"Batman Returns” is the iconic 1992 superhero film where Horror Queers can go for Christmas content. In both aesthetic and legacy, the sexy silhouettes, childhood nightmare foder, and commercial success could only be the product of Tim Burton’s fantastic stylings. In this sequel, as Batman inevitably returns to battle the joint efforts of the monstrous Penguin (Danny DeVito) and businessman Max Shreck (Christopher Walken) we see the resulting rise of Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer).
Detailing Pfeiffer’s effortless prowess and iconic performance in the role, Matt is joined by the one and only, writer and podcaster, Danny Pellegrino, for the season finale of the HBO Max Movie Club. There is no better way to end season two on a high note than recounting Pfeiffer’s iconic villain performance, the film’s major marketing campaign, and ultimately the dark but memorable childhood staple for so many.
Watch on HBO Max: “Batman Returns” until December 31, 2022
