The Joker (Jack Nicholson) takes Vicki Vale (Kim Basinger) up into the bell tower of a giant church. Batman (Michael Keaton) follows them and is met by a series of the Joker's men. Of course, Batman defeats them all and he eventually makes it to the Joker and supposedly knocks him over the side of the balcony, but ends up pulling both Batman and Vicki over the edge with him. With them holding onto a small brick section, the Joker makes his escape attempt on a helicopter. Batman uses a double edged grappling hook to tie the Joker's leg to a heavy, stone gargoyle. The gargoyle eventually breaks off, slowly pulling the Joker down the ladder and eventually to his death. Both Batman and Vicki escape and eventually the people of Gotham City give their trust to Batman.
