  • "I’d think it’d be good. I do. ...I’m not at all surprised. That’s a really good cast and he’s a really good director. I would think it probably is good. I don’t see that many movies frankly."
  • "No, he's a really, really good actor. He knows what to do, and all those actors are really good. It's got a great cast and a really great director… I think they're in good shape."
  • "I was familiar with the TV show, but I didn’t know the whole comic, the pulpy part of it."
  • "He’s ridiculously depressed. He’s a vigilante. He’s got this issue…"
  • "The guy who’s doing them now, Chris Nolan, he’s so talented, it’s crazy. But I say that like I’ve seen them, and I actually haven’t. I didn’t even see much of the second one that I did."
  • "You look at where he [Nolan] went, which is exactly what I wanted to do when I was having meetings about the third one. I said you want to see how this guy started. We’ve got a chance here to fix whatever we kind of maybe went off. This could be brilliant. Didn’t want to do it, so I didn’t want to do it."
  • "He’s going to be great. I don’t follow it much, but I guess there was some sort of… I don’t know why people get excited about things. Frankly, I don’t understand it."
  • "No [I'm not jealous]. Do you know why? Because I’m Batman. I’m very secure in that."
  • "Just how efficient it is, in the best sense, and how it operates on a practical level. How organized they are about what they make and how conscientious they are about what they have. They’ve got really wonderful actors for one thing, but I guess that has always been the case. Batman always had great actors surrounding that character. We had Pat Hingle and all these terrific actors. They really get that script is important, and they really protect their lore and that culture and they see the enormity of it, on a capitalistic level."
  • "Let me simplify it for you: it sucked. The script was never good, I didn't understand why he wanted to do what he wanted to do, and I knew it was in trouble when he said, "Why does everything have to be so dark?""
