Batman 1989 DELETED Scenes - RARE Storyboards & Photos! (feat. Living in Crime Alley's Rob Ayling)



We return to Batman 1989 to cover the storyboards of deleted scenes/subplots! Check out Robin's deleted origin, learn Alexander Knox's original role in creating a vital part of the Batman mythos, and check out the alternate cathedral confrontation where Joker has a different (and arguably cooler) death!
