You have to remember this was what almost 25 years ago?
Ppl then expected the sequel to things to be BIGGER and more exciting than the first
Granted burton went over board a little on returns but was very subservient in the original to the character of batman and the story. While its clearly a burton style, it was a subdued burton style.
That is jmo
ETA: and like I said earlier, when a film made for 49 million grosses 411 million the studio is gonna give that director almost anything he wants to do in a sequel IMO
