Tim Burton’s Batman opened 25 years ago today and changed superhero movies forever. Watch the 1988 Batman preview video sent out to assure distributors the movie didn’t suck

It’s hard to imagine now, but in the late 80s, superhero movies weren’t something to be taken seriously, especially Batman. The 1970s had a run of really goofy, really cheap Marvel TV movies and the public’s main perception of Batman was from the campy 1966 series. So in 1988, Warner Bros made this preview video to show that their Batman film was a brand new thing and not a film adaptation of Adam West’s Batman. 

Michael Keaton in early talks with Tim Burton to do Beetlejuice 2

While the project is still in its very early stages, during a Robocop press junket, Michael Keaton admitted he and Tim Burton are in talks to do Beetlejuice 2. Keaton had said he would only do it if Burton was involved, so hopefully this will move forward with a quickness. As awesome as it would be to have others from the original involved, it would be total wishful speculation at this point to say who’s in and who’s not.

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.

This one was how Jack Nicholson came to be cast as The Joker
In 1980, while scheming a silver screen pitch, Michael Uslan, the man who bought the rights to “Batman,” came across a promotional image of Nicholson’s character from “The Shining” in the New York Post… Uslan painted over the image with whiteout and transformed Nicholson’s furious features into that of the clownish villain.

Is it a good effort by Burton, or should it have been left chained and buried in a shallow grave?

Check out the first trailer for Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows

At first, I wasn’t really looking forward to Tim Burton’s film adaptation of the 1960s Dark Shadows TV series. I never saw the original series, but at first, I got the impression that Dark Shadows would be another interchangeable Tim Burton/Johnny Depp joint, but this actually looks pretty funny and entertaining. I think now I’ll be really looking forward to this when it comes out in May.
