Batman Returns

Question: Why is Penguin's blood green?

Quantom X

Chosen answer: It is part of the mutation that caused his peculiar appearance.

Question: After she falls, what exactly makes Selyna Kyle go nuts? And what is she trying to do to her apartment?

Quantom X

Chosen answer: She just died, and came back to life. The shock drove her mad. She really isn't doing anything but destroying it.

Question: Why is Penguin coughing up green stuff before he dies? And is that his blood?

Quantom X

Chosen answer: It is suppose to be his blood.

MasterOfAll

Answer: It is poison from Shrek's factory.

Question: Who is Max Shreck from the comics, or is he even from the Batman comics?

Quantom X

Chosen answer: Shreck was a character created for the movie. The part was originally intended to be Harvey Dent, and the explosion at the end would scar him, paving the way for Two Face in a third movie, but the filmmakers opted for an original character instead. The name comes from a German actor who played Count Orlok in "Nosferatu".

Question: Is the fact that the penguins that pull Oswald Cobblepot to his watery grave are obviously not real penguins count as a mistake? They blend well into the background throughout the course of the movie up until this point where it is blatantly obvious.

THGhost

Chosen answer: Unless you can pinpoint something that proves they are not real penguins (exposed seams, zippers on the costumes, etc) it is not a mistake. They were indeed portrayed by 'little people' in penguin costumes, but to say that they 'just don't look real enough' would be an opinion, not a mistake.

Question: Maybe I missed something, but how exactly can The Penguin frame Max Shreck with the toxic waste and documents? In my opinion, I think that Gotham feared Penguin and would dismiss any evidence he had against Shreck. If someone could please enlighten me, I would be thankful.

Deidra Goins

Chosen answer: If the evidence is convincing enough, the Gotham authorities would believe it, regardless of the source.

Question: Why exactly does Penguin die? He just falls into his "moat" and comes out bleeding and dying. He wasn't hurt by the bats too much. He made reference to there being a "toxic" lagoon earlier in the movie, so are we to assume the water is polluted by toxic chemicals? And if so, how can the penguins swim in it without being hurt?

Chosen answer: The Penguin dies because he must have a cold environment to survive. At the end of the movie, his lair is in flames and Catwoman has blown up his air conditioner. He overheats and chokes to death. He's also no doubt sufferered injuries because of the rocket bombardment.

Answer: The penguin dies because of a) the polluted water (I always wondered why it doesn't poison the animals) and b) his wounds.

Question: Why must Penguin be in cold to survive?

Quantom X

Chosen answer: He doesn't need to be in cold to survive. He just prefers it since he's lived in the cold his entire life.

MasterOfAll

Question: One question answered on this movie says that Penguin died because he was out of the cold. Another says he just prefers cold. So does he need cold or not and why did he die?

Quantom X

Chosen answer: Penguin died due to the wounds he sustained during the missile explosions earlier.

Question: When the Red Triangle Circus approaches the Batmobile to attach the transmitter, we see one clown with the schematics of the Batmobile. How the hell did they get hold of such plans? I highly doubt Batman/Bruce Wayne would let such information get out.

Russel Denton

Chosen answer: In the novelization of the film, it is implied that Max Shreck used his money to bribe the original designer/fabricator (or one of their disgruntled employees) to give him the plans.

Question: When Selina/Catwoman has Schreck cornered, she says that him, the Penguin and Batman killed her leaving her with only six lives left. I understand that Schreck "killed" her by pushing her out a window and that the Penguin "killed" her when she fell through a greenhouse, but how could Batman have killed her? She landed safely in a truck filled with kitty litter after she got knocked off the roof, so that can't count.

Chosen answer: Apparently it did. Kitty litter isn't exactly soft.

Phixius

Question: What exactly happened to Vicki Vale between movies? She's mentioned a couple times in this one, but it's never said what happened.

Quantom X

Chosen answer: The same thing that happens to all the women in Bruce Wayne's life who learn his secret: She eventually realized that she would always be second to Batman, and never know if he'd make it home each night, so she left.

Captain Defenestrator

Question: Although Shreck's death makes the situation moot, why would Batman risk revealing his identity to Selina right in front of Shreck if his intention is for Shreck to go into police custody? Surely Shreck would have revealed Batman's identity had he survived.

Serious B

Chosen answer: It has always been in Batman's character to do everything it takes to save lives, any lives, no matter what. In Batman forever, during the circus scene, he immediately jumps to his feet and reveals who he is to Harvey Dent when Dent threatens everyone at the circus with a bomb (even though the noise of the crowd means nobody hears him, his intention was clear). At this point in the movie, Bruce cannot think of any other way to get through to Selina and show her that there is another choice besides revenge and murder. He's trying to save her from herself and save Shreck from her, giving up his identity and his secret is something he simply decides is worth it. That's who Batman is!
