Batman Forever

Corrected entry: How did Bruce Wayne get planning permission to lay miles of metre-wide metallic pipe complete with flourescent lighting, and which presumably needs some sort of regular maintenance, beneath Gotham's busiest streets, skyscrapers, office buildings, traffic spots etc. The logistics involved do not bear thinking about and even if he used city hall connections and called in favours from old friends (which he would certainly be able to do being a billionaire businessman) he would need a bloody good reason to rip up half of Gotham's streets. He obviously didn't say it was so he could get to the batcave quickly so how on earth did he do it without anyone asking awkward questions? Surely just hiding a batsuit and 'spare' batmobile in a vault in the basement of Wayne Enterprises would be easier?

Correction: Tunnels or pipes can be laid without need of tearing up streets. Knowing from previous movies Batman's love of the sewers, it is possible that the tube goes through along unused section, or it used to be a section of sewer pipe. We aren't given many details about this particular contraption, but is it very possible that it could exist.

Sol Parker

Corrected entry: Riddler's big riddle for Batman is "Who will he save...Chase or Robin". How did Riddler know Robin exsisted? Didn't Dick just put on the robin suit 5 minutes earlier?

Correction: You would think that he would get this information when they captured Robin.

Bruce Minnick

Corrected entry: In the first Batman movie Harvey Dent was black, but this time he's played by Tommy Lee Jones who is white.

Correction: This keeps being submitted over and over again - I really don't think it's valid, as it seems to be based on his skin colour, which shouldn't matter any more than other distinguishing characteristics. If this is a "mistake" then it's also a mistake that Batman used to be played by Michael Keaton but in this film was played by Val Kilmer - just a different actor playing the same part, so what's the big deal?

Corrected entry: When Chris O'Donnell is doing his laundry he is wearing a black t-shirt but when he puts an item of clothing onto the line it is moved along the line by someone wearing a grey sweater. When the camera goes back to Chris O Donnell he is still wearing the black t-shirt.

Correction: What you are seeing is really Chris O'Donnell's foot, not his hand. He is doing his laundry in a "unique" way by kicking it down the line. As you will see, he is wearing gray sweatpants.

Corrected entry: More curiosity than goof - all throughout the movie, Batman keeps nagging Robin that he should not kill Two-Face - it won't bring back his parents and will make him kill again, and again... But at the end of the movie, Batman has put an ample amount of change in his pockets (utility belt?) just to fool Two-Face to grab for his coin amongst the change, and...well, you know what happened. What kind of example is this for Robin? Surely if he could reach for his change, he could have reached any number of devices from his utility belt to contain, not kill, Two-Face. Also keep in mind that Harvey Dent (who became Two-Face) was a friend of Bruce Wayne, which adds to the coldness of his death.

Correction: The coin trick wasn't meant to kill Two Face - just distract him so Batman could capture him. However, Two Face panicked and did himself in.

Corrected entry: As Chris O'Donnell (Dick Grayson) packs to leave Wayne Manor, Alfred calls him Master Chris instead of Dick.

Correction: He calls him Master Grayson.

Corrected entry: Early on in the film, Bruce Wayne descends to the Batcave in a pod that travels at a very high speed (the display projected onto his face proves this), and the journey takes about 10 seconds, whereas later on the Cave can be reached by way of a short flight of steps (Dick Grayson falls down them). That must have been a very long route taken by the pod.

Correction: The pod was coming from Wayne Enterprises (across town one would assume) and NOT from Wayne Manor.

Corrected entry: Near the end of the movie, the Riddler gives Batman two choices; he can save the woman he loves, or he can save his partner. You can clearly see that both of them have tape over their mouths. Batman saves the doctor, and peels the tape away from her face. Then the camera cuts to Robin, and he has no tape over his mouth. If Batman didn't save him yet, and Robin's hands are tied, where did the tape go?

Correction: It's not tape, it's some sort of cloth, tied at the back. As he's falling, we can see that it's fallen around his neck.

Revealing mistake: When Two Face and Riddler enter Wayne Manor, and knock Alfred down. Alfred, unconscious, pushes the dinner tray aside, so the thugs can carry him into the closet. (01:27:55)

Trivia: In the brief time that Tim Burton was still considering doing a third Batman film, Riddler was the only villain that he planned on using. The idea of using Two-Face did not come up until Joel Schumacher joined the project.
