Because 89 Batmobile is all time classic and always be the Batmobile.

Though 66 should be more that's classic than 89 one.

Watched this again for the first time in many years and boy did I laugh my ass off at Riddler's stunt double in the Bruce Wayne kidnapping scene. So terrible.

The Joker's stunt double is the most frightening thing i've ever seen.

Yeah, I don't see any specific comments about her. This is the only time I've seen Julie talk about her:


Quote:
“I adore Anne Hathaway,” Newmar, who famously filled out the Catwoman catsuit on the 1960s Batman TV series, tells PopcornBiz of the actress who’s taking up the mantle for director Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises.” “First of all, she's so gorgeous, and there's something so sweet about her, and I know that she has all these other [performing] abilities. I think she'll be splendid!”

Didn't she say she wanted Angelina Jolie to play the role? I guess she changed her mind after seeing DKR.

Yes she did say that just after TDK came out back in July '08: http://articles.nydailynews.com/2008...mar-chat-rooms

Her comments about Anne I linked were made after Anne was officially announced as Catwoman for TDKR. She had faith in Anne to deliver. So did Michelle Pfeiffer.

Wonderful gals. The Catwomen stick together.

They are wonderful... but I always chuckle when they are asked those questions.

It's like, what else are they gonna say? They aren't going to bad mouth the respective actress.

Yes, but I think they are genuine in what they say. They could just make a brief response like "I think she'll do a good job" or something like that. But they put love into their answers. Julie said she adored Anne. She called Anne gorgeous, and sweet, and said she had many other acting abilities, and that she'll be splendid.

I remember what she said about Michelle...

''Loved her. She's one of the great actresses of my time. And that costume...''

I thought she was saying she was one of the great actresses from her generation, but I pick it up wrong.

Yep. And Julie did put thought into explaining her take on TDKR's Selina characterisation, showing she has an understanding of the character. I like Julie and her Catwoman, though at the same time, if she didn't like Anne's performance it's not like we need her seal of approval to like what we like.

We don't even know if shes seen it yet... she proabably won't.

Then when asked she'll just say, ''Oh she was divine''.

Probably not...

Most actors don't like others stepping on thier own iconic territory. They just put on a brave face.

Even Adam West (Who HASN'T seen BR) couldn't give Michelle Pfeiffer a full compliment:

''I though Michelle Pfeiffer's performance was quite good. She took what Julie and the others did and added to that''.

Watch it there Mr. West, you might hurt yourself.

Burt Ward has seen Batman Returns. He didn't like it at all. He said it was too violent. He didn't comment on the actors though. Yvonne Craig didn't like Returns either, but she liked the first Burton movie.

He has commented on Jim Carrey's Riddler. And on Chris O' O'Donnell's Robin.

Well given what we know about Kane and all the creative credit he stole from Bill Finger, I don't take anything that guy had to say seriously regarding Batman.

Some actors will. Christian Bale didn't really badmouth his replacement on the Newsies musical. I was bored at work one day and skimmed through an interview he gave with EW I think it was, and he said he had no interest in it and didn't even know who was playing his character. Not a ringing endorsement, but not exactly an insult I guess.
