We had the pleasure of sitting down to talk with one of the most successful producers in Hollywood: Michael Uslan, who is the Executive Producer of the Batman series of films that began with Tim Burton's imaginative take on the character back in 1989 and continues to this day with Christopher Nolan in the director's chair.
Mr. Uslan is a longtime fan of comic books, and he acquired the rights to produce Batman movies back in the late 1970s. We spoke about his 10+ year journey to get Batman on to the big screen with Tim Burton's 1989 smash hit, Batman. There's a new Batman film due in Summer 2012, The Dark Knight Rises, and director Christopher Nolan and star Christian Bale will both be back to deliver another thrilling installment in the successful franchise.
Among Mr. Uslan's other film projects are the Swamp Thing movies and its associated cable television series, The Spirit, Constantine, Catwoman, and National Treasure. Another of Mr. Uslan's many accomplishments is that he is the first person to teach an accredited course on the serious study of comic books – "The Comic Book in America" at Indiana University.
