A new report has revealed that Michael Keaton tried to “block” Michelle Pfeiffer’s casting in Tim Burton’s Batman films.
Michelle Pfeiffer was originally the top choice to play Batman’s love interest Vicki Vale the first Tim Burton film. Unfortunately for her, Batman actor Michael Keaton blocked her casting in the movie. If another cast member is to be believed, this was due to their past relationship.
According to actor Robert Wuhl, who played a journalist in the film, Michelle Pfeiffer had previously dated Michael Keaton and the two had broken up. At the time of the production of the 1989 Batman film, Michael Keaton was trying to get back together with his ex-wife and was firmly against Michelle Pfeiffer’s casting as a result. Apparently, this resulted in producer Jon Peters getting involved :
“Keaton and Michelle Pfeiffer had previously dated and broken up. At the time, Michael told me he was trying to get back with his ex-wife. Keaton was firmly, and underline firmly, against that casting of Pfeiffer and he and Peters got into it.”
From the look of things, there was a lot of behind-the-scenes drama with the production of Tim Burton’s original Batman film. Michelle Pfeiffer would, of course, go on to play Catwoman in the film’s sequel, Batman Returns. Apparently whatever issues the two had were put aside for the sequel.
What do you all make of the drama between Michelle Pfeiffer and Michale Keaton? Would you have rather seen Michelle Pfeiffer play Viki Vale than Catwoman in the Tim Burton Batman films? Sound-off your thoughts in the comments!
