Re: "New Look" vs Tv Show

I mean the comics managed to create plausible, compact devices that would fit in the cylinders. which were not out of range for prop makers. As I mentioned, the TV show's Batarang pouch was infrequently used, with the actors just reaching behind them, so the pouch really served no purpose, nor would...

Re: BAT 77 Episode #01 - The Gosh-Darned Bat Mite

Filmation dropped the ball on the 1977 Batman cartoon; the Action For Children's Television guidelines/restrictions were in full force, so unlike the 1968-70 Batman cartoons, the '77 version was completely free of physical violence (specifically punching) making the Duo no better than kids playing d...

"Emmy-winning"? Ho ho. The only way that show could get an Emmy would be if you threw one at the TV. :lol:

Nice room, and especially the poster of the Duo taken from the pilot.

Re: "New Look" vs Tv Show

The belt needed to give the feeling of practicality for the show with pouches and the added on rope and batarang speciality pouches that were used occasionally. The cylinders on the Infantino design would have been useless in live action for larger items. But that's the thing--the comic book use of...

Re: "Myths" Surrounding The Show

The article title led me to believe that Affleck had a body double, possibly added into the final film later. But as you can read for yourself, it's actually about who Batman's sculpted suit was modeled after. Other than that, I didn't find anything. I agree it looks fake, but no one online seems t...

Re: Secondary Villains

I like the idea of promoting molls and assistants to full fledged criminals in their own stories. I'm not sure Lady Prudence could carry her own story, we saw so little of her character. What would be her gimmick and crime? Lord Phogg and Lady Peasoup were so underwhelming that they would need to d...

Thanks for the heads-up, guys. Carefully looking at the images, its not as accurate as I would prefer.

Nice find, FLOYDLEWIS. Any idea about the scale of the model?

Re: Secondary Villains

The only "secondary" villain from that season worth another story was Lady Prudence (Lyn Peters) from the otherwise abysmal Londinium episodes. She had the rare mix of being intelligent and appealing, and the only character with an edge in that story. Her dawning interest in Robin (and his reaction ...

Dick Grayson- not sure
"An Egg Grows in Gotham" - Although Grayson was not in the thought transfer machine, he was held captive, and there's no way Egghead would set him--or the others free, especially if any harm came to Wayne in the process.

Re: "Myths" Surrounding The Show

The New Yorker has no bearing on Affleck's form--undeniably muscular--as Bruce Wayne/Batman in Dawn of Justice as seen in the column on the right-- https://i.imgur.com/66TITZz.jpg?1 So, Affleck and Bale had--by far--the best shape for the character. No other actors were a live action version of the...

Re: CLIFFHANGER!

"Instant Freeze" - The first Mr. Freeze (Sanders) cliffhanger: eerie, glowing frozen Duo. Probably the best cliffhanger for overall originality of the series. "Zelda the Great" - Aunt Harriet over the flames "True or False Face" - the duo tied to train tracks. "The Bookworm Turns" - Robin suspended...

Re: "Myths" Surrounding The Show

He wasn't better built than his comic book counterpart of the time, as seen in the 1960s comic book covers above. Yeah, the comic book Batman actually had a build comparable to other superheroes of the time. The comic version did not have thin arms or a paunch. the wold would not see anyone truly m...

Re: "Myths" Surrounding The Show

Is all subjective whether or not West was fat, but visual evidence (including comparisons fro others of the same era) certainly shows he was not that muscular at all.
