Having just watched Batman89 at a rewind festival, I've noticed how even though its got the same director, star etc. It feels really different from Returns. Batman Forever and Batman & Robin are virtual xeroxed copies, you can see similarities in all of it. Claw Island - Gotham Observatory, The Box unveiling - celebrity auction, Bank heist at the start - Museum heist. But Batman89 and Returns feel like completely different films. V. few scenes of Keaton in the manor. All action takes place in that tiny Gotham plaza set which looks like a set when compared to Gotham square they had in Batman89. Gotham feels like a different place?
