Special Edition of the Damned

When I saw the announcement of two-disc special editions of all the Batman movies, I couldn't wait to see what they had planned for Batman and Robin. For obvious reasons, really terrible movies don't usually get the special-edition treatment. But because it's part of a series, Batman and Robin will recieve the puff pieces and everyone-was-brilliant commentary tracks usually reserved for good or at least passible movies:

- Entitled Batman Unbound

Additional Scene: Alfred's Lost Love

A whole featurette on makeup for a non-horror movie? A making-of puff piece called "Batman Unbound?" I am so there. And Joel Schumacher's inevitable attempt to pretend he did something non-putrid should make a great entry for the Onion's "Commentary Tracks of the Damned" series.
