Batman 2 was expected to repeat the success of the first film – but it took a little longer to come together than planned, and went a bit darker too
1992's Batman Returns saw Tim Burton return to Gotham City, but more on his own terms. However, that didn't necessarily mean things were much easier for him. Meanwhile, 1999's Wild Wild West was, at the time, the most expensive blockbuster the studio had ever produced. And yet even before its release, it seems that Warner Bros was fast losing faith with it.
