It’s interesting that the finale of Christopher Nolan‘s Dark Knight trilogy will be making its debut this summer, and so will Tim Burton‘s film reboot of Dark Shadows, given that Batman was once Burton’s baby. Some fans will tell you Burton’s run was better than Nolan’s, others will say that Nolan kicks ass and the rest are just plain stupid.
Well, what does Burton have to say about this, himself?
I always get told that my material is dark, but nowadays my version of Batman looks like a lighthearted romp in comparision to Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight.
Although he didn’t go into much detail, this is a pretty powerful comment because we all know what Burton’s style is like.
He also talked a bit about Michelle Pfieffer‘s portrayal of Catwoman back in the day. Not gonna lie, Anne Hathaway has some HUGE heels to fill.
For me, her version of Catwoman was one of my favourite performances on any movie I had worked on. I remember how she impressed me by letting a live bird fly out of her mouth, learning how to use a whip and dancing around on rooftops with high-heeled shoes on. She did all that stuff for real. I hadn’t really talked to her for about 20 years, and she called before I had started working on Dark Shadows, and she told me how much she loved the old TV series and she wanted to be involved.
As my cousin said to me today, “The Dark Knight Rises is going to be life changing.”
