Hi David. I'm writing you about Mayor Borg: why the first name of the Mayor is "Joe"? This name doesn't appear in either the novelization or the script. Where does it come this name? Phantom Stranger says that the name is in theplate at his seat during the Harvey Dent event at the beginning, but I can't see the name, even in the blu-ray.If the name isn't correct then it must vanish from the web. Can you move the page from "Joe Borg" to "Mayor Borg"? Thanks
I think you just read the Batman-Online forums and saw what they said and are taking their word for it. I've been a member there for a long time. There are still photos of Billy Dee Williams that are not on that site where you can see it.
You might want to check out this interview at Batman Online with Janet Scott Batchler. Ben Yip (that guy who made those BF novelazation posts you like) confronts her about Burton's actual involvement. He was in no way the primary hands-on producer. He really shouldn't even receive credit, like Sam Hamm on Returns. The studio just wants names associated with previous successes to entice potential customers. Burton receives top billing because nobody knows who the hell Peter MacGregor-Scott is.
MEETING TIM BURTON Needless to say, there's been massive speculation around the Internet on how much involvement Tim Burton may have had in the third Batman film.
The truth is that Burton was only around to approve his creative successors. After approving Joel Schumacher to take over as the director, Burton met with the Batchlers, who agreed with him that "the key element to Batman is his duality. And it's not just that Batman is Bruce Wayne. All the villains also have secret identities. Superman may be Clark Kent, but Lois Lane is always Lois Lane and Lex Luthor is always Lex Luthor.
And when we said that, Tim just kinda went, 'Yes!' And at that point, we pretty much had the job."
Tim Burton would go on to make Ed Wood as the Batchlers began work with Joel Schumacher.
Firstly, thanks for your invitation to this wiki. I've added a bit where I can. I was wondering if your wiki could affiliate with my two wiki's about the DC Cinematic Universe (with the new upcoming Batman films) and Batman: The Animated Series. There is also a wiki about the Dark Knight trilogy which I would suggest affiliating with as well. With any luck, being promoted by other wiki's will get you new users and more contributions here.
