The week has finally arrived and The Batman is hitting theaters. If you weren’t lucky enough to score early screenings tickets for the film, then give this episode a listen before heading to the theater. Today we are talking about Before The Batman, and what pieces of information are shared about the back story of the film.
There are multiple reveals given in the book that many Bat-Fans would not know about with just the normal marketing that has been released. It’s also worth pointing out that while the book reveals certain elements of the history of this version of the characters, some of these items are not even touched on in the film.
Dustin saw the film at a press screening the night before this podcast was recorded, so there is an added benefit of knowing what is in the film and comparing it to how the facts are given.
What kind of facts? How about what role Alfred plays for the Waynes? Why exactly is Bruce setting up his cave in a subway terminal? What happened to Wayne Manor? This is just a selection of topics discussed in the new movie novel.
The novel may be geared towards a younger audience, but it still gives information that may better understand certain decisions that the filmmakers made when creating the film. So sit back and give a listen to this quick episode with Adil, Dustin, and BJ while you are on the way to the theater. Because before you see The Batman, you may want a little bit more backstory.
