He added: "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 honor that and be respectful of that."
