The world rediscovered one of its greatest superheroes and filmmaker. Tim Burton (Alice in Wonderland) found a subject to match his dark stylings in the Academy Award-winningr Batman, a thrilling tale of origins and inevitable clash that has Bruce Wayne (Michael Keaton) becoming the Caped Crusader and the cackling, vile Joker (Jack Nicholson) emerging from an acid vat to terrorize Gotham City. Kim Basinger co-stars. The director, the star, the excitement - all return for Batman Returns as the caped hero swoops into action against scheming tycoon Max Shreck (Christopher Walken) and that diabolical denizen of Winter Underland, the Penguin (Danny DeVito). Adding to the mayhem: mysterious Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer) has her claws out, but for whom?
