Jon and I recently came across the show bible and read a few passages and then started to reminisce about the show.  Since it’s the 25th anniversary, we could not think of a better time to talk about this ground breaking show and it’s vision of Batman.

Join us as we reflect upon the show and characters and compare it to today’s movies.

Your comics pal,

CM Podcast 45 – Batman Vs Superman Review

The Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice movie came out and we saw it and have much to discuss about it.

We start the conversation of by talking about what comics we believe inspired the overall story of this movie.  Here are the comics we saw in this movie:

Clockwise from upper left: Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Superman: The Death of Superman, Trinity, JLA – Rock of Ages story arc and Superman vs Batman: Public Enemies.

We spend a few minutes going over these comics and their influences (intentionally or subconsciously) in the movie.

After that, it’s all spoilers and no holds barred deathmatch deconstruction of the movie itself…

102597285-Batman-vs-Superman.530x298  Jon and I give our opinions of the movie and then jump right into going over the plot and (lack of ) motivation for the characters.  There are laughs and deep philosophical debates.

See the movie for yourself and you be the judge.

Your comics pal,

Bonus – I found this video of Kevin Smith reviewing 1 comics in the JLA: Rock of Ages story arc and thought it was pretty good and relevant to this podcast:
