Was Burton origanly supposed to direct B&R?

reply

No. It's just imo what the cast may have looked like had burton stayed for Forever and B&R

reply

Sounds about right. Though I think he would have used Lisa Marie or Winona Ryder for poison Ivy (around that time).

reply

What about Helena Bonham Carter as Poison Ivy?

reply

I dont think she was on burtons radar in 97

reply

Maybe Winona Ryder as Poison Ivy. She looks actually similar to Uma Thurman.

reply

Yeh I didn't think of her. Went with Nicole as she be too young for Keaton in BF so use her for Ivy

I wonder how Anjelica Huston would've fared as Poison Ivy? Based on her character as the Grand High Witch in the original version of The Witches, she could've brought a sinister but elegant edge to Poison Ivy.

Here's how Anjelica looks in green:

Plus, she was Morticia Addams, in the live-action Addams Family movies that weren't actually directed by Tim Burton (they were instead, helmed by Barry Sonnenfeld, but it would be easy to assume that Tim Burton himself directed them. Plus, there's the Jack Nicholson factor:

She is good, but probably would be too old at the time for the “sexiness” of the role. I could imagine Anjelica Huston in an elegant dress but not in a skin-tight suit showing off her crotch, ass and breasts.

RICCI AS BATGIRL HAS AROUSED BOTH MY BRAINS FROM SLUMBER...THAT IS INTRIGUING.

reply

'zactly - Keaton, Phoenix, Ricci = trio of bat freaks

I AM GENUINELY SAD THAT I NEVER GOT TO SEE THAT FILM.

Maybe Lisa Marie as Poison Ivy since she played lots of sexy roles in other Tim Burton films at the same time.

reply

The actor who played Tor Johnson in Ed Wood probably would have played Bane.
