Tim Burton says his Batman films ‘lighthearted romp’ compared to ‘Dark Knight Rises’

After “Beetlejuice” Tim Burton adapted one of the most iconic heroes in comic books with his massive hit “Batman” in 1989. This summer will feature another Batman film, the conclusion of a trilogy, presented by director Christopher Nolan. Now the “Dark Shadows” director offers accolades for the Nolan films.

 

Speaking in the new Cinemax magazine, Burton confessed that he always thought his Batman movies were the darkest until he saw Nolan’s incarnation.

“I always get told that my material is dark, but nowadays my version of Batman looks like a lighthearted romp in comparison to Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight.”

Burton also compared Michelle Pfeiffer to Anne Hathaway in their portrayals of Catwoman, of course praising the “Batman Returns” actress.

“For me, her version of Catwoman was one of my favorite 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.”

Michelle Pfeiffer openly admitted she’s excited to see Hathaway’s Catwoman in “Rises” and joked about not stealing one of those “Batman Returns” costumes.

“The Dark Knight Rises” opens in theaters on July 20th, while Burton reunites with Pfeiffer on the “Dark Shadows” film, which debuts on May 11th.
