.
