Trivia

Although the Joker is generally thought to have been destroyed for good in this movie, he is not actually completely gone, as he has a still-living counterpart in an alternate universe introduced in the "Justice League" episode, Justice League: A Better World: Part II (2003), in which the Joker has been lobotomized by that dimension's Superman and now serves as the superintendent of Arkham Asylum. However, this alternate Joker's status, by the time of the movie, is unknown. See more »

Goofs

As Batman approaches the Arkham operating theater (as Harley sings the lyric "buy you a looking glass"), the sign is briefly misspelled "operting." See more »

What a spectacular movie!
5 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Before watching this, I was expecting a good movie, but it turned out to be a spectacular movie that I want to watch again and again! This film pays true homage to the Batman animated series and explains many questions of what happened to the supporting characters and sidekicks of the original Batman animated series. The animation style for the Joker is that of Batman: TAS volume 1-3 (i.e. Joker: good version). If you're hesitant to watch this movie, go for it. Watch, love, and enjoy. I recommend buying the DVD right away, because it also has some pretty cool bonus features like a making-of feature, and a music video. I highly recommend this movie for a fan of the show, or anyone else who even remotely likes Batman.
