“I remember one of the things that I walked away going, ‘Oh boy, I can’t do this’. [Joel Schumacher] asked me, ‘I don’t understand why everything has to be so dark and everything so sad,’ and I went, ‘Wait a minute, do you know how this guy got to be Batman? Have you read… I mean, it’s pretty simple.’”

We know the story: Schumacher went on to make two of his own Batman movies, 1995’s Batman Forever and 1997’s Batman & Robin, which…aren’t remembered quite as fondly as the Burton films these days.

Of course, Keaton has been vocal in the past about what he’d hoped to do with the character had he done “Batman III,” and it sounds a lot like what Christopher Nolan did with the Dark Knight Trilogy.

“[Star Christian Bale] is so talented. It’s so good…. You look at where he went, which is exactly what I wanted to do when I was having meetings about the third one,” Keaton revealed on Marc Maron’s WTF Podcast in 2013. “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!’”

But Scumacher’s ideas for Batman III weren’t the only reasons he backed out of Gotham City. Keaton explained to The Jess Cagle Podcast that he also disliked some of the mandatory publicity that came with the role.

“At some point, you’re a jerk if you don’t go [to conventions]. This is a legitimate world. You’re no better or worse than this, but I’m naïve,” he said.
