Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars
I just don't see how Batman could be seen to have been more highbrow than Trek before Batman Begins? The previous Batman movie tanked and was a joke to everybody. Nemesis did poorly but it's nowhere near the laughing stock Batman and Robin is.
Schumacher made a consious decision to embrace the campiness of the 60's television show. Turns out, no one else wanted to make the leap with him. 'Nemesis' was simply bad.
Some say that he was the first choice to play the new Doctor but turned it down when he was barred from putting racing stripes on the TARDIS.
All we know is, he's called The Stig.
