    The deleted scenes are good, but the tonal whiplash the film already suffers from would've been unreal if those deleted scenes had made it in.

    I know I'm surprise WB didn't do a re-release Director's Cut Dvd..Nah come to think about it I'm not shock at all WB didn't do a Director's cut dvd lol
    I agree! With a little changes it would had been so much better and a pretty solid trilogy!

    The thing is that I don't think that Schumacher would've done those changes had he been given free reign, I think there'd perhaps be less commercialism but based on a lot of the instincts he showed on those films as to how to portray Batman, he'd have still made something questionable, maybe even moreso than the studio-driven product that he produced.

    Yeah he was force by the studio to make Batman Forever and Batman & Robin the way their were. Matter fact he said he loved the tone of the first films. I just hate that he took all of the blame for what WB wanted. Oh well Joel still made Batman Forever enjoyable for what it was and well Batman & Robin that's all on WB.

    I don't think all of Batman and Robin is on WB, nor all the bad parts of Batman Forever.

    The ass shots at the beginning of Batman and Robin, the nipples, I mean, that's all Schumacher. Sure, he was trying to satisfy commercialism as well in those films, but his footprint was all over the aesthetic of them.

    Good point! I kinda forgot about the nipples and the booty shots lol. I guess we can be fair and say it was both of their faults. Even though if WB didn't push for a light cheesy film,I don't think Joel would had put the ass shots in the movies. Now the nipples probably would had stayed lol

    The man has a body of work like CarWash,The Lost Boys(own the soundtrack!),A Time To Kill,St. Elmo's Fire,Falling Down,Flatliners,Sparkle(he wrote Sparkle and The Wiz!!!),The Wiz etc. It's because of WB pushing him to make Batman light,people tend to forget about that guy was making great films before Batman Forever and Batman Robin.Plus he has some underrated movies after them also!

    He's not a bad filmmaker, just a bad fit for Batman.

    My only condition for watching a Batman film is that the batsuit doesn't have nipples and both Schumacher films fail at that. I just dislike his insticts waaaay too much to stomach his films completely

    I mean you talk about movies that you haven’t even seen an awful lot.

    The Schumacher films are a huge part of Batman’s history, absolutely essential viewing, whether you like them or not.

    for my money, Suicide Squad and Justice League are way worse than either Schumacher film

    I've seen plenty of those films, I just haven't seen them entirely because there's just waaay too much stuff there I don't like.

    I have fun watching the Schumacher films. They are like Adam West's BATMAN on steroids. Are they perfect movies....no. Are they fun....yes.

    Everything clicked when I saw them described as a 90s take on the Adam West series. Couldn’t be more accurate.

    I lump the Adam West series, Brave and the Bold, and the Schumacher films in the same category. They’re all valid, light takes on the character that are part of the character’s adaptable history.

    There is room for light and dark Batman.

    I know some people get tired of me saying this...but....I am an old man (62)....when I was a kid (age 9) Batman was Adam West...and his Batman was what was being published in the comics at that time. A serious "I have no sense of humor" gritty Batman did not appear for 6 or 7 years. I've seen all types of Batmen being published and "hot" at the moment. Some I like, some I don't.....but they are all Batman.

    I'm just not a fan of the Adam West approach. I like Batman Forever, and it generally meets my expectations for what a Batman movie should be, but the things I don't like are largely the things most reminiscent of the Adam West version. Riddler and Two-Face are the major weak links. Then Batman & Robin doubled down on those aspects, and I thought it was a pretty bad movie.

    The reason the West show worked was in large part because of Adam's absolutely brilliant performance as silver age Batman. My god, he's just so fun to watch even on small clips, makes the camp really work while still giving the character respect.
    Kilmer was still riding that line of being serious Batman and Clooney just doesn't have that West charm.

    I don’t think we’ve ever had an actually bad Batman on film. All the actors have been pretty good. Clooney could’ve been wonderful with the right direction.

    In a better written and directed comedy I bet Clooney would've been a wonderful successor to Adam West.

    As it stands, the true successor to Adam West has been Will Arnett. A worthy addition to the pantheon of cinematic Batmen.

    I'd say the opposite and make the claim we've never had a bad Bruce Wayne.

    It's why the sentiment of "Bruce (the man) is the harder part of the two aliases" is a bit odd, as many can make the argument a few actors have flopped under the cowl.

    He would been a good fit if could do his own thing with someone guiding him of course. That's what I love about Marvel,its good for a writer & director to do their own thing. Just have someone who know the comics tell them maybe not this, maybe try this instead.

    Clooney really was a huge missed opportunity, he was more than capable of being brilliant as a serious or comedic Batman, I'd have loved to see what he could've done with the role in a film that was more than just a glorified toy commercial.

    I enjoyed Clooney as Batman. And the nipples never bothered me. I never noticed them until someone pointed them out.

    Brilliant.

    Aside from the brows being a bit more "detailed" than what we've seen from the teaser, this looks pretty spot on.
