    Allusions (3)

    • News Report Scene In the scene where Bruce Wayne is watching the news report on the Joker, there is a scene where you see a dramatization of the origin of the Joker. During this, they cut to a scene where Joker and his henchmen are breaking into Ace Chemical plant but through a shadow-shot. This is directly from the scene from the first Batman movie by Tim Burton where you see the henchman and Jack Napier (Joker) break into the office of the plant.

    • The Joker's Henchmen They are based on the Three Stooges, with identical hairstyles and voices (as well as the clumsiness). The one who was supposed to be Curly had the perfect voice when he said, "Let me at 'em, let me at 'em!"

    • Creeper: It's been done. When the Creeper holds the plastic Batman mask to his face, the face and cowl is rendered in the style of Adam West's portrayal of the Caped Crusader from the '60s Batman.
