    @Fire_and_Ice_Returns, I loved Fatman on Batman back in the day. The episodes with Kevin, Mark Hamill and Paul Dini in particular were real standouts. In one appearance on that podcast Paul and Kevin came up with a Batman show out of just their random brainstorming that would depict the characters in a private school/academy. Worth checking out if you haven't seen it, as it's great fun. Don't know how easy those old episodes are to find now. I used to have all the Smodcast pods saved on my old laptop but have since lost them, unfortunately.

    I still listen to the Fatman On Batman podcasts. They get less focused on Batman down the line, though. Somewhere around ep. 70 we get mostly general film talk and a lot of Marvel too. Nothing wrong with that; the shows remain entertaining. But the strong stuff comes before that.

    My favourite episodes, in addition to those listed by @0BradyM0Bondfanatic7, are those with composer Christopher Drake, writers Snyder and Capullo, Stan Lee and Adam West, and Neil Adams and Denny O'Neil. I also love the commentary eps for Batman '89, Returns, Forever and Batman And Robin. And lastly, I have a lot of fun with the two eps in which Kevin reads issues of JLA and Moore's Swamp Thing out loud. In fact, those eps forced me to buy the full series of JLA and Alan Moore's Swamp Thing. Thanks to Kevin, I also bought and read Brubaker's magnificent Gotham Central, and many more books. Say what you want about Kevin Smith the filmmaker, or Kevin Smith, the guy who likes to keep the cult around him alive; this man talked me through some dark months in my life, and I'll owe him forever for that.

    @DarthDimi, I also enjoyed the Grant Morrison episodes. Those were great, wild discussions.

    @Risico007, I loved that one too. Just Kevin spending hours meticulously detailing every frame of that film with increasing enthusiasm and emotion.

    I was going through a rough and confuising time in summer of 2012 and yet that podcast was one of the first things that made me laugh

    (My ex fiancé said she wanted to explore other guys before committing to me so yeah I didn’t marry her I found a girl who is better and married her instead)

    I listened to Fatman on Batman originally on Sound Cloud many years ago and then on YouTube, though as i think KS said the older episodes are behind a pay wall now, It's been an age since i went on Sound Cloud, when i get chance I will see if anything is still on there. It would be great to revisit the early podcast's, i think i posted a few on this site in the Podcast thread i will have to take a look no doubt if I did they are probably blocked now.

    Thought you gentlemen would enjoy this:



    Remember watching this way back, and enjoying the OG Batman and Superman from the DCAU going at it. I also loved that Kevin got to recite lines from The Dark Knight Returns as his Batman, since he never got the chance in the animated series. The one episode of the animated series that pays tribute to TDKR, "Legends of the Dark Knight," has the wonderful Michael Ironside as the voice instead.

    I have watched the Tim Daly sketch before it is a lot of fun, definitely worth a look.

    Its funny I was watching a Football show yesterday and they kept making philosophical Batman quotes (in relation to a serious matter they were discussing), there are so many great meaningful Batman lines of dialogue throughout the characters history.

    From the geniuses who made the 007 playing cards (and other very high quality playing cards) comes something special:

    Man, that hit harder than expected. It's bittersweet to know we still have more Batman work to experience from him, especially if this is post-Arkham Knight and can give a better ending to his Batman story than that game did.

    I know little about the new game though it appears Kevin Conroy is voicing throughout the game from comment's I have read. The surprise at the end was fantastic, great ovation from the crowd.

    Batman: Caped Crusader was cancelled when in production by HBO MAX, Kevin Conroy is billed as Thomas Wayne in one of the episodes on IMBD. I hope he recorded his scenes and further more another streaming service pick's the show up. I will see if I can find any further information on the animated show.

    I think that was a mistake I believe he was going to be Batman for that show as well …


    Personally I am still on the fence with Sucide squad kills the Justice league largely because I want to play as Batman (or night wing or robin or one of the batfamily characters) rather then just as a dc character


    Even in injustice my Main character in both games is batman

    I actually have very little interest in this Suicide Squad game, unfortunately. From the time it was rumored to be in development, as far back as 2013, I never cared much for the concept. The only thing that makes me interest thus far is the inclusion of the League and how they are being controlled, which will be a fresh departure from the usual. Still not all that grabbed by it, though.

    When I found out that that was what Rocksteady had been working on all those years, I was incredibly disappointed.

    The genius that is Mark Hamill brings me in the right spirit. Thanks, @Fire_and_Ice_Returns!

    Even at his most maniacal the Joker still captures the spirit of Christmas.

    The two Michael Keaton/Tim Burton films are great. The two Schumacher directed films are awful though entertaining in that they are so bad they are good kind of way.

    I wonder if Jill St. John has ever been interviewed about this role?

    FYI:

    There was plans for a 4th season for NBC. But the Batcave was bulldozed and cost a million dollars to get a new one. So NBC passed.

    Sadly this seems to be an urban legend. No one has been able to find documentation of NBC's interest in taking on the show. Yvonne Craig seems to have been the first person to publicly state NBC was interested, but she prefaced her comments by saying she wasn't sure if the rumor was actually true. Producer William Dozier's papers suggest he was more interested in cranking out enough episodes to ensure the show was syndicated.

    The sad thing about Batman '66 was that the higher-ups "hotshotted" the show. After the first season, which did a fine job of balancing adventure and humor and was true to the comics of the era, the show gradually turned a self-parodic product, especially after Lorenzo Semple Jr. stepped aside as showrunner. Too many episodes were cranked out too quickly and the public decided it'd seen enough of what had become a one-trick pony.

    Excellent point @Revelator . As enjoyable as the entire three year run of the show was, those first season episodes stuck a good balance (IMO). While still “camp” (which I enjoy BTW), it wasn’t overdone. Like the infamous scene in Moonraker with the double-taking pigeon: one joke is great, two jokes are fine, but there comes a point where too many of them become cringeworthy.

    It’s interesting to speculate what a 4th season would have looked like. Would it have continued the silliness of season three, or would changing public attitudes have dictated a “darker” tone? IMO, it may have been for the best that the series ended when it did. The type of “Pop Art” that the series came to typify was really a 1965-1967 thing. By late 1968/1969 the public mood grew a bit grimmer.

    I could be wrong, but those are my thoughts.
