Among the top-grossing Batman films, 411 million dollars were earned by 1989’s Batman, $266 million by 1992’s Batman Returns, $336 million by 1995’s Batman Forever, and $238 million by 1997’s Batman & Robin. The Dark Knight, Christopher Nolan’s third Batman film, became the first film to reach $1 billion worldwide
