** Vicki has a moment when she accepts The Joker's offer to "lend [her] a hand" while she's hanging from a gargoyle, although this is justified since up to this point Joker has been extremely interested in her, so him acting like he cares about keeping her alive would be perfectly believable. Naturally the hand is a fake which snaps off forcing Batman to catch her.

See also ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries,'' which took some cues from the Burton films and actually launched the same year as ''Returns,'' and went on to produce a few movies of its own. The notorious ''Film/{{Catwoman}}'' film in 2004 has no continuity connection with these, but it's worth noting that the whole idea of doing a film about her alone was inspired by Pfeiffer's performance in '92.

** The ClimbingClimax with the shots of the stairwell looking downward as well as elements of first scene strongly resemble ''Film/{{Vertigo}}''

** Going for three: The ClimbingClimax is most directly based on the ''[[InvertedTrope descending]]'' climax of ''Theater/ThePhantomOfTheOpera''.

** The earliest example is the muggers at the beginning. One isn't pleased his buddy turned a gun on the kid. [[DisproportionateRetribution Guess which one gets put through a wall.]]

* BrandX: In the Joker's [[DoNotAdjustYourSet Smilex]] commercial, at the "blind taste test", a man who is tied to a chair and gagged (with a disclaimer reading "Not An Actor") is said to have been using BrandX ("Oh No!").

** Alicia is worried that Carl Grissom might find out about her affair with Jack.
-->'''Jack:''' He's a tired old man. He can't run the city without me. And besides, he ''doesn't'' know.\\
'''Alicia:''' You don't worry about a thing do you, Jack?

''Batman'' also revolutionized the home video industry -- it was the first financially successful film to be released for the home market ''the same year'' as its theatrical release for just $19.99. It became a stocking stuffer in many homes that Christmas. Now, even blockbuster hits are released in home video as soon as their theatrical runs are over (sometimes even ''before'' they end).

* WritingAroundTrademarks: Or rather "Designing Around Trademarks" - Warner Bros. wouldn't buy DC Comics until a few months after this film was released, thus they didn't have the rights to use the literally-trademark Bat-Insignia on the costume. To get around it, they created their own, adding two "legs" onto the tail of the insignia.
