On how Weird Al Yankovic got involved with “Batman vs. Robin” from voice director Andrea Romano:

"I’ve known Al for a long time. My husband, before I met him, designed Al’s first album cover. I always like to cast against type — you wouldn’t think of Al for this role. I thought, let’s do something creepy for Al. His performance was terrific."

Director Jay Oliva & screenwriter J.M. DeMatteis spoke about how Batman vs. Robin gives the opportunity to show a different side of Batman:

"We’ve seen Batman before — he kicks ass and takes names and we love him for that. I think it was a great idea to introduce Damian into this storyline. We’ve never seen father Bruce Wayne.”“With a character like Batman, by bringing Damian in, we’re getting to see this character in a way we’ve never seen before. We’re shining a light on his psyche and soul."
