Default Re: Tim Burton's Batman 3

Personally, I think Batman Forever is very Burton-esque. Kilmer plays the role of Bruce/Batman in a way that evokes Keaton's performance, the visuals of the film are very much in the same vein as those from Batman '89 and Batman Returns - if lit more brightly, and the characterization of the villains is very similar to the over-the-top nature of the way Burton's films characterized The Joker, The Penguin, and Catwoman.

For me, the only significant difference between Batman Returns and Batman Forever is that the disturbing freakishness of the former is gone from the latter. Otherwise, the film feels very much like Burton could've been in the director's chair.
