Trivia

Between the Tim Burton/Joel Schumacher series and the Christopher Nolan series, this is the only Batman sequel directed by the same director in which Batman/Bruce Wayne is recast with a different actor (due to fact that in the previous film, Batman Forever (1995), also directed by Schumacher, the role was played by Val Kilmer, whereas in this film, he is played by George Clooney). The only characters whose actors from the previous film returned to this one are Robin/Dick Grayson (Chris O'Donnell), Alfred (Michael Gough) and Commissioner Gordon (Pat Hingle). Michael Keaton played Batman in Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992), which were directed by Burton and Christian Bale took over for Batman Begins (2005), The Dark Knight (2008) and The Dark Knight Rises (2012), which were directed by Nolan.

Ummm....The original Batman (1989) was cool...
11 August 2000 | by (St. Louis, Missouri) – See all my reviews

I understand what Schumacher tried to do with this movie...it seems like a giant comic book, but...oh, hell...the movie is horrible. I don't think I've seen such bad performances in my entire life. I wasn't only disappointed by this movie, but mildly insulted that something like this was supposed to be a blockbuster at one point; yeah guys, maybe if we were all five. Whatever happened to the original Batman? Michael Keaton and Kim Bassinger? Yeah, see, back in the good old days, good comic book adaptation movies were made. Batman and Robin is TO BE AVOIDED LIKE THE PLAGUE
