    For me, it all started when i was 7 when i saw the movie 5 times in theaters, watched the campy 60's show in reruns on Family Channel, had the merchandise, had the toys, ate the cereal, ate the cookies, had the Taco Bell cups and even read my big brothers DC comics as i was converted into a Batman fan since. I even had Batman Returns merchandise, saw BR 4 times in theaters and watched the animated show religiously including taping every episode when i was 10.

    I'm guessing from your mention of batman returns that by "the movie" you mean the 1989 one? (There's been a lot of batman movies, so you really need to be more specific.)

    I've been a batman fan for literally longer than I can remember, for at least a decade before the '89 movie came out. I know I was a fan & had been a fan for a while by the time i was 4, don't know precisely how long though. I had a batman battery tester, watched reruns of the 60s show, and several batman cartoons (such as superfriends & filmation's "new adventures".

    As long as I can remember. 1989's Batman was my favorite movie as a little kid. Batman has and probably always will be my favorite super hero even though he's not super.

    I'd say the mid 90's. I was always aware of Batman, just never followed it. But then while hanging out at my friend's house one afternoon, he popped on Batman:TAS and ever since then I was hooked.

    Since I saw the live series from the sixties with Adam West and Burt Ward. Sooo...eleven years now. Watched all the movies from 1989 to now (except Batman Forever). Will watch that sooner or later.

    When I was a kid, I was a big fan of the Super Powers figures. I had just about all of them. I loved, and still have, the Super Powers Batmobile. I think that started the fandom. Then, of course, the 1989 movie came out. I have the cards, diecast vehicles, I had the figures, the cereal, and the VHS. Later that year, my dad was working in the city. He would often bring me home things he picked up on the way back home. One of those things were the 4 part Mudpack storyline in Detective Comics, where Batman fought a group of 4 different Clayfaces.

    Since then, I'm still a huge fan of the Tim Burton Batman movies. I have the blu-ray set and watch it constantly. Even Batman And Robin. Sure, it's a bad movie, but it's fun to watch.

    I would have to say during the craze of the first keaton and Nicholson film it was great. I started seeing all my freinds wiht the iconic black shirt and gold symbol, also toys. I remember someone even having shoes. Then came the day my dad announced we were going to see it, awwww awesome have been fan since. I never really was a fan of the Adam West series my dad grew up with though. just can't get into it.

    I just love the Tim Burton films. I also even like Batman Forever despite the hate for it by others.

    I was born in 85' and my dad was a Bat-fan from a few years before that. You could say I was born into the Batman universe. Seen all the movies in theaters. Got the toys, games, breakfast cereals, pajamas and comics most importantly.

    I was about 8 years old when I started watching the cartoon series and it was the greatest show and I'm a girl and I don't know of many girl who watch shows like Batman. Later watched the old live action series and also liked it especially the fight scenes where there would be words on the screen like Pow! Ka-Bam! Whammo! And them came the movie Batman and Robin which I saw on TV back when we got the Pay-Per-View channels. I didn't see the first Batman movie until I was 14 and the other ones later followed and I had to keep them hidden form my sister because she used to take my movies that I rented and watch them and never give them back. I also remember we got Batman toys in our kids meals from McDonalds one you pushed down and it zoomed across the floor and the other one was a launcher. I also remember the pogs that we also got I think those too came from McDonalds. I now own all four Batman movies in one set and I still like them.

    Can't remember exactly how young I was, but I had been reading some of the comics and played the Batman and Robin video game on PS1. Then my brother showed me the old Adam West series.

    Who else saw Batman 1989 on the big screen in the 80's? I did when i was 7 about 5 times and what an experience it was, i'm sure it converted kids back then to become Batman fans.
