Fridge Brilliance

  • The change of the Batsuit from the organic look of Batman to the armoured look of Batman Returns? Mere stylistic choice? Not so fast! In the first movie Batman is feared as being a giant bat, a literal supernatural monster. It's only when crooks get a good look at him and realize it's body armour do they realize that he's human. What helps with the illusion? The sculpted muscles on the suit. They hide nothing the armour aspect completely in favour of getting that extra fear value. But at the end of the movie Batman is publicly declared a hero and the illusion is lost. So what does he do? He scraps the "giant bat" look and dons a more mechanical and armoured looking suit, and it can be assumed with the larger plates that it offers a lot more protection.
  • This one is fairly obvious, but still deserves a mention. Toward the end of the film, Shreck begins shooting Catwoman after she taunts him to "finish her off", having already been killed three times (by him, the Penguin and Batman, respectively). He empties the gun on her, ending Lives #4, 5, 6 and 7, but not actually killing her. She gives him a Kiss of Death with a taser and an electric generator, frying them both. That's eight lives. At the end of the movie, we see that Catwoman is still alive. She still has one life left.

Fridge Horror

  • While researching the Red Triangle Gang, Bruce learns that at the same time their freakshow included an "aquatic birdy boy" in their lineup, numerous reports of missing children would show up in whatever town the circus was visiting, implying that the Penguin has been murdering children all his life.
  • Somewhere closer to Fridge Brilliance than usual: The scene of the Cobblepot parents staring blankly, then draining their martinis in unison after the thing in the box eats a small animal may not have been just another step in the montage of his troubled young days, but them boozing themselves up for the very next scene when they go out to toss him off a bridge. - Cas Warner
    • Related to the above: The very similar treatment of the gated-off "Cobblepot" household and the no-name zoo later on speak to just how similar both places really are. - Cas Warner Returns
