Batman Returns is the 1992 Tim Burton-directed sequel to the 1989 hit Batman. Michael Keaton returns as Batman/ Bruce Wayne.

Meet Max Shreck. Gotham City Power Magnate, in more ways than one. The shining light of Gotham. He sees a bright future for Gotham, and he'll eliminate any obstacle to that end. Including the current Mayor, and possibly Bruce Wayne.

Enter The Penguin, from the sewers, with his Red Triangle Circus Gang. He and Max, working together to scratch each other's backs.

Exit Selina Kyle, an unfortunate casualty in Max's crusade. Max doesn't know that Selina has nine lives as Catwoman.
