There’s arguably no superhero in existence that has been reimagined, redefined, or reinterpreted more than Batman.  No matter how many times he’s been rebooted, audiences are always willing to come back to Gotham City’s greatest defender.  With so much Bat content out there, there’s plenty to dissect, analyze, and of course, rank!  This podcast is dedicated to a surgical evaluation of Batman’s history, with a focus on ranking several topics in the world of Batman, among other classic Bat themes and characters.

Join host Daniel Cohen, Pop Break’s former Film Editor and Resident Bat-Maven, as he brings on several guests every month to share his passion for the one and only Dark Knight.  From Adam West to Robert Pattinson, no bat stone will be left unturned.  Bottom-line: If you’re a Batman fan, this is required listening.

Batman fighting demons, spirits, sorcery, and monsters?  Oh my!  It happened.  The Batman by the Numbers Podcast goes into uncharted waters this month.  While Batman movies are typically relegated to grounded, gritty crime dramas, there are comics where Batman ventures into the supernatural, and even horror.  As a great man once said, “You want to get nuts!  Let’s get nuts!”  That’s what Batman: The Doom that Came to Gotham is, the new animated movie from DC.

Daniel calls upon the spirit world to summon Podcast Editor Alex Marcus and Pop Break contributor Tom Moore, making his Batman by the Numbers debut, to help him decipher this very odd, weird Batman movie adapted from the Elseworlds comic of the same name that takes place in the 1920s.

They debate whether or not the premise holds strong, how well classic Batman villains are interwoven into the story, discuss the viability of the Batman character being placed in the horror genre, and stack it up to other DC animated movies.

If you’re interested in a Batman story that takes place in the 1920s with a diversion to Antarctica with Batman fighting demons from another world, then this is the Batman movie you’ve been waiting for!

Daniel Cohen likes movies and bagels, and that’s pretty much it. Aside from writing Box Office predictions, Daniel hosts the monthly Batman by the Numbers Podcast on the Breakcast feed. Speaking of Batman, If Daniel was sprayed by Scarecrow's fear toxin, it would be watching Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen on a non-stop loop.
