Michael Keaton was alleged to have earned eleven million dollars for reprising his role as the Caped Crusader. The Warner Brothers executives were very uneasy with this. However, Director Tim Burton stated that he personally believed Keaton deserved it. See more »

In the UK the film was cut by 9 seconds at its cinema release. One cut was of a clown swinging nunchakus, the other was of Catwoman putting some spray-paint cans in a microwave to start an explosion at a department store. These cuts also applied to all pre-2005 VHS and DVD releases. In 2005, the film was resubmitted for the special edition DVD release. The BBFC downgraded the certificate back to the original 12 certificate (which was not possible in 1992, when the 12 certificate was cinema only), and waived the cuts to the chain-sticks scene, but the aerosol in the microwave scene remained cut on the grounds that it was a potentially dangerous imitable technique. Various extra features being rated 15 caused the overall category of the DVD to be 15. The resulting cuts meant that the audio commentary was dropped from the UK release (probably because it would have been out of sync), although it is still mistakenly advertised as present on the DVD packaging. All previous BBFC cuts were finally fully waived in 2009 for the Blu-ray release, and the film upgraded to 15. See more »
I do not like this movie at all, actually hated it, and this is coming from a loyal Batman fan. Every time Tim Burton makes a movie he constantly tries to remind you that you're watching a "burton film" rather then just a movie, and for Batman Returns, it's just that. I stopped watching this after my love for "Mask Of The Phantasm" came to DVD. Batman is still a homicidal maniac who hasn't been locked up in Arkham yet, speaking of Arkham Aslyum, where is it? Burton just rathered to kill off the criminals rather then adding the influential mad house from the comics. Batman is yet again playing second fiddle to the villains, having the Dark Knight in only about 25 minutes of the movie. Anyways, I'll get to the point. There is a new nutjob running around Gotham...wait? in the sewers? Finally, Killer Croc is introduced to the movies. No, wait....that's not Croc...that's...the Penguin? Burton portrayed Oswald Cobblepot as a sewer mutant freak, with feces on his pajama bottoms, puking black and green mucus from his mouth with an army of penguins with rocket launchers on their backs, marching around the town like nazi soilders from the '40s. The Penguin has always been a sophisticated gentlemen, a rich greedy crimeboss and owns a local dance club. Oswald always only carried an umbrella with him because his father died of pneumonia when he was a kid, and his loving mother didn't want him to catch it. In Batman Returns, his parents hated him, disown him and threw him into a river. Catwoman was shown as a psychopathic terrorist, killing random strangers and blowing up everything in her path when she was thrown out of a window and revived when cats tried to eat her. This movie is poorly plotted. Burton disregards anything he sees in the comic book and makes it his version and to me; that is not the Batman I grew up to love.
