Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (1993) feat. Lindsay Traves
Our Angel of Death awaits as we enter the dark streets of Gotham City to discuss the first (and only?) Batman slasher film Batman: Mask of the Phantasm! Joining us for the discussion is Batman expert (and all-around swell gal) Lindsay Traves!
We'll delve into the film's rushed production and failure at the box office. Joe compares the Bruce/Andrea romance to a similar one in On Her Majesty's Secret Service and Lindsay gives her reading on the romantic (or sexual?) relationship between Batman and the Joker.
We'll also highlight the importance of having an openly gay actor (Kevin Conroy) voice Batman, lament the inherent gatekeep-iness of comics and have a grand ol' time pitching the live-action casting of Andrea Beaumont.
Plus, Joker = horror (and plenty of Mark Hamill praise), balaclavas vs. bolas, Tia Carrere and Trace confesses one of his incredibly embarrassing high school horror stories. Oh, and masturbating to video game characters, because why not?
