Batman Returns

"The Bat, the Cat, the Penguin."

Tim Burton's Batman sequel came to the screen three years after the first film and scored an even bigger opening at the box office. Batman Returns finds Batman facing off against three of Gotham city's latest villains; The Penguin, Catwoman and Max Shreck. Batman Returns uses the three villains to reveal different parts of Batman's own psychology.

Oswald Cobblepot was the son of a wealthy Gotham couple who threw him into the sewer when he was an infant. After being rescued by penguins, Oswald survives and 30 years later becomes a notorious criminal known as The Penguin. The Penguin kidnaps millionaire Max Shreck and blackmails him with evidence of his corporate crimes in order to make Shreck help him leave the sewer and become a member of Gotham's elite society. The Penguin hatches a plot to have the Mayors child kidnapped so he can return the child and look like a hero in Gotham's eyes.

Selina Kyle is Shreck's secretary. She discovers one of Shrecks crooked plans which involves draining power from Gotham City. When Schreck finds out he pushes Selina out of a window to cover his tracks. She survives but suffers a psychotic breakdown and vows to get revenge on Shreck by taking on the persona of a catsuit wearing burglar, Catwoman. Meanwhile Shreck tried to make The Penguin Gotham's mayor so that he can carry out his power draining plans.

Batman has his hands full trying to protect Gotham from The Penguin's gang and Catwoman. Catwoman begins to fall in love with Batman's secret alter-ego Bruce Wayne while trying to help The Penguin kill Batman. Batman must expose The Penguin's plans to fool Gotham into making him mayor and stop a plot to launch missiles around Gotham using mind-controlled penguins before it's too late. To complicate matters further Bruce Wayne will have to find out of Selina still be love struck if she finds out that he is the very Batman she is working to rid Gotham of.
