    Notes[edit | hide]

    Cancelled Projects[edit | hide]

    • Despite his initial willingness to return to his portrayal of Batman in the sequel to Batman Returns, Batman Forever, Michael Keaton eventually decided against it due to issues with the different tone envisaged by director Joel Schumacher, and the role was instead given to Val Kilmer.[7] Despite the recast, both Batman Forever and its sequel, Batman & Robin, were initially still said to take place within the same continuity as Keaton's portrayal. However, this decision was later retconned through various creator statements, and those films are now stated to take place in a separate universe called Earth-97.[8][9][3]
    • In the decades following Keaton's portrayal of Batman, numerous attempts were made by employees at DC to create a comic book series set within the same continuity as the Tim Burton films.[10] One such attempt was the original concept to the later reworked Batman '89 comic, created by Joe Quinones ad Kate Leth.[11]
    • During Walter Hamada's tenure as Head of DC Films, it was planned that Michael Keaton's portayal of Batman would be the main version within the DC Extended Universe following the reboot of its timeline during Flashpoint. This would have entailed appearances by Keaton in both Batgirl,[12] as well as in a Batman Beyond film. However, these plans were abruptly scrapped following the appointment of James Gunn and Peter Safran as co-heads of DC Films, in favour of developing the new DC Universe.[13]
