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.

Podcast Editor Alex Marcus joins Daniel once again, as the crew returns to the animated realm to review 2018’s anime, Batman Ninja.  As this is an anime movie, we threw up the signal and called upon a couple experts – the cohosts of the Anime x Pop Podcast, Josh Sarnecky (also co-host of the Anniversary Brothers Podcast), and Amanda Rivas (also frequent co-host and guest on the Socially Distanced podcast).

Josh and Amanda lend their expertise to tell us how this fares as an anime movie, as Daniel and Alex have no idea what’s going on.  Aside from that, we delve into how well this movie utilizes the world of Batman, specifically its villains, the visual style, and go off on a Robin tangent – why can’t Batman movies get Robin right!

Join us for this second trip into the animated world, as Daniel just wants this to be better than Batman: The Doom that Came to Gotham (did he get his wish?), and listen to Alex wax poetically on the comedic chops of one Alfred Pennyworth.

Is the Batman anime experiment worth a recommendation…LISTEN RIGHT HERE TO FIND OUT!

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.
