Batman Returns

In this episode, we ponder whether Tim Burton’s distinctive style might have reached its zenith in Batman Returns. Could Ashley Coffin’s affinity for blue eyeshadow have been inspired by none other than this film’s iteration of Catwoman? And we’ll delve into the puzzling choices of Gotham’s most eligible bachelor, Bruce Wayne, including his less-than-ideal first date conversation topics.

Paul and Ashley are back to dissect Batman Returns with me, as we navigate through the snowy streets of Gotham during Christmas. We’ll analyze the darker tones of Burton’s sequel, mull over Michelle Pfeiffer’s iconic performance as Catwoman, and debate whether Michael Keaton’s Batman still holds up as our definitive Dark Knight.

Riki Hayashi and Matthew Fox explore the ethical questions from the stories geeks love—superheroes, sci-fi, anime, fantasy, video games, and so much more.
