In the scene with Barbara Gordon's roommate in college, the background music is "Am I Blue", which has another connection to Batman. It also is featured in the animated Justice League: This Little Piggy (2004), in which Batman sings this song on stage in order to save a friend. Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero (1998) and Justice League are part of the same larger universe and continuity. See more »
At the beginning of the film, a polar bear breaks through the sheet of ice and starts to swim downwards. The ice sinks, but real ice floats. See more »
To start with, the animation is fantastic. The story is exciting and fast paced. Not as dark as the previous animated film, but it was like the way Batman acts in the comics and show. He solves the crime, looking for clues and has a great fight with the bad guy. This could have been a big screen contender but because Batman and Robin failed, Warner Bros. said no and released it to video. But this is still great and superior to Batman and Robin. They have to make another animated Batman film, and not that Batman Beyond film they're talking about. Recommended for all.
