The Appeal of Damian Wayne as Batman

Here’s another Sourcerer throwback. The character of Damian Wayne, son of Batman, has certainly undergone a lot in the past five years, but I think my ideas still hold some weight. Check them out at the link below!

The Appeal of the Joker (Part 4 of ?)

Hello, everyone! Busy week once again, so I return to my back log of posts from several years ago I’d like to see return to the light. Here’s one where I talk a bit about the original introduction of the Jerome character in Gotham and how I enjoyed his evolution as the Joker. I’m happy to see they eventually brought him back. Anywho, stay crazy and enjoy!

What if Batman were a Marvel Character?

Here’s the followup to my most successful post ever over at Sourcerer. Give it a read if you haven’t.

Awhile back I asked a popular question: is Batman a Marvel character trapped in the DC Universe? The Internet reacted favorably. This seems to be a popular line of thought, being as even Joss Whedon has joked about it during press conferences. Today, I wish to propose a few thought experiments to determine what Batman might actually be like if he were a Marvel character.

As most of you already know, the film was directed by Tim Burton and stars Michael Keaton, Michelle Pfeiffer, Danny DeVito, and Christopher Walken. Here are my thoughts and observations, grouped  around a few specific themes.

The Aesthetic

The look and feel of Gotham are fairly different from the first movie. Whereas the previous movie seemed strangely timeless, this entry in the series is set around Christmas with a seemingly bottomless, thin, clean layer of snow everywhere. The opening shots of the movie really work in Tim Burton’s quasi-German Impressionistic signature style, which was largely absent from the previous movie.
