Batman & Robin Director Publicly Apologizes For Making The Movie
Batman & Robin director Joel Schumacher has apologized for making one of the most criticized superhero movies ever.
Talking to Vice, he reflected on filming the picture to mark its 20th anniversary and couldn't be more sorry for it.
"Look, I apologize. I want to apologize to every fan that was disappointed because I think I owe them that," he said.
Schumacher noted that after Batman Forever, he just knew not to make a sequel, but since Warner Bros wanted him to and he was coming off a run of successful movies, he went for it anyway.
"I never planned on being, that dreadful quote, 'a blockbuster king' because my other films were much smaller and had just found success with the audience and not often with the critics, which is really why we wrote them," he explained.
"And then after Batman & Robin, I was scum. It was like I had murdered a baby."
