Welcome to Week 2 of Batmonth! In Episode 123, we look into the movie series that sucked us in! Warner Bros. rebooted the Batman franchise with Tim Burton directing the first live action Batman in over 20 years. Batman (1989) gave us Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne/Batman and Jack Nicholson as the Joker. The sequel, Batman Returns, shows us the not-so-catburgler-like Michelle Pfeiffer kicking some Bat Ass and taking Names. We also learn that Liz has some difficulty relating to the character of Penguin…hmm, curious as to why that is?
We don’t stop there. We include for your listening pleasure the unparalleled Joel Schumacher films in the series as we discuss crotch-shots, man-nipples and… oh yeah… there is some Batman talk in there too.
Liz and Heather get a little silly reminiscing about the campy themes, leotards, and outfit-coordinated henchmen. I mean, how does one recruit an entire hench-mob team of hockey players to do ones bidding?

Reminder that Comicpalooza is coming up next month May 10-12 at the Houston GRB Convention Center — and we hope to see you there!
Last week they announced Grant Gustin (CW’s The Flash) and we are crazy excited to see him there. And we can’t forget that the always-naughty always-hilarious Captain Jack (aka John Barrowman) will be there! Heather has been brainstorming potential photo-op poses ever since she heard.
Next Book Club Selection
Also remember that we are reading STAR WARS: Trawn: Allainces for our book club in May. This is the second book in the Thrawn Series, and Timothy Zahn will also be a Comicpalooza. So much to look forward to!
