    keaton batman movies

    in Movies

    back in summer of 89 the biggest movie came out it was call batman which start keaton as batman and jack as the prince of clown the joker. it became the biggest hit of summer of 89 and then in 92 batman returns came out. this time with danny devito as the penquin and michelle as the catwoman. who in my eyes will always be catwoman no one can top on what she did. but i didn't like is how they made the penquin look in the movie a freak instead short man who wears top hats and wears black and white tuxedos and got the nickname the penquin. but when jack play the joker the line that stold the movie. ''have u ever dance with the devil under the pale moon light.'' when he ask u that u where dead. both movies became a hit but keaton didn't return to do batman forever or batman and robin. cause tim burton wasn't making them. cause the idea was that robin williams was going be the riddler for batman forever and what people don't know is that billy dee williams was havery dent in the 89 batman movie and he wanted to come back to play two-face. but the role went to tommy lee jones. now i would love to see billy dee williams as two-face that would been awesome. to me the true batman movies are the keatons cause they stay true to the core of batman. on who he is and what he is a crime fighters and dective. but when the movie came out in 89 the singer prince did the whole soundtrack to the movie but the score is what drew u in. when batman march play u knew u where in the ride of your life. also other know fact robin batman sidekick was going be in the movie and be play by micheal j fox but burton didn't want a robin in his movies. this was batman fighting crime in gotham not with a sidekick. but like i said the true batman movies are keatons not nolan.

    batman villains in movies

    in Movies

    when the big buget batman movie came out in the summer of 89 no one knew what kind of ride they where in for. micheal keaton as batman and jack as the joker and made so much money at the box office and even won oscars. so batman returns came and this time danny devito as penquin and michelle as the catwoman. but people said that one was dark and wasn't a batman movie they wanted to take there kids to. but here the thing batman is dark and so are the villains. so warner bothers want do some more batman movies but make more comic book so when val kilmer suite up as batman they brought in two-face and the riddler. tommy lee jones as harvey dent aka two-face and jim carrey as the riddler. but then they brought in chris as dick grayson aka robin in the third movie cause the kids wanted robin in a movie cause of the cartoons where been showing at the time in the 90's. so when batman and robin came out this time the villains where mr freeze play by famous body builder arnold as mr freeze and uma as posion ivy. but here the thing though that alot people don't know that former wwe superstar jeep swenson play bane. now all the movies where hits cause of the villains in the movies and how the actor and actress play them. the only one that people really didn't like was batman and robin. cause they said that kill the movies. but i like it. the way jack play the joker u can't beat that. and jim carrey as the riddler he was awesome that was the part for him. but when nolan did his version of these villains he made them to real. like a guy paint his face dye his hair green and wears purple suite and calls himself the joker. but don't get me wrong heath ledger was a good joker. but with the reboot of the movies let see who plays them today for the reboots and now with the new 52 of dc comics let see what happens with them.
