Notes

  • Batman's statement that "this is why Superman works alone" implies the existence of a Superman in the same universe, though no details are known about him. Tim Burton had intended to direct Superman Lives before pulling out of the project.
  • Also unclear is what the appearance of the first Burtonverse Batmobile in the Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman episode "Don't Tug on Superman's Cape" means for the Burtonverse.
  • The Catwoman movie of 2004 suggests that it also takes place in the Burtonverse, with one of the pictures of previous Catwomen that Patience Phillips sees is that of Selina Kyle. However, the exact significance of this for continuity is uncertain as of now.
