 (Edited)

Hello my name is ThatGuyWhoEdits & just recently joined.
So to make my debut i thought about sharing a fan edit that i been going off & on since 2008 & recently finished this year & quite proud of it myself!

Basically it’s a complete burtonized version of batman forever with alot of goofy & silliness excised from the original film along with danny elfman music completely implemented in the edit, & all of the deleted scenes inserted as well along with original timeline restored.

New batman returns style like opening
(Inspired by Jamie Demeter)

Danny Elfman’s expanded scores from Batman 1989,returns,& sleepy hollow are inserted into the film HOWEVER some but very little bits of Elliot Goldenthal’s work will still be in the film mostly his triumphant tracks as elfman’s music has very little triumphant music in his scores.

The original 89 batmobile is back thanks to the onstar batman commercials however some but very little stock footage from 89 & Returns will be inserted into the film just to fill in the gaps.

Added several ambient,noises,& sound effects from 89.

Destaturated the film’s color by 50%

And here’s a 20 min sneak peek of what i’ve done.

I can’t list everything that has been deleted but i can tell you my edit runs at an hour & forty mins making the film much darker & more to the point also If you wanna see it check out my YT under the same in the discussion section & you shall receive.

You either die a trilogy or live long enough to see yourself become batman & robin.

Hey ThatGuyWhoEdits, I watched your first 20 minutes of this edit on youtube and I must say it is far superior to the actual movie. I was wondering if there was any way to see the full edited film? If you had made DVD copies of this, I would definitely purchase one.

Yeah just head to my YT channel’s discussion section & you should find a link for it.

Very interesting - I’ve always enjoyed Batman Forever and it’s great to see different fan editors tackling it! Looking at your YouTube channel, are you also working on an unofficial Director’s Cut of BR as well? Based on the previews, that looks like a very promising edit as well!

Whoops, yes I meant BF, not BR lol

And thanks for the tip - I had it as Top Comments rather than Newest First so it was just showing the Tim Burton cut link, will have a look at the Unofficial Directors Cut as well.

I watched the Unofficial Directors Cut version - it works great as a proof of concept for just how good an official Directors Cut would be… just imagine all those deleted scenes properly restored and finished, they go such a long way towards fleshing out the story and Bruce/Batman’s character arc in the movie. Looking forward to seeing your version 2 of this one when you complete it!
