Joel Schumacher: 'Val Kilmer was the best Batman'
"For me, Val Kilmer was the best Batman," Schumacher, the director of " Batman Forever" and " Batman & Robin" tells IFC.com. "I thought he looked great in the costume, and I thought he brought a depth to the role. I thought the relationship between Val and Nicole Kidman was very sexy."
Schumacher admitted fault when it came to the universally-panned "Batman & Robin," a film that underperformed at the box office and stalled the franchise for eight years.
"It's not my favorite movie I've ever made...I take full responsibility for 'Batman & Robin'," he says. He adds, "I broke a rule of mine, which is never to do a sequel of anything."
Probably a decent philosophy. Also pick movies with decent scripts.
