Yup. Batman & Robin is many things, but it was also somewhat surprising in that it had its prime villain, Mr. Freeze get captured during the second major action sequence and hauled off to Arkham Asylum. I distinctly remember being surprised by this somewhat unorthodox plot turn, as at that time I couldn't remember a major action picture which had its prime villain get nabbed at the hour mark. Alas, not much came of it. Yes his escape cost the lives of two guards, but otherwise it didn't quite follow the now-standard pattern. Mr. Freeze and Batman didn't have any heart-to-heart chit-chat at that point, he only busted out with the unexpected and unsolicited help of Poison Ivy, and Victor Freeze most certainly did *not* plan to get caught the whole time. But for what it's worth, Joel Schumacher's Batman and Robin played a somewhat fresh card, even if it didn't really know what to do with it. Despite its reputation as everything that modern superhero cinema wants to avoid, it did plant a seed for what's now pretty much standard practice in the new era of serious and respectable superhero films.
In today's modern superhero cinema, be it The Avengers, The Dark Knight, Skyfall, and now apparently Star Trek Into Darkness, it's absolutely standard practice for the villain to allow himself to get caught as part of his intricate evil plan, preferably with a glass prison and/or an attempt at evil profundities and high-end collateral damage. Well, let us raise our chilled glass to Batman and Robin. Mr. Freeze may not have been 'planning this for years!', but mainstream action tentpoles have been stealing his play for the last several years anyway.
