The Batman… again!

The Batman. Publicité France. 2022. Var Matin.

Today I went to see the film The Batman. Again. This is my second viewing, and it allowed me time to focus more on some of the many details I loved in the headrush-mind-blown-euphoria of my first viewing… like… just how awesome is every nuance of the soundtrack (Michael Giacchino for an upcoming Oscar anyone?); how hypnotic is the cinematography in its scale and lighting; how much creepier (and excellent acting kudos once again to Paul Dano) is The Riddler? The Batmobile car chase scene… Selina Kyle… The Nightclub scenes…


Bah. I could be a fanboy all day about this movie and bore you to bat tears (fair warning: I’m hoping to see it a third time before it exits the cinemas here). Instead, I’ll leave you with a couple of French publicity items I found – which have been a bit thin on the ground here since the pandemic in terms of the free goodies I usually pick up. As a bonus, I’ll make a quick rummage through my Batman archives to present some wonderful toy and advert images you may have missed last time around.

If you haven’t seen The Batman yet, what are you waiting for? Hurry.

As always, thanks for looking!

You’d have to be a bit bats to enjoy this post!

Batman. The Long Halloween. 1996. US.

I’m still stoked after seeing the trailer for The Batman 2021 movie. You can count me in for a bit of gothic fun any day of the week, and this film looks like it’s going to deliver moody darkness in swathes of glory!

As such, it got me searching the archives for some mean and moody Batman comic book ads from the 90s.

If ye be bats, enjoy 🙂 🦇
