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 first and 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.
There is no topic that personifies the title “Batman by the Numbers” more than this rankings episode – the Batman actors. Yes. We are ranking all the actors who have donned the cape and cowl. In what is our biggest rankings discussion since the Batman movies back in our pilot episode, we decided to free up some space in the podcasting cave for some back up.
Daniel is joined by not only Batman by the Numbers regulars Alex Marcus and Bill Bodkin, but by fellow bat fanatics Allie Nelson and Tyler McCarthy of the Not Couples Podcast, and Pop Break newcomer, Josh Edmunds. The cave will be full of lively and fun debate as these panel members duke it over Michael Keaton, Ben Affleck, Will Arnett, and all the rest in this jam-packed episode.
With nine Batman actors to rank, you can bet your bat credit card everyone has their hot-takes fueled up in the Tumbler ready to go. With five other panelists, will Daniel finally find an ally on Affleck’s Bat performance, or continue to face mock and ridicule for his love of BvS? (probably the latter). How do the comedic versions of the character (West and Arnett) fare into these rankings? Does Robert Pattinson make a run at the top only one Bat movie in? And of course, who will finish #1???
For anyone who loves Batman as much as these six panelists do, and has debated many times with their friends on who the best Batman is, this is a MUST listen to episode. Period.
