Joel Schumacher wanted to make The Dark Knight with Nic Cage as The Scarecrow
Batman & Robin director Joel Schumacher has claimed he wanted to make a Dark Knight style follow-up to the Batman film even Batman says is terrible.
But Warner Brothers liked the Batman & Robin dailies so much (HOW?) they tasked Schumacher with making a fifth film, presumably starring Clooney, entitled Batman Triumphant.
“I was supposed to do a fifth one” Schumacher said. “I was talking to Nic Cage about playing the Scarecrow. I had begged the studio for The Dark Knight but they wanted a family friendly, toyetic thing.”
