Michael Keaton wanted to do a Batman Begins style third Batman movie

After doing Batman in 1989 and Batman Returns in 1992, Michael Keaton was all about doing a third Batman film, but he and Tim Burton wanted to do a thorough Batman origin story along the lines of Batman Begins. When the project was handed to Joel Schumacher, Keaton could smell the stink from 10 miles away and decided not to return to the Bat-cave.

Speaking on the WTF podcast [via The Playlist], Keaton said:

“The guy who’s doing them now, Chris Nolan, he’s so talented, it’s crazy. [Christian Bale] is so talented. It’s so good.” he enthused. “But I say that like I’ve seen them, and I actually haven’t. I didn’t even see much of the second one that I did.”

“You look at where he went, which is exactly what I wanted to do when I was having meetings about the third one,” he continued. “I said you want to see how this guy started. We’ve got a chance here to fix whatever we kind of maybe went off. This could be brilliant.”

“I knew we were in trouble in talks for the third one when certain people started the conversation with ‘Why does it have to be so dark?’ ‘Why does he have to be so depressed?’ ‘Shouldn’t there be more color in this thing?’ I knew I was headed for trouble and that it wasn’t a road I was going to go down.”
