Michael Keaton recently did an interview on the WTF With Marc Maron podcast, where he briefly discussed what he wanted to do for the next Batman movie after "Batman Returns." Here's what he had to say about not only his third Batman movie, but also about what he thinks of Chris Nolan's Batman movies:
“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. But I say that like I’ve seen them, and I actually haven’t. I didn’t even see…

There are graphic novels that I can't remember as well as I remember this one. The level of storytelling, especially through the use of the media in Gotham City. The animated film of Frank Miller’s redefinition and reemergence of the Batman as a gritty, tough, even sadistic version of his former self. However, make no mistake loyal Bat-fans. Bruce is old. Too old to be out swinging over rooftops. Or so we think. He still has the edge, but most importantly, he scares criminals more than ever…

Big thank you to Dustin, and everyone at TheBatmanUniverse.net for two tickets to see Batman: Live at my chosen venue, The Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC) in Glasgow on August the 3rd of this year, which was the opening night, for Batman: Live here in Glasgow.

When Tim Burton was tapped for the second Batman film, he spoke with Michael Keaton and they both agreed that they had already discovered everything about Batman, with the first film. The studio persisted, and Tim's itch for Gotham had clearly not left him. And the result is a much darker Batman than even the first film captured.This one broke new ground that most Batman films still have not. This is a unique interpretation that cannot be duplicated. Tim Burton’s visual style…

The sequel to Batman Begins blew us all away. The first of this new re-invention of the Caped Crusader and his never-ending war on crime was a modest film, but whetted our appetite for more. The set up brought us an incredible buildup for the second film that many of us Bat-fans would not have guessed was possible. An incredible teaser campaign began, with nothing more than the sound of Mr. Heath Ledger’s terrifying voice as…
