Gotham City: dark, dangerous, 'protected' only by a mostly corrupt police department. Despite the best efforts of D.A. Harvey Dent and police commissioner Jim Gordon, the city becomes increasingly unsafe...until a Dark Knight arises. We all know criminals are a superstitious, cowardly lot...so his disguise must be able to strike terror into their hearts. He becomes a bat. Enter Vicky Vale, a prize-winning photo journalist who wants to uncover the secret of the mysterious "bat-man". And enter Jack Napier, one-time enforcer for Boss Grissom, horribly disfigured after a firefight in a chemical factory...who, devoid of the last vestiges of sanity, seizes control of Gotham's underworld as the psychotic, unpredictable Clown Prince of Crime...the Joker. Gotham's only hope, it seems, lies in this dark, brooding vigilante. And just how does billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne fit into all of this? Written by

Michael Keaton hated the Batsuit because he suffered from claustrophobia. Danny Elfman and Keaton both decided that it would enhance his performance. And it did. See more »
When the Joker releases the gas from the clown balloon, its neck expands. When the Batwing releases it by the Moon, you can see it is in its normal clown shape. See more »

This and batman returns and the first couple of Superman's are the finest super hero movies i have scene, Michael Keaton had the same impact as Christopher reeve had with the superman series,when i was a little kid i use to think that batman returns was the best batman,but until a year ago i watched the first batman, and jack Nicholson was a sensational joker, the way he portrayed him was brilliant,Michael Keaton was a great Batman,(i coined't believe he was controversially Joice for the role)the music is great especially in the finally finale,i know heaps of people who hate Batman because he dosen't have superpowers, well this movie shows why Batman is the greatest hero.
Why Keaton left the Batman franchise i will never know.
