A lot of the runtime of “Batman Endlessly” is devoted to the characters determining their identities. Everyone seems to be coping with some form of id disaster, whether or not it is Dick Grayson mourning his dad and mom and changing into Robin or Two-Face (Tommy Lee Jones) simply being Two-Face. There are a number of binaries offered all through the flick, each thematically and visually, and in the long run a lot of the characters select to interrupt them or embrace each not directly. Batman and Robin study to work collectively, Dick turns into Robin, Bruce realizes he may be Batman and Bruce Wayne, and extra.
Bruce’s sexuality is rarely explicitly mentioned in “Batman Endlessly,” despite the fact that Dr. Meridian tries to psychoanalyze him and is a giant fan of Freud. The 2 have a enjoyable little tryst through which she can’t determine whether or not she’s extra interested in Batman or Bruce Wayne (one other binary selection!), but it surely’s flirtation and kisses, little extra. He would not ever kiss Dick, however he cares about him deeply, and that care may very well be extra than simply platonic. Within the above-mentioned climax, the Riddler (Jim Carrey) forces Batman to decide on between Robin and Dr. Meridian. That would signify not solely the character’s genders, however Dr. Meridian as his “straight” life as Bruce Wayne, and Robin as his “closeted” life as Batman. He finally ends up saving them each, as a result of he is Batman, and in the long run he reconciles that he would not have to surrender one life or the opposite, even when he is not able to be open about each identities simply but.
