Batman Returns

Answer: Not intentionally, the rockets were aimed at the abandoned arctic zoo structure, not at the Penguin himself. He was caught in the crossfire.

Question: How did Penguin assemble his gang if he had never left the sewers?

Answer: He's left the sewers before. In a scene where Bruce is reading through old articles, the film itself blatantly implies that at one point in his life, he was taken in by a traveling circus and advertised as the "aquatic bird boy", which is where he met most of his gang. He retreated back to the sewers after children went missing, and he was blamed. The implication being that he either kidnapped or killed children out of rage for having what he never had - a family.

Plot hole: When The Penguin is controlling the Batmobile, Batman punches through the floor to take off the transmitter. We still see a video feed of The Penguin. Why? Batman pulled off the transmitter, so there is no reason for there to still be a video feed.

Selina Kyle: Ok, Intimidate me, bully me if it makes you feel big. I mean it's not like you can just kill me...
Max Shreck: Actually, it's a lot like that.

Trivia: Harvey Dent, who would later become Two Face, was originally going to be in this film instead of Max Schreck. The plan was to have Catwoman turn him into Two Face the same way she ended up killing Schreck, except of course Dent obviously would've survived and become Two Face.
