God, I wish I had been around then and old enough to realize that I've experienced no other live-action Batman than Adam West. Seeing the B89 costume for the first time must have been friggin mind-blowing for those people.

Heh, yep. I first saw it on VHS at a friend's house when I was seven. It was unlike anything I had seen before: he was like Darth Vader in the way that he effortlessly destroyed his enemies, but he was a good guy! A good guy who hanged baddies by the throat from catwalks and threw others into chemical vats!

We spent the rest of the summer playing "Batman the Movie" on the C64.

And not just the costume, but Batman in general. It's hard to imagine a time, especially for my generation that was born after this movie's release, that the Adam West show was what the mainstream knew of Batman. I mean look at that news video Kane posted. There's a reason why everyone keeps making those Adam West references, even in relation to the Burton film. That's what people associated with Batman.

So it's pretty incredible to think how this took everyone off guard. Just because the mainstream really knew Batman like this before. Hence the utter shock people had for what the film actually turned to be. We just accept the Batman today, but back then, the notion of Batman was utterly different.

It's just a testament to the film itself in how it managed to suddenly erase all preconceptions of who Batman was. To the extent where it frightened people.

I was 25 when this movie came out and had been a diehard fan of Batman(including Adam West). But what today's generation don't realize is how much the Adam West-era Batman was heavily frowned upon by both critics and fans. There was so much disdain and fear of having any association with that treatment that they wouldn't even consider a cameo by West or Ward in the film. They went to great lengths to explain this would have no connection with what people knew from that television series. Plus you have to keep in mind there were no rubber molded suits before this movie. So people had no idea what they were in for.

Batman '89 really opened the door for an entire industry and essentially broke the riddle on how to conceptualize heroes in "tights". To this day just about every hero who is associated with tights has a rubberized outfit in one form or another. Even Superman has a rubber suit now, although the technology has somewhat shifted in how that is applied. So Batman '89 had not only conceptual challenges, it had cultural challenges (and prejudices) to deal with.

Adding Michael Keaton to the mix really gave it a high stakes feeling as well. I still have the original Wall Street Journal edition that has Michael Keaton's face illustrated along with a story about fans taking out a petition to have him kicked off the production. Thank God Keaton didn't have to contend with internet back then! It was bad enough on the social media of it's day. The saving grace to the whole perception of the project was the fact that Jack Nicholson was attached to the project. His career was at a all time high at that point, so his inclusion did for Batman what Marlon Brando did for the first Superman movie in 1978. It brought legitimacy to the project.

So I'll always have a tremendous love and respect for that first Batman film in '89. There's no telling where the hero industry would be today if that film hadn't opened the door for other franchises to be in vogue as a concept for film. Until Batman '89, the industry still considered this genre to be mostly a B-rated license intended for little kids and under-budgeted television shows. People who love these movies owe much to the Burton/Keaton creation.

Indeed. Her background can attest to that, photographing a war zone in Corto Maltese.

It's not often I read a wall of writing in a post, but I did this one, and I'm wondering how Blade movie could have been if not for this movie coming out 9 years before it

The 89 suit's still my favorite, but I'm also really liking the Batfleck suit, although I won't be really able to judge it until I get to see it in action.


P.S 89 still has the best live action Batmobile.

You should watch Keaton back in 89 on David Letterman promoting the film. Stuff about Nicholson - "let the suit do the work kid" something like that and what a great advice from a wise man.

Off topic but, Keaton's my pick for old Bruce Wayne if they ever make a live action Batman Beyond film.

He's a better fit for a more "grumpy" Bruce Wayne.

I can't see Kilmer or Clooney as older Bruce Waynes. And Bale's version would be too busy sippin some cocktails on a beach somewhere, not giving a **** about Gotham.
