15 Facts About 'The Batman' To Carry You Through The Batweek
The new Batflick, The Batman — starring Robert Pattinson, not Ben Affleck — has one of the best Bats and Bruce Waynes around. And one of the reasons for that is that almost all of the most fun and most wild bits and pieces were seemingly ripped right from the decades of comic book sources.
Here's the thing about comics: They can get weird. We are perfectly aware that this is a franchise that historically features a man running around in a bat-suit, talking crocodile men, and an extremely higher than normal number of orphaned children beating the bejesus out hardened criminals on school nights. That being said, with the approach to realism, it seemed like director Matt Reeves would be inclined to ease his creative foot off the gas of the batmobile of bizarre, but we're glad to see that wasn't the case. Again: comics can get weird. Embrace it.
