Michael Keaton Explains Why He Left Batman, and Why His Bruce Wayne Was ‘Right On’
For a lot of young folks, Michael Keaton is their first introduction to a cinematic Batman, his version of the Caped Crusader in Tim Burton’s 1989 movie still considered one of the most lauded and fun interpretations of Bruce Wayne to this day. But even the best actors need to know when to call it quits, and Keaton recently explained what drove him to say no to Batman 3.

The Danny Elfman Batman Score Works Perfectly in the ‘Justice League’ Trailer
The announcement that Danny Elfman will replace Junkie XL as the composer of Justice League is one of the first concrete signs of the shift in direction following the departure of Zack Snyder and his replacement by Joss Whedon. Frankly, we were excited by the news. Elfman’s a great composer, with plenty of experience writing music for superhero movies; he composed the music for Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man, Ang Lee’s Hulk, and Guillermo del Toro’s Hellboy II: The Golden Army.
‘Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children’ Trailer: Tim Burton’s Latest Creepy Quirkfest
‘Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children’ Trailer: Tim Burton’s Latest Creepy Quirkfest
Ender’s Game sputtered out and he didn’t land the role of Marvel’s new Spider-Man, so Asa Butterfield’s latest stab at franchise immortality will come in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. Based on a best-selling novel by Ransom Riggs, the premise is sort of a Tim Burton spin on X-Men, with a house of strange and quirkily gifted children who live apart from society that doesn’t understand their abilities. And, yes, if this movie is a hit, Riggs has already written two Miss Peregrine sequels, Hollow City and Library of Souls. In other words, there’s nothing peculiar about Hollywood’s interest in this material.

A Trip Inside Beetle House, New York’s Spooky Tim Burton–Themed Restaurant
I’m a sucker for themed food and drinks, especially when it comes to movies. I once cooked a Louisiana-style feast with a friend around ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild,’ served hamburgers and Sunny-D for a group screening of ‘Juno,’ and crepes for one of ‘Midnight in Paris.’ So it only made sense that I jumped at the opportunity to check out the new Tim Burton-themed restaurant with a group of fellow film writers on Monday night.

With their new Cinderella just days away, Disney is continuing its streak of turning its animated classics into live-action features with the news, via the Wall Street Journal, that Dumbo is ready to make the transition from animated elephant to ... well, still-animated elephant surrounded by live-action actors. If that idea doesn’t get your ears flapping, maybe this will: the Journal says Tim Burton will be the man who’ll direct the new Dumbo.

Supercut Proves We’ve Seen Batman’s Parents Die Quite a Lot
Just how many times have we watched a young Bruce Wayne witness the murder of his parents? No origin story for the Caped Crusader has been without it, and FOX's Batman prequel series, 'Gotham,' is no different. As the new drama premiered this week, kicking off with the brutal death of Mr. and Mrs. Wayne, a new supercut has hit the web of all the time's we've seen this scene onscreen -- and it's quite a number of times.

‘The Death of Superman Lives’ Trailer: See Nicolas Cage (Almost) Play the Man of Steel
Once upon a time, Nicolas Cage almost played Superman. In a movie directed by Tim Burton. From a script by Kevin Smith. Which was based on the iconic "Death of Superman" comic book storyline. And then it all fell apart, transforming it into one of Hollywood's greatest "What if?" narratives. 'Superman Lives' may have died before making it in front of cameras, but at least the new documentary 'The Death of Superman Lives' will give us an insider's look at what went wrong.
