** That hooker who smiles at LittleJimmy in the film's opening scene? Originally, she was supposed to be ''[[{{Lolicon}} only 14 years old]]''. She was also going to be shown chatting casually with a couple of cops, showing us how corrupt the Gotham police are even before we meet Eckhart.

* [[IAmNotSpock I Am Not Batman]]: Creator/AdamWest was so strongly associated with the role of Batman that it permanently typecast him and killed his then-fledgling acting career. After failing to distance himself from the series, he eventually got over it and not only embraced this reputation, but even managed to partially escape it by [[AdamWesting turning into a parody of himself.]]

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Tthe film has held up pretty well, in large part due to the 1940s style in the production design and more (heck, one scene shows a character reading a newspaper dated to 1947)... but the "smooth funk" songs by Music/{{Prince}} on the soundtrack do ''not'' help. Nor do some magazine covers we see: a 1980s-font cover of ''Time'' and a ''very'' '70s/'80s-looking cover of ''Vogue''. And the HellBentForLeather fashion sense of SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker's gang looks more than a little cheesy today, partly because leather jackets have become not only socially acceptable, but so commonplace that they're hardly noticed anymore.

** Burton stated in an interview that he had initially wanted Creator/AdamWest and Julie Newmar, from the 1960s series, to [[RemakeCameo play Thomas and Martha Wayne in the flashback]]. Audiences would recognize West and Newmar from the series and see them get shot, symbolizing the "death" of the old Batman. Script rewrites caused this to be scrapped, and West later said he wasn't even offered the role (and even if he was, he wouldn't have taken it). West would play Thomas Wayne in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold''.

** When the series finally saw the light of day, it was revealed exactly what the holdup was: the rights to the characters were owned by DC Comics, which is owned by Creator/WarnerBros, but the rights to the TV series, including its iconic elements like the costumes, Batmobile design, and the music, were split between Creator/TwentieththCenturyFox and Greenway Productions (William Dozier's production company). Classic Media (now DreamWorks Classics) had to buy out Greenway's share of the rights by negotiating with each and every one of William Dozier's heirs. They also attempted to buy out Fox's share and sell everything to Warner, but Fox instead chose to buy out Classic's share themselves. This lead to a dispute between Fox and Warner on who was going to release the series before Fox finally gave in and licensed the show to Warner.
