Joel Schumacher wasn’t on board, apparently, so Keaton gave up and went on with his life (a good decision, from today’s point of view). Keaton also mentioned that he hasn’t seen any of the new Batman films, except for bits and pieces of The Dark Knight, which I personally found a little eye-popping, »
