Author Y. M. Nelson and guest Jen Graybeal review the movie The Batman starring Robert Pattinson for the “DCTV and Movie reviews” miniseries. In this miniseries, we review current TV shows and movies with DC Comics superheroes.

We go in-depth about the noir characteristics of the film, our fave Batmans through the years, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, and we even talk about DCU in comparison to the MCU before we give The Batman a star rating.

Note** If you don’t want to be spoiled, go straight to the star ratings chapter (if chapters are available on your podcast provider), listen, then come back after you’ve watched for the review!

In this episode, we talk about:

  • What we first thought when we were watching it
  • The Batman as a noir film
  • Marvel’s MCU v. DC’s DCU
  • Batman franchises over the years
  • The evolution of Catwoman in the movies
  • The producer/Director’s vision and the source material (the comics)
  • Easter Eggs
  • What we would rate the show
