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 were reshot with .
  • 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.

Batman's legacy didn't last.
22 November 2002 | by mack3175See all my reviews

I was sorry to hear that this show was cancelled. I really felt this would be has good as Smallville. But I guess not. Despite silly dialogue. This show was great. It also had great female leads, especially the lovely Dina Meyer. The cartoon Batman Beyond started out good, but fell out of the top ten after two seasons. Note to the female leads in Birds of Prey. I'm sorry to hear about the show, and good luck on future projects.
