Though filmed and produced after the second season, Batman: The Movie was released into theaters after the first season had finished it’s highly popular run on television. There apparently were plans to do a second movie that would have included the introduction of Yvonne Craig as Barbara Gordon/Batgirl before she appeared in the TV series, sadly those plans fell through.
The reason Julie Newmar (Catwoman) was not in the movie was simply because she had not been informed of it, she had already signed to star in another project and could not be released from her commitment before shooting began.
A big thanks to the always impressive IMP Awards site for the original theatrical poster up top as well as to Our Man In Havana over at YouTube for the trailer.
