Batman Returns

“HELLo tHERE.”

In the second of Tim Burton‘s blockbuster BATMAN films, the legendary hero (Michael Keaton) does battle against the slinky, mysterious Cat Woman (Michelle Pfeiffer) and the diabolically bizarre, sinister Penguin (Danny DeVito).

Crooked businessman Max Schreck is coerced into helping him become Mayor of Gotham and they both attempt to expose Batman in a different light.
