Burton originally did not want to direct another Batman film. Warner Bros. developed a script with Sam Hamm which had the Penguin and Catwoman going after hidden treasure. Burton agreed to return after they granted him more creative control and replaced Hamm with Daniel Waters. After a falling out, Waters was removed from the project and Wesley Strick was chosen to do an uncredited rewrite shortly before filming. This included normalizing dialogue, fleshing out the Penguin’s motivations and master plan and removing scenes due to budget concerns. Strick continued working as the on-set writer all through filming, an early trailer credited Strick as co-screenwriter with Waters having sole story credit but after a dispute from Hamm he received no credit whatsoever. Annette Bening was originally cast as Catwoman but became pregnant and was replaced with Pfeiffer.
Batman Returns was released on June 19, 1992. The film was nominated for Academy Awards for Best Visual Effects and Best Makeup, as well as two BAFTA awards. Its budget was $80 million and it grossed $266.8 million worldwide, making the film a financial success. The film received positive reviews, with critics praising its action sequences, performances, Danny Elfman’s score, effects, and villains, although its dark tone was heavily criticized. Keaton considered doing a third film with director Joel Schumacher, Rene Russo was cast as the love interest. However, after negations with Keaton fell through it was decided to cast younger actors to help refresh the franchise. Warner Bros. attributed the second film’s failure to outgross its predecessor with the negatively-received dark tone, ultimately led to the company adopting a lighter, more family-friendly tone for the series, beginning with the sequel Batman Forever.
