This is the first film made in Dolby Digital.

Over 50% of the Warner Brothers lot was taken up by Gotham City sets.

Casting director Marion Dougherty has said that Tim Burton was uncomfortable with casting Christopher Walken as Max Shreck. When she asked him why, he said, "Because that man scares the hell out of me." However, the decision must have ultimately grown on Burton, as Walken was cast again in Sleepy Hollow (1999). He was also cast to play Brainiac in the aborted Superman Lives project.

Danny DeVito, who plays The Penguin, stayed in character between takes.
