Batman Series Episode 1

Na Na Na Na Na Now Playing!

When it comes to box office superheroes, none looms larger than Batman. He dominated theaters in 1989 with Tim Burton’s vision of the caped crusader, and in the 21st century Christopher Nolan’s take on the Batman made him the box office champion, with The Dark Knight becoming the highest grossing superhero film ever. Now, as we ramp up for Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, Now Playing will be looking back at all of the Batman films, starting with the 1966 theatrical release! When Batman knocked out television audiences everywhere the studio decided to cash in on a feature film version of the show, where four of the dynamic duo’s worst villains, Joker, Catwoman, Penguin, and The Riddler, team up to take over the world. Does this classic series hold up in feature length? Listen to Stuart, Jakob, and Arnie to find out!
