* Bruce adds a credit card to Wayne Financial, in the name of Batman, with no expiry date, and a bit of obfuscation, which draws on his own considerable finances, or a ghost account in the name of Batman. As far as the credit card company is concerned, the transaction is valid, and money is paid to the seller.

* Something I've wondered ever since I read the AgonyBooth review: near the end when Batman is reprogramming the satellite, he types on this keyboard with a really weird layout (he claims the top row reads “UWCARNYDLO”) and wonders what the hell it's called. I have looked and haven't found any examples of that layout online. Was it just some weird futuristic type keyboard prop?

* Even when I first saw this film as a ten-year-old, this bugged me: Why was Mr Freeze carrying around two vials of Macgregor's syndrome medicine in his suit? What possible use could he have for them? Did he know Batman was going to ask for them?

** Why wouldn't he allow her to wear what she wants? And she could do all kinds of things from dealing with the finances to doing food runs.

* Poison Ivy was sitting in her chair/plant when she kisses Robin. She fights him and Batman. Then Batgirl comes in and they fight. Batgirl pushes her into the chair/plant which eats her... No reason was given as to why her chair just ate her...
** One of two things happened: When simply lounging inside the plant, Poison Ivy didn't put enough pressure on its trigger mechanism to close it, but when she fell into it, the mechanism triggered and, like a perfect reflex action, the plant closed instinctively. Another possible reason is that Poison Ivy simply lost control of the plant due to being beaten up from the fight and her mind being otherwise occupied.
** Ivy wanted her plants to gain the strength and intelligence of animals, so that they would hate all humans and could defend themselves against the harms of mankind. While Ivy fought Batgirl, the plants' intellect reached maturity, so when she fell in, the flower throne, [[GoneHorriblyRight recognizing her as a human]], and/or [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness without any more need from the human that raised them]], [[TheStarscream turned on their mother]].

Added DiffLines:

** Who says he never takes it off, or eats? That's just [[LawOfConservationOfDetail one of those little details that are irrelevant to the plot]]; it's safe to assume he does these things off-screen.


* This is a minor one, but what purpose does Freeze's henchgirl (Vivica A. Fox) serve? She doesn't strike me as a fighter. Why would Freeze keep her around? Also, if he's still faithful to his wife, why allow a woman in skimpy clothes to walk around in your lair. Not going to question how she isn't freezing to death in her outfit.

** A deleted scene from ''Film/BatmanForever'' deals with Harvey escaping Arkham. The outfit could be from the previous time he was caught.

Added DiffLines:

*** Actually, in Schumacher's Gotham, crime seems to be even ''worse'' than Burton's. In both movies, the city's gang problem seems to be totally out of control, with small armies of weird, neon thugs overrunning entire blocks.

Added DiffLines:

** It's completely possible that the card doesn't trace back to an individual person. It's not uncommon for businesses and organizations have bank or credit cards the same as a personal account would, and with Batman's trademark resourcefulness, money could change hands a dozen times between Bruce or Wayne Enterprises and "the Batman Fund."

Added DiffLines:

** A better question is: Why ''didn't'' they find out? It was such an obvious hideout, you'd have to be stupid not to realize he was in there.


*** What feral women? All I could see in that scene was a man and woman that had a chain connecting their collars. Were they before that part and I just missed it?



** The whole thing would be ''almost'' acceptable if he, as in Batman, as in ''the only man in the world with technology that can reverse the effects of the freeze ray'', had stayed around to thaw out the frozen guests instead of leaving it to a clueless Gordon.


** Also, please note that he calls himself "Mr Freeze" instead of "Dr Fries". He feels that he has disgraced his profession and won't use his title of Doctor.

Added DiffLines:

** Batman promised Freeze he'd have his wife moved to the Arkham labs so he could continue his research to cure her, meaning he's be walking between his cell and the labs constantly. Freeze needed a 50 below zero environment to survive; no-one else could survive at such a temperature, and his suit was his only means to walk around freely AND stay at 50 below, so if he was to continue his research, he would need his suit.

Added DiffLines:

** there are a few reasons for this, even if they are a bit of a stretch. First, this was the first time someone had survived Ivy's kiss and she was outsmarted by Robin. He tricked her into revealing her plan, and to add insult to injury he basically stole a kiss from her. She was too angry and humiliated to think straight and shoved him to let out her anger. Also, she appears to be NotGoodWithRejection. When Batman resisted her charms she tried to have Bane kill him so she could focus on Robin. Since Robin revealed he's seen through her charms she "breaks up with him" by shoving him into the pond to drown him instead of just kissing him again.
