* NamesTheSame: [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batman,_Turkey# Batman]] in Turkey, known mainly for its NATO airbase, is not named after Batman [[note]]but from the like-named river, etymology unclear, perhaps from Bati-, west- [[/note]] which is kind of a letdown. But try reading the Wiki article without chuckling.

** This film went through so many different directors, screenplays, tones (including but not limited to straight up Adam West style parodies) and possible casts before we got the film we know and love today that there are truly too many to list here. Legend has it that Creator/RichardDonner himself, the man who directed the 1978 {{Superman}} film, was among the directors approached at one point to make this film, but had to decline due to previous commitments. Actors considered for Batman included Mel Gibson, Pierce Brosnan, Charlie Sheen, Tom Selleck and even Bill Murray opposite Eddie Murphy as Robin.

** The Axis Chemicals set was originally the xenomorph hive from ''{{Film/Aliens}}''. The crew had to remove most of the xenomorph webbing before filming, but bits of it can still be spotted if you look carefully enough.
* RecycledSet: The alien nest and colony from ''Film/{{Aliens}}'' was reused as the set for the Axis Chemicals facility.
