Relive The Nightmare Of Joel Schumacher's BATMAN & ROBIN With Mr. Freeze Concept Art

Hit the jump to check out concept art for some of Mr. Freeze's (Arnold Schwarzenegger) gadgets used in Joel Schumacher's disastrous Batman & Robin (1997), created by Patrick von Janicke.

While Arnold Schwarzenegger is currently taking his lumps for The Last Stand being a box office failure, let us not forget the worst film he ever participated in, 1997's Batman & Robin. I'm pretty sure Arnold isn't as ashamed of it as we would like to think, seeing as though he was paid a cool, $25 million. For that type of money I'd deliver silly Mr. Freeze puns all day long. Hopefully this makes you think twice before bitching and moaning about Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy.






Batman & Robin (1997) was directed by Joel Schumacher, from a script written by Akiva Goldsman. The film starred: Arnold Schwarzenegger as Dr. Victor Fries/Mr. Freeze, George Clooney as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Chris O'Donnell as Dick Grayson/Robin, Uma Thurman as Dr. Pamela Isley/Poison Ivy, Alicia Silverstone as Barbara Wilson/Batgirl, Michael Gough as Alfred Pennyworth, Pat Hingle as Commissioner James Gordon, Elle Macpherson as Julie Madison, Vivica A. Fox as Ms. B. Haven, and Vendela Kirsebom as Nora Fries.

I have nothing positive to say about this film and, therefore, in turn, this article.

"Nightmare"? why? this was the greatest parody ever made. I would watch Arnie spit out those one-liners any time "Let's kick some ICE!" lmfao

I loved this film as a kid, part of the reason I became a Batman fan (I think I was 4 when it came out). It's painful to watch now though.
Jolt17 - 2/3/2013, 5:24 AM
There was a time when I preferred this over Tim Burton's Batman Returns, which I used to greatly despise. Childhood, you're doing it wrong.

TelaVizion: The Invincible Iron Man cover is a fan-made, though. There are numerous evidences, but it's already obvious through Tony's face - and the background - which is too cartoony in style.

@TelaVizion Wow! That's amazing. Seriously, amazing..
SpideyQuad - 2/3/2013, 7:05 AM
LOL, possibly the worst CBM ever
sameoldthing - 2/3/2013, 7:30 AM
It's a crap movie sure but it's pure camp..trying to capture the 60's tv show vibe.

Nolan films are the super serious / realistic version.

Next Bat-films need to directly adapt from the comics / cartoons & have the outlandish super powered villains such as Clayface & make Bats into a real "Dark Knight Detective".

As a ten year old, this movie was freakin badass. I saw that sh!t 3 or 4 times at the theatre. Fifteen years later, not so much. Although I do remember going to Taco Bell like everyday trying to score the Batman drink tabs. I was always a Batman or an Alfred short of winning the grand prize. What a gyp.

Anyone who thinks this takes the cake for worst Arnold movie needs to sit down and watch "Hercules In New York".
fawfulmark2 - 2/3/2013, 9:06 AM

You said it man. And it probably was a factor in future Batman films going all pretentious and 'high brow' instead of just giving fans the real Batman from the comics. There is a pit in hell waiting for you Mr Schmacher.
robsncoppers - 2/3/2013, 9:49 AM
You guys need to stop hating. I thought the movie was cool.

@TheYoungMan exactly. I loved this as a kid too.
cfoster060809 - 2/3/2013, 10:32 AM
agreed this movie is pretty bad, but Clooney was WAAAAAAY worse than Arnie in this. IMO Mr. Freeze is a great Batman and IF done correctly could be great on screen
storyteller - 2/3/2013, 10:53 AM
I liked Arnold's Freeze.
DrDoom - 2/3/2013, 10:58 AM
I'm afraid... that my condition has left me.... COLD.... to your pleas of mercy.
