Batman Returns Details


In this first sequel to 1989's [[Feature~V4278~Batman~batman]], the Caped Crusader ([[Performer~P37277~Michael Keaton~michaelkeaton]]) is up against the Penguin (Danny DeVito), the hideously deformed scion of a wealthy Gotham City family. The Penguin plots with evil businessman Max Schreck ([[Performer~P74206~Christopher Walken~christopherwalken]]) to become mayor and then turn Gotham into a cathedral of crime. Upon overhearing these plans, Schreck's mousy secretary Selena Kyle ([[Performer~P56469~Michelle Pfeiffer~michellepfeiffer]]) is tossed from a high-rise window by her boss. Rescued by a covey of kittens, Selena transforms into the leather-clad Catwoman. In this guise, she teams with the Penguin and Schreck to divvy up their ill-gotten gains and help discredit Batman-but she also has her own scores to settle. Paul "Pee-Wee Herman" Reubens, [[Performer~P110164~Vincent Schiavelli~vincentschiavelli]] and Jan Hooks play significant bits, while Pat Hingle and [[Performer~P27964~Michael Gough~michaelgough]] make returns as, respectively, Commissioner Gordon and Alfred the Butler. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
