The process of developing
20 November 2007 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

After the first part told us of the struggle to get the film made, this deals with the development of it. They talk about the response to Keaton(who is a lot more stoic than one might expect from a comedic actor) being cast, the impact of getting Nicholson(who talks about playing The Joker, and what he thinks of the character), and more. Tim's importance is also mentioned. The many interview clips include words from all three, as well as Michael Gough, who played Alfred, the faithful butler(in all four films, no less). Uslan appears again, cementing the fact that he is a fan of comics. Almost all of the major actors get some interview time, if not necessarily very much(although I don't know that they have too little). Some of them comment on Burton as a director(Hingle is particularly entertaining... and Gough's words are interesting). The media and their responses are mentioned. Sean Young is mentioned, and she talks about not being in the film. The special is well-paced, coming in at just about 23 minutes, it's interesting throughout. I recommend this to any fan of the actors, the character, the film, and/or anyone who wants to know more about the creative process, in particular for this film. 7/10
