Batman Survives is a 2013 superhero film directed by TBA and produced by Tim Burton and Denise Di Novi, and is the ninth installment of Warner Bros. initial Batman film series following Batman Emerges with Michael Keaton, Marlon Wayans, Winona Ryder and TBA reprising their roles as Bruce Wayne / Batman, Dick Grayson / Nightwing, Barbara Gordon / Batgirl and Jason Todd / Robin respectively, and features the return of Jack Nicholson as as Jack Napier / The Joker, and introduces Margot Robbie as Harleen Quinzel / Harley Quinn
Much of the plot is derived from the Frank Miller graphic novel The Killing Joke, as well as the Death in the Family story arc. As such, it is the darkest chapter in the Tim Burton Batman saga. Following the death of Pat Hingle in 2009, the role of Commissioner Gordon was recast as TBA. The character of Alfred Pennysworth however, is written off as having passed away due to old age. Danny Elfman returns to score the movie.
It is followed by 2016's Batman Descends.
