Correct me if Iím wrong but shortly after this in 1989 didnít they decide to move forward with what would turn out to be Bat II? It just took them almost three years to complete it. Itís strange looking back and realizing how long it would take them to complete projects together. I wonder if it was different working together after Bat? In those seventies interviews they appeared so close or maybe thatís just how I want to believe they were. I just wonder if it was somewhat uncomfortable getting together for Bat II after all the lawsuits and possible resentment?
