A few new details in the on-screen history and future of Batman have been revealed this week. First up, Michael Keaton is out promoting his new superhero film Birdman and is answering lots of questions about his iconic role as the Caped Crusader in Tim Burton‘s films. He said the reason he didn’t do Batman Forever is because the studio didn’t appreciate the character in the way he did. But he said that he would play the character again — under one condition.

Also, producer Charles Roven (who did all of Christopher Nolan’s Batman films, as well as Man of Steel and the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) revealed Ben Affleck was everyone’s first choice to play the character in the new film. Even Christopher Nolan had an opinion on the casting. Read the Michael Keaton Batman Forever quote and more below. Read More »
