Just read about this extended cut of Batman Forever. I can’t be the only one who likes this second best, of the Burton/Schumacher ones, am I? I’d love to see Two face break out and see what a mid 90s Man-Bat would have looked like.
I’ve seen the footage, and I think it would make for a somewhat better movie.
I’ve only learned of this recently but I would be happy to see it.
I’m all for seeing it.
It was actually my favorite of the 4. I would love to see a longer version…
Doesn’t look to be on the table yet…
I love Kilmer. I’d be interested in seeing this happen one day. Maybe this cut doesn’t have the Seal song in it.
I’m always interested in extended/director’s cuts of films, but it’s unfortunate Schumacher isn’t around to oversee it. Unless there’s a 100% finished version, any extended cut would be other people trying to recreated his plan from storyboards and script pages. Not that there isn’t value in that, it’s just a shame the actual director couldn’t be involved.
It really shouldn’t be all that hard to reconstruct. I mean, fans have already done so with far fewer resources. It seems like a quick, cheap way to offer “new” content on Max, so maybe their desperation for something that doesn’t have to be newly filmed will help Seal the deal.
And hell, I’d give it a watch. The deleted scenes I’ve seen in the past look pretty cool, could definitely help flesh out the story that’s there.
The question is does the version he turned in still exist as he turned it in? If so, it would be his original vision and easy to prepare.
Forget the Snyder Cut of Justice League (2021)! The Schumacher Cut of Batman Forever (1995) is where it’s at!
I’d buy an extended cut of Batman Forever.
HBO Max is a great platform to try it unless they make a special directors cut Blu-ray, 4 k edition. I would buy it
Batman Forever is fine “as-is” and is completely in line, tonally, with Burton’s films.
This might be interesting as a fan-project, but there’s no reason - either financially or creatively - to create a Director’s Cut for the movie.
