Antisocial Prof. Hammil's Remote Control device, which enables the user to take over any motor vehicle within 50 miles (!), is stolen by The Wizard, black-hooded mastermind, and his gang. Batman and Robin (who drive about in a standard convertible) must prevent the Wizard from obtaining diamonds, needed as fuel for the device, and rescue magazine photographer Vicki Vale from periodic perils. Where is the Wizard's base, reached only by remote controlled submarine? Which of several suspicious characters hides beneath the Wizard's hood? Written by

Vicki Vale would become a common character in the Batman comics after this film. Bob Kane based her on Marilyn Monroe, whom he met during the film's banquet. See more »
In Chapter 1, Batman Takes Over, Batman and Robin are in the Bat Cave still dressed in their caped outfits while examining evidence. Alfred phones to say that Vickie has arrived at the residence to see Bruce Wayne. Batman changes into his business suit while Robin does not change clothing and remains in the cave to examine evidence. Bruce then tricks Vickie by having Robin (still dressed in his cape in the cave) phone upstairs with the message that Vickie must leave to cover an auto accident. When Bruce returns to the cave, Robin is now dressed back in his business suit like Bruce, so they both pull out their caped outfits from a drawer to change together in order to leave and fight crime.

Great classic batman.This is how I like to remember Batman and Robin
Wow this movie is great and quite exciting.The costumes looks funny and many jokes about Batman started probably out of this.Furthermore a great movie even for younger Batman fans like me.Personally Batman is my favourite hero because he is just a normal bloke with nice gadgets,some muscle and a brain.The action is superb and storyline for me gets an A.Great plot and fighting too.Just don't mention the Batmobile but alas any comicbook fan will tell you that the Batmobile appeared much later detective comics # 27. You will be watching episode after episode and wonder how on earth can batman survive this.The only problem I have with this movie is once you start watching it believe me you won't stop.I give this Movie 7.9 out of 10.
