* OldShame: Only if you read it out of context. Val Kilmer enjoyed working on this film and everyone involved and would have been interested in returning once his schedule cleared up, but (fortunately for him) ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'' continued without him. But he was quoted as saying "I've done an absurdly commercial cartoon and now I'm more likely to get hired for a job I couldn't get hired for before because I hadn't done enough movies. It's so rare when an actor gets hired because he's right for the role, it just doesn't figure into it." (In ''Film/KissKissBangBang'', Kilmer's character Perry shows up and says virtually the same thing to Robert Downey Jr.)

* BreakawayPopHit: Music/{{U2}}'s "Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me". Inverted with Seal's "Kiss From A Rose" (it was released the year before, but only became a smash hit after [[RevivalByCommercialization its inclusion]]).

** There were also reports that Tommy Lee Jones disliked Jim Carrey, so much so that he wouldn't even have lunch with him. According to Carrey, the first time he met Jones, the veteran actor growled, "I do not sanction your buffoonery."

Which is funny considering Jones would spend his entire screentime trying to out-ham the ham master Carrey.

** Unlike Burton, Schumacher is a [[OneOfUs life-long comic book fan]] and originally wanted to do a film version of ''[[ComicBook/BatmanYearOne Year One]].'' He had '''{{Frank Miller}}'s''' help drafting a screenplay! But the [[ExecutiveMeddling executives at Warner Bros.]] wanted something that could be [[LighterAndSofter sold to kids...]]

** The cuts also would have changed the chronology of scenes in the finished cut: The Batsignal seen by Bruce at Wayne Enterprises is being helmed by Chase in the final cut, but it would've originally summoned him to the bank after Dent escaped Arkham in the deleted opener (which would explain the sirens Bruce hears when he sees it), and the scene with Chase on the roof would've been slotted before the Batmobile chase where it climbs the wall.

*** As did [[HilariousInHindsight Christian Bale]]. Notably, when Bale auditioned for ''Film/BatmanBegins'', the Batsuit he wore in his screen test was the one Kilmer wore here. (That's right -- Bale ''has'' sported Bat-Nipples.)

** When Bruce insists Robin should be called "Dick Grayson College Student." To which Dick replied "Screw you!" It's hard to blame Chris O'Donnell seeing how the last college he was in, [[ScentOfAWoman involved nearly getting expelled and putting up with Al Pacino.]]
