Fighting Over Poison IvyEdit
Batman and his crime-fighting partner Robin both got affected by Poison Ivy's mind control dust, which caused them to fight over her throughout the film. Batman soon realized what was happening, and avoided her beauty and charms while Robin was still influenced. Eventually, Batman was able to gain Robin's trust again and the Dynamic Duo, along with their new partner Batgirl, managed to apprehend Poison Ivy, who is eventually imprisoned in Arkham Asylum.
Thawing Mr. FreezeEdit
Batman was tasked with apprehending a thief with a tragic background, known as Mr. Freeze.
Throughout the film, Bruce thinks about his relationship with his butler and friend, Alfred Pennyworth.
Batman stopped Mr. Freeze, along with Robin and Batgirl, from freezing Gotham City with the new telescope at Gotham Observatory, and revealed to Freeze that Poison Ivy had tried to kill his wife in order to be the only woman in Freeze's life. Batman promised to have Freeze's wife moved to the lab at Arkham Asylum, where he would be able to continue his research and find a cure for her disease. Freeze also provided Batman with an antidote to save a dying Alfred, who was suffering from a lesser case of the same disease. Mr. Freeze was locked up in Arkham, where he promised to make Poison Ivy's life "a living hell".
Back at Wayne Manor, Bruce gave Alfred the antidote, saving his life. After initial hesitation, he allowed Alfred's niece, Barbara Wilson, to continue being Batgirl and join the crime-fighting team.
Behind the scenesEdit
- George Clooney also wore an anatomically correct Batsuit, including abs and nipples, in a gladiator fashion, blending man and beast.
- Joel Schumacher cast Clooney in the role because he felt the actor could provide a lighter interpretation of the character than Michael Keaton (in Batman and Batman Returns) and Val Kilmer (in Batman Forever).
- Schumacher first got the idea of Clooney as Batman when he doodled the Batman cowl over the image of Clooney's face in a magazine.
