The comedian Michael Keaten takes the mask and cowl of Batman to the silver screen. Rather than a campy or comedic approach to the role, the movie presents Batman in any light but that. A serious tortured soul struggling to find himself and better the world is what this encarnation of Batman is about; quite similar to the Batman as told in the Legend of the Dark Knight comic series. Batman was not born a strong, intelligent, brave soul. Rather circumstance made him this way. While as a boy, Bruce Wayne watched as criminal Jack Napier kills both his parents after asking them if they like to dance with the devil in the pale moonlight. The image of their death burned into young Bruce's conciousness. Along with his butler Alfred, Batman was born aimed at finding his parents killer and righting the wrongs of the world. Jack Napier still exists and torments the world, but he is still a somewhat normal criminal. But during one criminal endeaver he falls into a vast amount of chemical toxins that transform him into the Joker. The Joker then aims to make everyone just like him by poisoning the citizens of Gotham. But Batman intervenes. The movie proceeds with action sequences that take the Batman franchise to a realm never before achieved. Batman ultimately kills the Joker but not after fighting his way through moutains of goons, thugs, and criminals, to get to the Joker.

Batman Returns

A new villain emerges for Batman to deal with. At first Oswald Cobblepot makes himself out to be a victim of parental neglect.

In the movie's end Batman throws up many coins to destract Two Face while he is flipping to determine Batman's fate. Batman teams with an orphan, and Robin is born. Batman is now part of a family, and the legacy of Batman seems to be a thing of forever now.
