Imo and James are back with a vengeance…and so is the famous caped crusader! They suit up (no nipples) to deliver judgement to Matt Reeves’ crime-thriller iteration of The Batman (2022), starring Robert Pattinson, Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, Andy Serkis, Colin Farrell, John Turturro, Peter Sarsgaard and Jayme Lawson.
With its hellish aesthetic and grunge vibe, does this reboot successfully cast a shadow over a franchise with an uneven cinema history, or is it as dim as its lighting design?
This is the first episode in a new season – entitled ‘The Season of the Bat’- discussing the highs, lows, and very lows of the Batman films, starting with Reeves’ recent version. We’ll discuss Burton’s originals, Schumacher’s follow-ups and the influential Nolan trilogy, with a few remarks on some of the notable animated features.
