Already posted this at the Comic Book Resources forums but I thought I'd ask this question here and see what you guys think! "After Batman Returns, there was talk of Burton directed the next film that would have had both the Riddler(which Robin Williams was lobbied for the part) and Two-Face(played by Billy Dee Williams reprising his role from the first film) as villains, Robin being introduced possibly played by Marlon Wayans, Bruce getting a new lovey dovey played by Rene Russo, and the possible return of Catwoman. However, once Warner Bros. found out that Burton's next Batman film would have the same dark and melancholy as the last one, Burton was then booted as director and replaced with Joel Schumacher which lead to the less-than-perfect Batman Forever which lead to the unspeakable and godawful box office bomb known as Batman and Robin with bat nipples, ice puns, and bat credit cards galore! It took Warner Bros. many years, through many pitches for a new film, to successfully restart the franchise with the Christopher Nolan-directed Batman Begins followed by the critically acclaimed Dark Knight trilogy. Now, this got me thinking......what would have happened if Warner Bros. had allowed Tim Burton to direct more films about Batman? Now keep in mind of the time that these movies were coming out, which actors were popular and younger at the time, and which comics were being released by DC Comics. If Tim Burton had directed more Batman films, what do you guys think Burton would have done? Even when thinking about the planned third film, how do you would he have perceived characters such as Robin, Batgirl, Riddler, Two-Face, Mr. Freeze, Poison Ivy, Bane, Scarecrow, and many others allies and villains? What kind of developments could Michael Keaton's Bruce Wayne would have gone through? What would you have liked the other characters to be involved with and/or be introduced?" Now, keep in mind that these questions are only centered towards people who are a fan of Burton's vision of Batman so I'd appreciate not turning this thread into a bashing thread towards Burton's films.
