Batman/Superman movies 11 – Batman Returns

This is probably the first movie I’ve done for this blog series where the production was fairly straight forward. That’s not to say there isn’t anything worth talking about, but there weren’t any significant production troubles, behind the scenes politics, … Continue reading
