“You know the story. He’d say, ‘That old suit was impossible to handle.'” ” [Michael Keaton] He was so frustrated that he couldn’t move his neck or anything. The fit was perfect, but it’s often in the movies that the better the suit, the more uncomfortable it is.”

He said:
“We didn’t want to give the audience a literal comic book adaptation. I think that’s one of the good decisions we made. If you’ve seen the movie, you don’t know where this goes. As much as some people would have liked to see this literal adaptation, I think we did the right thing.” I think they’ll be happy to see that the story takes another direction.”
