You know you messed up big time when you have to apologise to audiences for a film you directed. That's exactly what Joel Schumacher ended up doing for Batman & Robin, however, and it's something that the majority of viewers probably thought was a long time coming. To this day there are still outraged fanboys to be found, on social networks and comment sections across the web, accusing him of killing the Dark Knight. Y'know, until Christopher Nolan came back and saved his life (and ours). Batman & Robin did wind up being the least successful of Warner Bros's initial attempt to bring the Caped Crusader to the big screen, but Batman Forever had managed to almost double the gross of Tim Burton's darker, more brooding Batman Returns. When Schumacher came on board he threw out the gothic atmosphere Burton loves and went full camp even more so with his second film, which saw gaudy colours all over the place, visible nipples on all of the heroes' costumes and George Clooney as Bruce Wayne admitting that he played the character gay. The Nolanverse swept all that away in a sea of serious faces and earthy browns, but things could have been very different. Just as a third film by Burton would've changed things immeasurably, so too might've a trilogy by Schumacher. The villains were in place, so was the cast, and it's closer to Nolan than you think...here are ten things you need to know about Batman Triumphant.
