In Batman Forever, Jim Carrey played the role of Batman, although he wasn’t the only actor interested in the role. Michael Jackson lobbied tirelessly to get that job, despite his preference for singing rather than acting.

Joel Schumacher claimed in a 2003 interview that he ultimately turned Michael Jackson’s interest before casting Jim Carrey.

However, he didn’t go into detail as to why Carrey wasn’t the first choice. Batman Forever was initially supposed to feature Robin Williams. 

Still, he refused to discuss working on the film due to his resentment about being passed up for the Joker in 1989’s Batman (Jack Nicholson grabbed the role from him).

Hush is one of Batman’s most exciting and personal foes. He’s on this list because of the arc “Heart of Hush,” in which he tried to impersonate Bruce Wayne.
