Guys Of A Certain Age

The Year of The Bat

July 29, 2019

It's bat time again...the year of the bat...yet another bat-iversary that The Guys are happy to celebrate. 

This time it's the 30th anniversary of the Tim Burton/Micheal Keaton Batman movie, and The Guys take the opportunity to discuss an article hailing the multitude of ways this movie ushered in the age of superhero movies that followed.  

(That's a long bat-sentence, isn't it?) Even Robbie's Geek of the Week is batty.  Or is it Robbie that's batty? Listen to find out, and as always... if you love it, we'd love it if you'd bat-subscribe, bat-share, and bat-rate us with all 5 stars.  

 

SHOW NOTES

The cool storyboarded video from the Burton Batman movie that would ahem intrigued Robin. Starring Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill

From the page: The sequence introducing the Boy Wonder - ultimately cut before filming began - was taken from an early draft of the 1989 'Batman' movie, put together using original pre-production storyboards and voiced by B:TAS's Kevin Conroy (Batman) and Mark Hamill (the Joker).
