For many people Michael Keaton will forever be their favourite Batman and as such it was interesting to hear him chat recently about the new incarnation of movies.
Speaking to WTF Podcast about Christopher Nolan’s take on the Caped Crusader, the Beetlejuice star said: “The guy who’s doing them now, Chris Nolan, he’s so talented, it’s crazy. [Christian Bale] is so talented. It’s so good.” he said. “But I say that like I’ve seen them, and I actually haven’t. I didn’t even see much of the second one that I did.
“You look at where he went, which is exactly what I wanted to do when I was having meetings about the third one,” he continued. “I said you want to see how this guy started. We’ve got a chance here to fix whatever we kind of maybe went off. This could be brilliant.”
Keaton left the Batman franchise after Tim Burton failed to return as director for a third film.
