DID YOU KNOW?
Robin Williams was considered for the role of The Joker in Tim Burton’s Batman (1989) when Nicholson hesitated. Williams was offered the role, but when Nicholson decided to take it, Warner Brothers let Williams go. Williams was offended that the company used him as bait to grab Nicholson for the role, and rejected the chance to play The Riddler in Batman Forever (1995). He also refused to work with Warner Brothers until they apologized.
Although I keep this blog focused on facts and history about Batman, I thought, because of recent events, it would be nice if we all tips our hats to Robin Williams. He couldn’t have been The Joker, though…because he would’ve even made Batman laugh. RIP Robin Williams
He would have been a perfect Joker.
