I'm really looking forward to reading this (and will no doubt be reviewing it when it comes out). As far as I know Schumacher's Batman movies have never really been written about in this way - deconstructed, analysed, and talked about in an academic fashion.
Let's face it, for the last two decades most of what has been written about Batman Forever and Batman & Robin has been negative online comments by irate comic nerds mad about nipples or campy acting. It's nice that someone wants to talk about it in a balanced way.
Here's a preview of the chapter headings:-
Introduction: 'Can I persuade you to take a sandwich with you, sir?'
1. Neon Knight Begins: The Not-So-Dark Knight as an Element in Batman's Transmedia Multiverse
