Some suggestions for you :

I think our Batman had to be fun, light-hearted, funny, tongue-in-cheek... and I think that made kind of an homage to those earlier comic books, where Batman always had a quip or something.

In the late '60s, there were the the three B's: The Beatles, Batman, and Bond.

I am a private person. I don't need a lot of company. And I find it really, really difficult to talk about myself.

I love to do voiceover because, for me, if you know what you're doing, it's simple. No makeup, no costuming, none of the baloney. None of the egos - you don't have to deal with all that crap. I love voiceovers.

I'm not a vindictive kind of guy.

Anything with 'Family Guy' is great.

I did a character called Captain Q for Nestle's Quik. Those commercials were kind of funny.

Not to be able to move around or do things without thinking - that's tough. I may end up that way, but if I do, I hope to hell my intellect will take over, and I'll find some kind of joy and a way to contribute.

Batman had a certain speech pattern that I established because he was always Sherlock Holmes-ian. He was Basil Rathbone. In other words, he was always musing about something.

I've always been able to work. I think it's an actor's obligation to keep working if you can.

The Batmobile wasn't a stickshift, and it was a challenge to drive, believe me.

I think I've said I'm the luckiest actor in the world. I mean that.

I've been able to reinvent myself and to keep an audience going at whatever age. This is terrific. I mean, how many actors get that chance?

I come to Comic-Con in San Diego because this is where those fans are - those to whom I owe the longevity of my career.
