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.
We go back to the animated well once again, but this time, it’s one Daniel enthusiastically likes! Finally. In honor of Halloween, we discuss the 2021 two-part adaptation of one of the most heralded Batman comics of all-time – Batman: The Long Halloween.
As this is a significant Batman story, Daniel is joined by a very special guest; making his Batman-by-the-Numbers debut, Perry Constantine, host of the Superhero Cinephiles podcast, comes on to chat some Batman. Perry also has a new comics project, Paragons of Earth, which he discusses in more depth at the end of the show, so stay tuned for that!
Perry and Daniel discuss all topics and themes Long Halloween, focusing on the two-part movie, but they also talk about the comic’s place in Batman history, and the influence it’s had on modern day Batman movies.Do they agree if the film was a worthy adaptation? Did they like the changes made from the original comic? Does Daniel get bent out of shape about a certain villain who gets the shaft yet again?? (Probably)
If this is one of your favorite Batman stories, you’re in for a fantastic conversation! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
