Batman Returns - A Liveblog Through Nostalgia
Tim Burton’s Batman film is unarguably considered a masterpiece. For many, it is considered the best Batman film ever made. Batman Returns on the other hand does not get spoken about nearly as much. I grew up with this movieand the maelstrom of movie tie-in merchandise is emblazoned into my brain. Trading cards, toys, Happy Meals, action figures, comic books, advertisements, commemorative jelly jars, glasses from fast food restaurants, cassette tape soundtracks, lithographic bookmarks, clothing, stickers, and posters were just a few of the items my brother and I personally had. I distinctly remember the little holographic sticker of the Batman logo being on dozens of collectibles. Just this year, I saw party supplies featuring the movie font and the Michael Keaton’s face in a discount store in Lincolnton, NC.
