Michael Keaton has revealed why he ended his career as the Dark Knight, THR reports. This compared to Schumacher's glitzy, colorful and zany couple of Batman movies.
Michael Keaton gave a very succinct answer when asked by an interviewer as to why he decided not to do a third Batman movie. After Burton and Keaton worked hard to create a gothic and psychologically intriguing version of the Caped Crusader, Schumacher plunged the franchise into a camp travesty of punny proportions, complete with plastic nipples and cartoony villains. Michael Keaton: bullet dodger. Though Keaton acknowledges taking the role could be seen as an embarrassing move - as viewers might think the movie was about his career - it ultimately landed him an Oscar nod for best actor and a win for best picture in 2015.
Affleck is also down to direct and star in a stand-alone movie, The Batman, but, like Keaton before him, he's having second thoughts about portraying the comic book hero again.

It's easy to look back on Batman Forever with cynicism, but upon re-watching, it becomes clear that the first film without Keaton in the Bat-suit isn't half as bad as you recall. Burton's films are still reverred today and it was thanks to the brighter tone of the next two ('Forever" and "Batman & Robin') that the world got Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy.
