The 69-year-old star played the titular superhero in Tim Burton's DC Comics motion picture, but he isn't a massive fan of the genre.
Michael - who played villain Vulture in 2017 Marvel movie 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' - said: "After the first 'Batman', I’m not sure I’ve ever seen an entire [comic book] movie.
"I just never got around to it. So you’re talking to a guy who wasn’t in the zeitgeist of that whole world.
"When I went down to do the Marvel things in Atlanta … It’s an entire city dedicated to Marvel … They’ll be doing Marvel movies forever.

But Michael had to read the script a number of times to work out what was going on.
Gallery: What a NIGHTMARE! These films had huge production problems (BANG Showbiz)
Big productions always demand a lot of work and a considerable amount of courage as things can get out of control in the blink of an eye. Being bold can bring great results, but sometimes it is necessary to go through hell before getting into the spotlight. Here are 10 films in which production was an absolute nightmare...
Francis Ford Coppola’s war epic had so many problems that it even got its own documentary, “Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker’s Apocalypse”. The film was shot in the Philippines and the severe weather ended up destroying huge parts of the set, which caused the budget to skyrocket. Meanwhile, Coppola got into a row with actor Marlon Brando, who often forgot his lines and ended up putting much more weight than what was planned for his character. The situation almost got out of control with Coppola wanting to fire Brando because of his weight gain. The production was so stressful that leading actor Martin Sheen suffered a breakdown and nearly shut the entire production after having a heart-attack.
Steven Spielberg's horror classic became a nightmare when the director decided to shoot the film out on the open ocean. The crew had to deal with several problems, such as boats moving around and ruining takes, actors getting seasick and water damaging the equipment. The animatronic shark built for the film was constantly malfunctioning, which also caused a lot of delays. Spielberg told Entertainment Weekly: “I was pretty naive about mother nature and the hubris of a filmmaker who thinks he can conquer the elements was foolhardy, but I was too young to know I was being foolhardy”.
Robert Egger’s film was so demanding that Robert Pattinson almost punched the director in the face. He told Interview magazine: “That’s the closest I’ve come to punching a director. However much I love Robert [Eggers], there was a point where I did five takes walking across the beach, and after a while I was like, ‘What the f*** is going on?.’” Pattinson also did some crazy things for the film, like drinking mud to help him go a little mad or getting drunk to the point of wetting himself to get into the character.
The 1982 film became a big classic, but it was quite a nightmare for director Ridley Scott and his crew. Due to union rules in the United States, the director wasn’t allowed to bring his British crew with him, so he had to cope with the American crew, who he didn’t really want there as he considered Americans hard to work with. Scott wore a hat on set that read ‘GOV’, to which the crew responded by wearing sarcastic t-shirts with the saying ‘Yes guvnor my a**’. According to GQ magazine, lead actor Harrison Ford would later describe the experience as being a ‘b****’ due to all the tension on set.
Stanley Kubrick was a tough director and his methods on set became famous as he liked punishing leading actors Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall. The director would do multiple takes of the same scene and constantly criticise Duvall’s acting style to a certain level that she became sick for months after filming. "[Kubrick] doesn't print anything until at least the 35th take. Thirty-five takes, running and crying and carrying a little boy, it gets hard”, the actress told PEOPLE magazine. “But after a while, your body rebels. It says: 'Stop doing this to me. I don't want to cry every day.' And sometimes just that thought alone would make me cry.”
Director Alejandro González Iñárritu filmed the whole story in chronological order and using as much natural light as possible, which made the schedule hard to follow and caused several delays. The weather in the city of Calgary, Canada, was also a big problem, with temperatures often dropping to sub-zero levels. Leonardo DiCaprio told The Telegraph: “We were supposed to do a scene with my son as he’s praying for me. And it hit 40 below zero. At that point we couldn’t really open our eyes. And our fingers locked together and the camera gear locked together. Every day was a battle for myself and a lot of other people not to get hypothermia.”
Things started going wrong for ‘Suicide Squad’ right at the start, as director David Ayer had to rush production to fit Warner Bros’ extremely tight release date. The film was supposed to have a dark tone, but with previous production ‘Batman v Superman’ failing to live up to expectations at the box office, Warner Bros wanted the film to be more light-hearted . To fulfil the request, several editors were used to re-edit the film, and a huge amount of reshoots were needed.
Director David Fincher had so many problems in the production of ‘Alien 3’ that he even wanted to remove his name from the science-fiction film. Fincher had to deal with the studio controlling every detail of the production, which meant a lot of his ideas were shot down. He also complained about the difficulties filming once the script was being written and rewritten all the time. He told The Guardian: “No one hated it more than me; to this day, no one hates it more than me.”
He said: "Frankly, in the back of my head, I always thought, ‘I bet I could go back and nail that motherf*****.'
Daniel Craig leads highest movie star salaries with $100 MILLION
Daniel Craig, 53, tops Variety's list of the biggest actor salaries with a stunning $100 million for Knives Out 2 and 3, while Dwayne Johnson and Will Smith are next at $50 and $40 million ; seen in January 2020 In March, Variety reported that Craig, 53, would be joining the Netflix fold after the streaming service acquired a second and third film in the Knives Out series, which began with the acclaimed 2019 film.
"And so I thought, ‘Well, now that they’re asking me, let me see if I can pull that off.'
"I had to read it more than three times to go, ‘Wait, how does this work?'
"They had to explain that to me several times. By the way, I’m not being arrogant, I hope, about this.
"I don’t say it like, 'I’m too groovy.' I’m stupid. There’s a lot of things I don’t know about.
"And so, I don’t know, I just kind of figured it out, but this was different."
But he understood the importance of the Caped Crusader character a lot more after filming 'The Flash'.
He added to The Hollywood Reporter: "What’s really interesting is how much more I got [Batman] when I went back and did him. I get this on a whole other level now.
"I totally respect it. I respect what people are trying to make.
"I never looked at it like, ‘Oh, this is just a silly thing.’
"It was not a silly thing when I did 'Batman'. But it has become a giant thing, culturally. It’s iconic.
"So I have even more respect for it because what do I know? This is a big deal in the world to people. You’ve got to honour that and be respectful of that. Even I go, 'Jesus, this is huge.' "
