I know he gets a lot of flack but he seems like a really nice guy and has directed plenty of great films.

Edit : Just heard he passed away, RIP to Joel. One of the men that helped me get into Batman.

This man just passed away, my condolences to all his dear ones
16:32 i totally agree with Schumacher, he's not trying to make the next Casablanca, just an entertaining batman movie.
I could listen to him talk for hours, so witty and wise. His Batman films made my childhood so much brighter and funnier. Shame he got lambasted by fanboys and critics.
Great interview, for all his miss fires, I still have respect for this man and the several films he made which were really solid. Also love hearing his thoughts on the critics vs audiences.
Joe Schumacher kicks ass?! until this day, he's still my filmmaking hero...thank you Joel

I loved the film when I was a kid, especially it's Climax, when Batman has to choose between saving his girlfriend and his sidekick, but instead, he makes his own Riddle and destroys The Riddler's machine. Rest in Peace.
RIP Joel Schumacher.
Miss the 90's

Cool thanks Joel Schumacher forever thanks for the 25-30 years of storytelling from the legendary late legacy of Bob Kane whoever passed on at 83,1998 rip buddy now your characters are better than ever thanks buddy peace and blessings to you thanks.
I like how at the end it got more and more aggressive xD I agree with both of their opinions, can't say if any of them is wrong.

I’ve always respected Joel Schumacher as a director, and I do appreciate how he grew up a Batman fan and a comic reader. I believe Schumacher could have made one of the best Batman films if WB gave him more creative freedom, rather than want to make toys. I think Joel tried not to diss on Warner when the movies were coming out, cause after he wasn’t afraid to share how WB really treated his vision

As a die hard fan of Tim Burtons Batman and Batman Returns. I have to say i absolutely love Joel Schumachers Batman Forever. Not as much love for Batman and Robin though.

I can imagine if he manage to do a 1999 Batman with Robin and Batgirl
And with Scarecrow with the main antagonist or maybe Clayface or Killer Croc
And yeah I know about the Batman Began Scarecrow

I just like to see this director's version of Scarecrow
Oliver Hernandez
Oliver Hernandez:
I don’t know like the Batman forever and Batman and Robin movies weren’t that bad

Such a good movie. It's reminiscent of the Adam West Batman. It's colorful, funny, wacky, and so much fun. I've seen it 40+ times over the years. I'll never get tired of it.

I'm glad Keaton didn't continue on as Batman. Joel's take was stylistically different and in tone different than Burton's, and so it would seem odd to have the same actor playing Batman. Keaton was best left to Batman and Batman returns. Kilmer was a good choice, but to be honest, out of those four Batman movies, I only like the first one, Batman.

Alex J:
The fact that money and tickets are being mentioned throughout the entire interview, it’s very clear to me that this movie was made for money. Period. I’ve seen this movie many times and it has certain moments here and there that are ok. It’s simply for kids. The problem is the artistry wasn’t there for Batman Forever. It’s very dumbed down with flat characters. I don’t like Joel’s attitude towards the Batman project. He fails to have great passion for the character and was just in it for the buck. There is a story, there is action but you can’t take it seriously and it’s toned down to the level of being a family movie with a lot of quirky aesthetics. I’m so happy someone like Chris Nolan came around and created something special and loves the character of Batman. That’s the mark of a good director through his intelligence and passion. Not someone who says, “This is a comic book movie.”, and fails to broaden his perspective of treating this as a film, instead of a cheesy popcorn movie with spectacle and no essence.
