Tim Burton didn't intend to return for Batman Returns after his smash hit Batman movie in 1989, but after Warner Bros gave him free rein on the project and allowed him to fully "Burtonize" the movie, he agreed.
The result was, unsurprisingly a completely Tim Burton Batman movie. Full of the typical gothic, macabre, dark and sexualised version of Gotham you'd expect.
Warner Bros, though, didn't expect it, and neither did their family friendly merchandising team.
I would love to hear your thoughts on Batman Returns !
