Batman By The Numbers: The Dark Knight 15th Anniversary

Check out Pop Break Today Feed of The Pop Break Podcast Network — on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and Anchor.

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.

In 2008, Christopher Nolan made a movie that would not only make him a legend for years to come, but it also happens to be widely considered by many as the greatest comic book movie ever made – The Dark Knight.  Does it still hold that title fifteen years later?  That’s one of the many topics this month’s panel discuss as they celebrate fifteen glorious years of The Dark Knight.

Daniel is joined by Editor-in-Chief of the popbreak.com, Bill Bodkin, and as this is an anniversary episode, Aaron Sarnecky of the Anniversary Brothers Podcast makes his Batman by the Numbers debut.

If you love The Dark Knight (and who doesn’t?), this is your episode.  Favorite scenes.  Crowd pleasing moments.  Heath Ledger praise.  It’s all there.  For a movie that’s been dissected maybe more than any other film of the last fifteen years, the panel have a lot of fun finding new ways to talk about this masterpiece, and even give some criticisms of the film!

And for a few bonus topics, the group also get into some general superhero talk, where The Dark Knight ranks in the Nolan pantheon, and discuss the influence this movie did, and did not have on the superhero genre, and the film industry at large.

What else is there to say, except for…”WHY SO SERIOUS?”

The Dark Knight is now streaming on MAX.

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.
