Now it’s time to actually get into the vacation spirit with what could also be one of many kinkiest (and queerest) superhero movies of all time: Tim Burton‘s Batman Returns!
Within the movie, the monstrous Penguin (Danny DeVito) joins up with depraved shock-headed businessman Max Shreck (Christopher Walken) to topple the Batman (Michael Keaton) as soon as and for all. However when Shreck’s timid assistant, Selina Kyle (Michelle Pfeiffer), finds out, and Shreck tries to kill her, she is remodeled into Catwoman. She groups up with the Penguin and Shreck to destroy Batman, however sparks fly unexpectedly when she confronts the caped crusader.
