The Filmlings – Holy Reboot, Batman! Feat. Aaron JohnsonPosted: February 21, 2017
What makes sound, and is informative?
The Filmlings film analysis podcast!
Alex and Jonathan welcome their first guest, Aaron Johnson, to the podcast to talk about four major reboots of the cinematic portrayal of Batman: Batman: The Movie (1966), Batman (1989), Batman Begins (2005), and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016). We talk about how the comics influence the films (and vice versa), changing visual styles, and the steady darkening of tone over time.
