Tim Burton on how the Batman movies faired after he wasn't making them anymore People Magazine

Burton said he fielded complaints about his tone being "too dark" for the Caped Crusader movies. "[Back then] they went the other way. That's the funny thing about it. But then I was like, 'Wait a minute. Okay. Hold on a second here. You complain about me, I'm too weird, I'm too dark, and then you put nipples on the costume? Go f--- yourself.' "Seriously," he added. "So yeah, I think that's why I didn't end up [doing a third film]…."

He asked the seller to bring any comics she had as he was interested in making an offer on multiple books.

...When the woman opened the suitcase, Roma knew instantly the book on the top of the pile was his as it was the one with the specific markings on the cover.
"I asked them, ‘How would you like to handle this?’ and you could see by the expression on their faces they thought they were going to get money."
Instead, he told them he was keeping the books and he was calling police. "They were both shocked and I was shaking, but shaking in anger because I was ready for a duel with the guy if he began any trouble."

Hey, why doesn't DC just make a whole DCU over on HBO Max?Forbes

Chief Executive Officer and president of Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD) David Zaslav reportedly wants major changes to the studio’s handling of DC Comics properties, including putting a lot of projects on the chopping block and insisting all DC films be theatrical releases. However, I think there’s a better long-term approach for DC brands. I believe WBD should create a shared DCEU exclusively for HBO Max, and reserve theatrical for team-up “event” films and the biggest character IP, in a way that will catch up to Marvel and generate more revenue in the long run.
