Mon, 09/26/2016 - 06:55

Tim Burton is responsible for two of the best comic book movies of all time, or at least of the pre-superhero-overload era. And he wasn't going to end with 1989's Batman and its sequel, Batman Returns, either, having been long involved with another DC Comics adaptation, Superman Lives, until the whole project fell apart.
