Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!


#Quote
1 [on seeing the animation for Batman: The Animated Series for the first time]: "I was really blown away. I turned to Mark [Hamill] and I was like 'Did you have any idea we were working on something like this?!'"
2 To be fair, I must give credit where credit is due. Although Kilmer is clearly no Michael Keaton - except for a few corny lines, which are mainly the writers' fault, and a slight lacking when it comes to the portrayal of a dark side - he did a much better job than I expected.
3 He [Bruce Wayne] is Batman. He became Batman the instant his parents were murdered. Batman needs Bruce, however hollow that identity feels to him from time to time. Bruce keeps Batman human. On Michael Keaton -
4 To me, Batman is definitely Bruce Wayne's darker side. The challenge is playing it as two separate aspects of the same person. I have to create the illusion of a Dark Knight, who's mysterious and strong.
5 I love doing the voice of Batman because of the quality of the animation. The music is particularly incredible. Another bonus is getting the opportunity to work with some very respected actors who do not usually do voice work.
6 People fantasize about being a hero and helping someone in trouble. Batman is that fantasy realized--not just for Bruce Wayne, but for the audience. Inwardly, Bruce Wayne is still an adolescent watching his parents being murdered. That will never leave him. And people really relate to that.
7 On Batman -

#Trademark
1 The voice of Bruce Wayne/Batman
2 Deeply charming, yet virile voice
