Quotes

Barbara Gordon: Looks like our Wallwalker's neuro-electrical pulse activates some kind of... molecular dispersion. That's what enables him to pass through inanimate objects.
Helena Kyle: And here I just thought he was just really skinny...

Alternate Versions

The original version of the pilot differs from the aired version in numerous ways.
  • The original began with Selina Kyle's murder, then cut to Barbara Gordon in the shower, intercut with Batman and Batgirl fighting Joker. There is a voice-over by a reporter on this. Barbara then hears this reporter, who is on her TV, announce Selina has been murdered and goes to the door where she is shot by Joker. The aired version is edited differently. It starts with footage of Batman fighting Joker, then has a shot of Helena and Selina Kyle walking together that wasn't in the previous version. It then adds new footage of Batman and Catwoman fighting. It then cuts to Barbara Gordon's apartment, intercut with footage of her fighting. It cuts directly from her in the shower to her opening the door, where she is shot by Joker. The whole thing has new narration by Alfred Pennyworth.
  • The most obvious difference is that Harley Quinn was recast. Scenes originally shot with Sherilyn Fenn were reshot with Mia Sara.
  • There a few alternate scenes involving Barbara Gordon, including one that indicates her involvement with a fellow teacher has been going on for six months. In the TV series, the relationship begins in the pilot and progresses through the series.
  • There are also considerable differences in the score and sound effects.

It shouldn't be bagged like it has
11 February 2004 | by jester_alteratorSee all my reviews

I was called by a beautiful friend of mine who was frantically trying to tell me to switch the channels over to the new program BOP.

I am clearly in her debt. I loved the show.

I work in a video store and i am constantly reviewing movies and watching older ones. I am a huge fan of the comics and the movies as well.

The whole concept of Batman leaving and the daughter coming up the ranks. Bat Girl being the 'leader'. Its fantastic. The music, the graphics and the villains were great.

I don't understand why people come on to say that it was bad. I understand that the series didn't last very long but i believe the idea will be picked up again and enhanced even greater.

If there is a survey for people that enjoyed this movie and would pay to see it again...put me on it.
