Was originally set for a release in the summer of 1997, but held back because of the negative reception following the release of Batman & Robin, which also featured Mr. Freeze as an antagonist. Nevertheless, upon release, the film received strongly positive reviews, compared to Batman & Robin. See more »

That SUB-ZERO should come on the HEELS of BATMAN & ROBIN with George Clooney, Chris O'Donnell and Arnold Schwarzenegger is a blasphemy. This movie should have been released first to give Joel Schumacher an idea of how his film should have been. SUB-ZERO uses much the same plot as B&R, but with way better results. SUB-ZERO also does it without relying on heavy camp humor as the live-action film did. Like BATMAN: MASK OF THE PHANTASM, SUB-ZERO can stand alongside those Max Fleischer SUPERMAN cartoons from the Forties.
