BATMAN & ROBIN Director Joel Schumacher Returning To Gotham?!

BATMAN & ROBIN Director Joel Schumacher Returning To Gotham?!

According to the website, bleedingcool.com, Batman Forever and Batman & Robin director Joel Schumacher is returning to the world of Gotham. Come check it out.

While director Joel Schumacher ("The Lost Boys") was shooting 1997's ill-fated Batman & Robin, Warner Bros. looked at the dailies and were positive they had another hit on their hands so they began planning a third Batman film with Schumacher at the helm. Its tentative title was Batman: Triumphant and it was written by screenwriter Mark Protosevich.

The plot: "The Joker would return as a hallucination in Batman's mind caused by the Scarecrow's fear toxin. Harley Quinn appeared as a supporting character, written as the Joker's daughter trying to get revenge on Batman for the Joker's death." - batman.wikia

When Batman & Robin failed to beat the previous Batman films at the box office Warner Bros. cancelled those plans, and the franchise would later be rebooted by Christopher Nolan ("Batman Begins"). Now it appears that Schumacher would like to tell his true vision of Batman and will do so via comic books.
Because Bleeding Cool has been told that Joel Schumacher is writing a twelve issue Batman comic, currently being drawn by Dustin Nguyen, which will revisit his intentions for the three films, or which two were made. Rewritten from scratch and telling one story, this will contain his original vision for the movies. Expect an announcement when more of the scripts are in…

Chills and thrills: will Gotham City be put on ice? George Clooney is Batman as the dark knight battles his greatest threat yet: cold-hearted Mr. Freeze (Schwarzenegger) and venomous Poison Ivy (Thurman). Batman has more than Gotham City to protect: the youthful eagerness of crimefighting comrades Robin (O'Donnell) and Batgirl (Silversone) puts them frequently in harm's way.

Batman & Robin (1997) was directed by Joel Schumacher, from a script written by Akiva Goldsman. The film starred: Arnold Schwarzenegger as Dr. Victor Fries/Mr. Freeze, George Clooney as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Chris O'Donnell as Dick Grayson/Robin, Uma Thurman as Dr. Pamela Isley/Poison Ivy, Alicia Silverstone as Barbara Wilson/Batgirl, Michael Gough as Alfred Pennyworth, Pat Hingle as Commissioner James Gordon, Elle Macpherson as Julie Madison, Vivica A. Fox as Ms. B. Haven, and Vendela Kirsebom as Nora Fries.
