Re: New Batman Movie

Sprangfan, thank you for putting into words something I have felt for many years. When Batman '89 came out, I was discussing the rubber suit issue with a fellow fan who pointed out Batman wouldn't survive in a cloth uniform. I replied that anyone can wear bulletproof items underneath their clothing....

Re: FUNKO 1966 Batman 18" POP! LE 700 Figure Released and SOLD OUT!!!

It's very possible that some were bought up by vendors who will now inflate the price to scalp collectors...happens all the time.

Re: Any idea on this?

Back in 1973 NPP stood for National Periodical Publications. Maybe the vendor/manufacturer wanted to make sure of the copyright?

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #85: "Batman '89" Turns our Heads

Batinthesun productions released a really interesting short many years ago called "Patient J". It's notable for the appearance of the Detective Comics #27 bat-uniform, in the segments about the Red Hood becoming The Joker. They are quick shots, but prove that you can have a '39-era Batman outfit wit...

A Change In Perspective: King Tut episodes

I think it's funny how years can really change perspective. When I was a teenager watching "Batman" reruns after school, I would cringe whenever a King Tut episode would air, and usually tune out to do other activities, thinking "He's not a villain from the comics". I also felt this way about Bookwo...

Re: Julie Newmar Guest Starring on "The Monkees."

IMDB.com is our friend! In this case, the air date was April 3rd, 1967 (I was two years old), so the answer seems to be...."during". Her character's name was April Conquest (!). As far as when it was filmed in relation to her "Batman" appearances, this link (http://monkeestv2.tripod.com/season1/more...

Re: The Bright Knight Returns in this classic fan film!

Well made, but misleading header.. this has nothing to do with The Bright Knight, an appellation gifted and well-earned to Adam West. Thanks for the link, though.

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #74: "Batman vs. Two-Face"

Ouch. I believe I fall somewhere in the middle of all of these opinions, I am really conflicted. On the one hand, GLAD these are out there for us fans. On the other hand, wishing they were closer in tone and spirit to the first season. I think there is a little truth in all of these viewpoints, not ...

Re: The Adam West Batman Series We Missed Out On

Kind of nice to see this substantiated. Too often, the attitude of "if I've never heard it, it never happened" by the self-appointed experts will stop a subject like this cold in its tracks. Good job "Boss".

Re: 60's vs. 90's films

The need to flesh out the psychology/motivations of villains seems to be epidemic in the movies and the comics as well. It is a reflection on the feelings of studios/writers/producers/actors that the viewer needs all the background details and is not intelligent enough to follow the story without ev...

Memories of Batman from years past...

I can imagine, after reading posts here for the past year, that there are many people who can relate to my story. It's both funny and sad, but at this latest point, I feel vindicated in my fondness for the Batman character(s), especially the tv show. Let me explain why i say 'vindicated'... The firs...
