    How would it have been different from Schumacher's? (aside from their differing styles of film-making, of course...)

    Do you think Burton would have included Two-Face and the Riddler?
    Would Billy Dee Williams have played Two-Face and how would his Two-Face differ from Jones'?
    Would Michael Keaton have returned to play Bats?

    So many questions...

    Marlon Wayans would have been terrible.

    I agree. O'Donnell wasn't exactly the crown jewel of the Schumacher era, but he's a helluva better choice for Robin. I think thats mostly because, as it said in the article, Burton hated Robin.

    I doubt since Burton would have never used Robin.

    i always had an idea that they could do an animated batman 3. burton would come and direct. (he loves animation anyways) keaton won't have to play Batman he can just voice him. and they could create a story using riddler and two-face. robins and williams can voice them. i think it has alot of potential.

    I'd love that, but I doubt it would happen. But, it would kick so much ass to see Burton's vision of The Riddler and Two-Face in animation (probably stop-motion?) I'd love it.
    Perhaps Warner Bros. could get him back to do one of the DC Universe DTV films and work with Bruce Timm...

    Stop motion animation of Tim Burton's Batman 3 would be the coolest thing ever. Wow that is the coolest idea I've heard in a while! Maybe Corpse Bride style animation too..

    Wasn't Corpse Bride stop motion? Or was it a mix of Stop motion and CG?

    thanks guys, i had this idea for a while now. we know that burton didn't have the best time making these films. but he loves animation, and therefore he could enjoy this more. just imagine the same style of the set design of gotham and the fashion style continued in this movie. it would have to be very cinematic to match the tone of the first two films. create a new plot, script, cast billy dee and williams as the two-face and riddler (and we don't have to worry about age) and you get the film that the fans have been aching for.

    If Tim made a stop-motion Batman I'd rather see Clayface and Scarecrow

    Well, I was more thinking of Timm (and maybe Paul Dini) fleshing out Tim Burton's ideas for Batman 3 into a full script and having Burton direct the animation.

    Also, if this was going to happen, Michelle Pheiffer could return as Catwoman because, if I remember correctly, Catwoman might have returned in the 3rd, if Burton had done it.

    I'd definately like seeing Catwoman in Burton's stop-motion style.

    You guys all judge him just because he was in scary movie and a bunch of other movies

    Have u seen REqueim for a dream or Lady Killers?

    I noticed a bunch of people on these forums think anyone that is black and does comedy is usually a bad actor by assumption its quite pitiful but hey this website is filled with ignorant jerks

    Whilst I cannot say that there are no racist people on these forums, and I am sure there are. I dont think it is a fair assumption to accuse someone of being racist purely from not liking Marlon Wayans. I dont like him, not because he is black, but because he is a poor actor, I have not seen anything credible from him and I thought he was the worst actor in Ladykillers.

    I personally think Billy Dee would have been great as Two Face, he has the charm and the acting skills to pull it off.
    I just think that Burton would not have pulled off the character though, Harvey was not an integral character in B89 and BR and I dont know if the empathy towards his downward spiral would have worked as it should.

    However this is just speculation and we will never know how good or bad it could have been.

    What the hell? You're TOTALLY wrong. Some people even wanted black actors for the Dark Knight...Just because Two-Face is white in the comics, doesn't mean that comic book fans would be devastated to hear he was black in a movie. The Two-Face character isnt iconic enough to HAVE to be a white male with brown hair. Hell, even Aaron Eckhart was a departure from the comics. And people loved him and accepted him as Harvey Dent/Two Face. So you sir, are wrong
