Episode 123: Batman (1966)

Joe, James and Rhys slide down the pod-pole into the pod-cave this week to discuss one of the earliest superhero films ever - 1966's Batman: The Movie. They discuss the cultural impact of the TV series that birthed it, how it affected Batman's later adaptations, and how the film plays watching it today. They also cover the latest comic book movie news, James recommends some comics, and Joe and James battle it out over the pitch.
