The Batman: 25 Things You Missed

Batman fans have wanted a gritty, dark, gothic version (not to mention a detective thriller storyline) of the beloved caped crusader for some time now and Matt Reeves has finally delivered with his brilliant, moody yet beautiful (and of course rainy) The Batman movie. The movie uses some of the devices that made Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy so successful, but also implements it’s own things to become a winged beast of its own and it has the potential to be a trilogy as good (if not better) as Nolan’s work. What makes The Batman so good is that despite it being a very different Batman from what we’ve seen in live action before, it also pays homage to the comic books and in particular some of the most well known Batman graphic novels of all time. It also pays tribute to it’s on screen routes, with some actually surprising call backs to other times Bruce Wayne has been on screen.

In this video we will take a look at 25 things or so you might have missed in the movie. That will include the aforementioned references to the comic books (including graphic novels from the 80s all the way to the New 52), references to a number of rogues and villains in Bats’ gallery, nods to fictional locations in DC lore, potential setups for new character introductions and subtle references to fictional DC substances, the way it tributes the brilliant and campy 1960s Batman series starring Adam West, the classic movies that you may not have known inspired the movie, the famous rock band that was the inspiration for Bruce Wayne, and some behind the scenes trivia and facts that you may not have known. This is everything you missed in The Batman!
