Good afternoon Gothamites and have a fantastic Friday! On this day (June 16) in Batman history, two live action Batman films had its world premiered and debuted in theaters in the U.S.! The first is the 1992 film "Batman Returns" which premiered 25 years ago at the @chinesetheatres in Hollywood (it hit U.S. theaters June 19)! The commercial success of Tim Burton's 1989 film 'Batman' spawned a sequel live action movie in 1992. Michael Keaton's Bruce Wayne - Batman reprises his role in "Batman Returns", going up against the corrupt business tycoon Max Shreck (Christopher Walken) who joins Oswald Cobblepot aka The Penguin (Danny DeVito) in order to take over Gotham City and defeat the Batman. But when Shreck's ex-assistant Selina Kyle (Michelle Pfeiffer) transforms into the seductive Catwoman, Batman has to also combat his romantic feelings for the femme fatale. Known for its dramatics from the set design to the costumes, "Batman Returns" was darker than its predecessor, the gothic tone courtesy of Batman co-creator Bob Kane as creative consultant, calling back to his character's origin from 1939. Tim Burton's 1992 sequel film "Batman Returns" was a blockbuster success. However, due to the dark tones of the film, it was not accepted by parents of young children and some sponsorship was turned down in terms of toys and merchandising. Warner Bros. then turned to producer and director Joel Schumacher to continue the Batman franchise with a lighter theme, his first Bat movie being our other anniversary we will celebrate today on History of the Batman, so stay tuned and thanks for following! ✌🏼💙🦇🎬🎉: BATMAN RETURNS TURNS 25 YEARS OLD OHISTORYOFTHEBATMAN Good afternoon Gothamites and have a fantastic Friday!

Afternoon Gothamites! Today (April 29), History of the Batman wants to wish actress Michelle Pfeiffer a happy 59th birthday! For us Batfans, Pfeiffer is known for her portrayal as Selina Kyle - Catwoman in Tim Burton's 1992 feature film Batman Returns. The second installment of Warner Bros.' initial Batman film series, with Michael Keaton reprising the title role of Bruce Wayne-Batman, Batman Returns introduces the characters of Max Shreck (Christopher Walken), a business tycoon who teams up with the Penguin (Danny DeVito) to take over Gotham City. Re-created by Daniel Waters, the character is based on the Selina Kyle from Mindy Newell's 1989 series "Catwoman: Her Sister's Keeper" and has heavy influence on Pre-Crisis Catwoman. After Nicole Kidman and Demi Moore turn down the roles, Pfeiffer's expressed interest made a spark. A new Catwoman for this transitional period for Batman, Michelle Pfeiffer is depicted as the lonely and frustrated secretary of corrupt tycoon Maximillian "Max" Shreck. After she accidentally discovers his plot to build a power plant that would steal Gotham's electricity, Shreck attempts to murder her by pushing her out the window of his top-story office. Though her fall is partly broken, Selina lies motionless on the snow-covered ground seemingly dead. Then mysteriously she is revived by a group of alley cats gnawing at her. Returning home, Selina's repressed rage transforms her into the clever super-villain Catwoman. With one of her nine 'lives' left by the end of the film, between Selina's soft and caring demeanor and Catwoman's sultry purr in the night Michelle Pfeiffer called this one of her most "challenging roles" and critics called it one of her most "iconic roles" that will be famous forever. Happy birthday Michelle Pfeiffer, your Catwoman is legendary! Thanks for following and we'll have more Batman media soon!
