Re: The Official Batman (1989) Thread - Part 3
^Interesting. Never knew the story behind that moment in the comic adaptation.
But I read somewhere in an old Starlog magazine with an interview with Robert Wuhl or one of the cast & crew behind the scenes. Saying his character was supposed to be killed, but Burton and co. liked his character so much that they decided to let him live.
Very interesting alternative leading to the finale. I do sometimes wonder how Batman got off that Cathedral in the final cut. Not to mention how he got away from Gordon and the police force. Creating a distraction makes perfect sense.
