Tim Burton’s Batman adaptations starred Michael Keaton as the Caped Crusader, who actually killed a surprising amount of people in his two movies.

Michael Keaton is regarded as one of the greatest menacing Caped Crusaders, albeit using some controversial fighting tactics, so how many people did he actually kill in Batman and Batman Returns? Tim Burton and Michael Keaton’s team-up was extremely controversial among comic-book fans who didn’t believe the Pee-wee’s Big Adventure director and comedy actor would understand the nuances of Bruce Wayne.
