Q. O.K., let’s talk about “Batman & Robin.” You were successful with “Batman Forever,” but that sequel derailed the whole franchise until Christopher Nolan came in to revive it.

A. I’d had such a string of successes. You kind of think, like, wow, I’m hitting these balls out of the park every time. And I felt I was making quality films, and so I think I didn’t have passion to do “Batman & Robin.” I think I was paid a lot of money, and we were supporting the Warner Brothers stores, and so I felt like my job was very corporate for the first time in my life. I think it still made a fortune and stuff sold and all of that, and I blame no one else but myself — a Joel Schumacher film. The buck stops right here.


I dunno if I can ever forgive him for putting nipples on Batman and calling it "children's entertainment".

Can you?
