Batman Forever Director's Cut Release10 May 2021
By Eva Araújo (Web correspondent)
When a movie is filmed, they usual shoot more scenes than we think.
As fans, we wish deleted scenes never existed because - let's admit it - we want to see it all, but during the editing phase, many scenes are removed from the final cut of the movie. And the key here, is the word "final". For a final cut to exit that means other cuts have preceding it. Including a first one - usually longer than the final one.
Joel Schumacher was the director of the movie "Batman Forever", in which Jim Carrey played The Riddler!
A initial rumor, was recently proven by Akiva Goldman (who penned the script), about the existence of a first cut (supposedly 170 minutes long) and he warn us that:
"Batman Forever still has a renaissance coming. I really am interested to see whether the original cut of Batman Forever comes out because I got to see it, recently, the very very first one, which was Preview Cut: One. It was really dark, it was a pretty psychological exploration of guilt and shame."
The hashtag #ReleaseTheSchumacherCut, has started to spread and we gotta say… we really, really want to see it!
"Riddle me this
Riddle me that
What does it take
To see the first cut of the big man bat"
