‘Batman & Robin’: Joel Schumacher Apologizes To Fans!
There have been many Batman films through the years. Some were winners, while others, end up being used for memes, and the butt of jokes. Batman & Robin might fall somewhere in between. The film had a stellar cast, including George Clooney, Uma Thurman, and even Arnold Shwarzenegger! The film is coming up on it’s 20 year anniversary.
Director Joel Schumacher has recently apologized for the film, due to the sub par reception it got from fans.
Look, I apologize. I want to apologize to every fan that was disappointed because I think I owe them that.
Schumacher also went on to talk about how audiences have changed between when his film was released, and now.
What’s interesting to me is if you see Tim [Burton’s] and my version, you can see how innocent viewers were back then. It’s really interesting to me, because if you see Tim’s and my [films], you’d understand how innocent the audience was back then when it demanded to have more of a family-friendly Batman. Then when you see Christopher Nolan’s trilogy, the last one especially where he’s dealing with real class and economic problems, you see how the audience has changed in the fact that they can accept and want darker and darker subject matter.
The audiences have certainly changed, but there will always be a crowd you can’t please. While not every Batman movie may have been a winner, we wouldn’t be where we are today with them without the trial and error.
