One of Schumacher's chief complaints centers on the film’s setting and composition. "I don’t even recognize the Gotham I knew," Schumacher said. “Everything is gray and black, even the villains. Everyone knows bad guys wear neon green and purple!”
"Ideally,” he added, "a Batman film should look like a gay porno made with Lite Brites."
Schumacher also said he had a hard time determining who the villains were. "The audience needs you to use puns to remind them who the bad guy is. Would it have killed [Nolan] to add a ‘This guy’s a Bane in the neck' or 'He's not Ra's Al-Ghuling around?'"
Schumacher was able to at least glimpse a silver lining, saying, "There’s one thing I took from my Batmans that I'll never give back...and that’s Tommy Lee Jones’s dignity."
