    These people must really hate Jon Peters. Did anyone else notice how Danny Elfman was like the only person to mention Jon Peters. Everyone else acted as if he didn't exist. So much hate...

    Strangely enough he was not interviewed either or given a special thanks in the end credits(Keaton and others who did not do new interviews even got a credit) even though he was a huge part of the production and marketing of the movie. Maybe his recent split with WB caused him not to contribute.

    From what I've always heard, Peters gave Burton a hell of a hard time while making the movie. And there's a rumor going around that one day he gave Burton an exceptionally hard time and Keaton went and intimidated him, in the batsuit! After that he eased up on Burton considerably.

    Seems a bit farfetched, but that would be kick ass if true.

    If that's true, the coolness factor on Keaton went up about ten times!

    Yeah, if Keaton in the original batsuit came up to me like that, I'd punch him. He'd fall down, and he wouldn't be able to get up.

    If anyone here ever saw An Evening With Kevin Smith , youd see what kind of person Jon Peters is, a very crazy man.
    p.s That keaton/bat story was excellent,Batman stands up for the people!

    That story of Keaton threatening Peters and Guber might be true because I've also heard that Jack Nicholson got into arguments with Peters and Guber. And, on the DVD Burton speaks about how positive Nicholson was to him and helpful, etc. Although I think Jon Peters might have been the real prick. At least Burton and company mention Peter Guber a couple of times on the DVD. They never mention Jon Peters. Danny Elfman, Robert Wuhl, and Mark Canton are the only people who speak of Jon Peters. Everyone else pretty much acknowledge Peter Guber. So, I guess, Jon Peters was the real prick and Peter might have been influenced a few times to be a prick.

    I heard Nicholson got into a lot fights with Basinger as well

    And a little off topic, did anyone else fight it sad and funny when Wuhl said he was so excited when his character didnt die at the end of Batman so he could be in the sequel, and then was bummed because he wasnt asked back for the sequel.

    Anybody find it funny when keaton was like " Yeah people will say " Hey Batman! " and he was like " Couldnt they be a little more creative? " or somthing like that, I think it shows he definatly didnt want the typecast that Reeves got, but he got it anyway.

    Jon "Giant Spider" Peters needs to go back to hair dressing. BTW, the extras on the '89 DVD are a LOT better and more insightful than the Batman Begins' extras.

    Those who are interested in hearing more about Peters/Guber should read the book Hit and Run- which is about the rise and fall of Peters and how they took over Sony Pictures for a short time. There is a lenthy chapter on Batman in there where they interview Burton and he said that basically Guber was very much involved in the preprod of the film, while Jon Peters was the one always on set and there was a time according to the book where they pressured Burton so much that he ran off set- there is a scene in Burton's Ed Wood that is exactly like this, so that incident probably inspired it. While Peters probably would have ruined Superman, he did have some good ideas for Bat 89 and was hugely involved in the marketing hype. Also yes Speilberg did ban them from Color Purple and they also were barely involved with Rain Man even though they were credited on it. In fact Peters was so clueless about the story of Rain Man , the one time he went to the set he asked Tom Cruise "Your playing the ******ed one right?", according to the book.

    The guys a grade A prick. Imagine what 'wild Wild West' couldve been if it wasnt for him and his giant spider fetish! :)

    Seem to recall the British press in 89 ran a story that he was seeing Basinger at the time and he was insanely jealous of the kissing scenes between her and Keaton and was convinved that Jack was trying to get into her pants.

    Wasnt he the guy who didnt want Superman to fly because he didnt think the audience would be able to relate to him?! WTF?!!!

    That quote in the post above about what he asked Tom Cruise is hilarious.

    Another story of a producer who's al ego and no knowledge of the source material.

    He wanted Brainic to raze polar bears at the FoS and have a gay black robot sidekick. He also wanted Brainic to have a dog so they could sell toys of it, not to mention the thanagarian snar beast. Hes crazy and hes a prick. hes a crick, or prazy, which ever you prefer.

    Man, that is comedic gold. I can just see him saying that, with his perma-tan and bouffant hair.

    I think no truer word has ever been said when I say "LOL"
