It's 1999, and Warner Bros. (in assoc. with View Askew) presents Batman Again
Well, some of you have heard about my Batman Again story on my old Home Page. Well, let me, right here, answer all of your questions.

But first, to understand the future we must deconstruct the past. See, each Batman movie has a certain number of stars. Batman had 4 major stars: Michael Keaton, Jack Nicholson, Kim Basinger and Alfred. Batman Returns had 6 major stars: Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Michelle Pfieffer, Christopher Walken, Billy Dee Williams and Alfred. When Joel Schumaker took over, on Batman Forever, he brought in 8 major stars: Val Kilmer, Tommy Lee Jones, Chris O'Donnell, Jim Carrey, Drew Barrymore, Nicole Kidman, Debi Mazar and Alfred. His second time around, this year's Batman and Robin, has 10 major stars: George Clooney, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chris O'Donnell, Alica Silverstone, Uma Thurman, Elle Macpherson, Vendella, Vivica Fox, the dude playing Bane and, of course, Alfred.

Figuring the law of averages, we're looking at a record breaking 12 stars for the next Batman flick. Kind of sad. Not only is Warner Bros. running out of villians, they're also running out of actors. Here's a look at 1999's Batman Again with an all new cast:

Sad part is, it's all true. It's to be scripted by Kevin Smith (formerly of Superman Reborn) and directed by veteran Star Trek actor Michael (Lt. Worf) Dorn. Dorn has said, "It should be a more campy, 1960's feel for the new franchise." Look for Batman Again hitting screens in the summer of 1999, opposite Jurassic Park 3: Icefall, the new Star Wars: Episode One, and Disney's animated Kingdom of the Sun.
