Justice League hits theaters this coming weekend, bringing us Ben Affleck‘s take on Batman again as he rounds up the DC Comics superhero team on the big screen for the first time ever. But it was a long road to get here with a couple sizeable speed bumps courtesy of director Joel Schumacher.
After Batman Returns got a little too dark, gothic and kinky for parents taking their kids to see the new Batman movie, Warner Bros. dulled things down by shifting into a more ludicrous gear with Batman Forever. Watch as Honest Trailers takes on the beginning of the end of the 1990s era of Batman, including Bat nipples and a perpetually open-mouthed Val Kilmer.

1995 doesn’t feel like it was so very long ago. If you were alive in that era, you probably still remember oohing and ahhing over Toy Story‘s CG-animated surfaces for the very first time, or meeting a brand new 007 in Pierce Brosnan. But in fact, you are wrong. 1995 really was that long ago. At least we still have some favorites of the era to take us back. Even if we’re now streaming them on iTunes instead of popping them into our VCRs.
We’re not saying these are the best films of 1995 — that’s a conversation for another time — but these are the ones that stuck with us. Some because they’ve become reliable favorites, some because they still feel remarkably fresh, and others because they’re so hilariously 1995, they couldn’t possibly have been made at any other time. Join us in revisiting 20 films turning 20 in 2015 after the jump.

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 »
