Batman and Robin director apologises for film and talks about backlash

It’s been 20 years, but the director of “Batman & Robin” is really sorry.

Outspoken fans of the DC Comics franchise objected to pretty much everything in the 1997 movie — from the casting of George Clooney as Batman to the nipples on his bat suit.

“I want to apologize to every fan that was disappointed because I think I owe them that,” he said.

Schumacher took full responsibility for the film landing with a fizzle.

“A lot of it was my choice,” he said. “No one is responsible for my mistakes but me.”

Part of the issue, the director said, was that “Batman Forever” actor Val Kilmer quit the project to take a role in “The Island of Dr. Moreau.”
