Batman is wrongly implicated in a series of murders of mob bosses actually done by a new vigilante assassin.
Most of the movie is based on the graphic novels "Batman: Year One" and "Batman: Year Two". The flashback to Batman's first night of crime-fighting, donning a jacket and ski-hat is parallel to book one of "Year One". The design and concept of the Phantasm was derived from the Reaper, the primary villain of "Year Two".

During Batman and Joker's fight, Batman kicks out one of Joker's teeth, later on when Joker puts on his jet pack and starts to take off he has all of his teeth, but in the next shot his tooth is missing again.
The UK video version was originally cut (for category) by 3 seconds to remove the use of throwing stars in the scene where Bruce fights off bank robbers. The new DVD version is uncut, and maintains the 'PG' certificate.
