Chris O’Donnell insisted driving the Batmobile during the “joyride” scene instead of letting a stuntman do it…and he crashed into the curb and dented the car.

Tommy Lee Jones and Jim Carrey did not get along to a point Schumacher said he would never work with them again. However, he did work with Carry in The Number 23 in 2007.

Billy Dee Williams was the original Two-Face in the 1989 Batman. Warner Brothers bought him out to cast Tommy Lee Jones.

Jimmy Carry was willing to shave a question mark into his scalp except he didn’t do it because he had to show up in real life court for his divorce.

Val Kilmer learned about getting the role of Batman while he was filming The Ghost in the Darkness. He accepted the role before reading the script.

Michael Keaton turned down the role for this movie because he didn’t like the script or the direction Schumacher was taking the movie.

Jim Carrey broke a lot of the furniture in his trailer while practicing his cane twirling.

Robin Williams was considered for the Riddler role, but he was still unhappy that he was used as “bait” to get Jack Nickolson to play the Joker in the 1989 Batman.

The Batman suit was so heavy that Val Kilmer was said to have lost 5 lbs during the first fight scene.

This is the first time Arkham Asylum appears in Batman film.

Mel Gibson turned down the role of Two-Face because he was filming Braveheart.
