Batman is a 1989 film, directed by Tim Burton and starring Jack Nicholson as the Joker and Michael Keaton in the title role.

The film was heavily influenced by the original Golden Age appearances of Batman in Detective Comics and the first Batman issues, with more influences from late 1970s comics and mid-1980s comics, such as The Dark Knight Returns, Batman: Year One, and Batman: The Killing Joke.

The film was very well received and an immense success. The film is now considered one of the modern prototypes of the superhero film genre. It was followed by three sequels; Batman Returns in 1992, Batman Forever in 1995, and Batman & Robin in 1997. It also inspired Batman: The Animated Series.
