Super Zero

Episode 1 – Batman Begins

Begins

Welcome to Super Zero! In Episode One, Alia doesn’t know a lot about Batman – is he in the Justice League? Was there a League of Shadows in the comic book? What’s a batarang?

We discuss at length the context of the modern superhero movie, and get our podcast started just like this week’s superhero: with Christopher Nolan‘s genre-defining gateway drug, BATMAN BEGINS

    That was fantastic.

    The one thing I would ask is that if you were to name creators of works to not only mention the writers if you can help it, there is a large enough problem in Comics of people focusing so intently on that side of the production that is is great when people talk about everything that goes into it, creative teams tend to bounce ideas off each other is all and the history with Bob Kane and Bill Finger and Stan Lee and Jack Kirby are probably the two most famous examples but it happens all the time.

    Unless of course it is the rare time when it is a single person doing all the work.

    Keep up the great show.

    Great podcast and I look forward to the future podcasts!
    Note that Batman: Year One isn’t just the first Batman story, but also does the same thing as Batman Begins and explains why he ended up dressing up as a bat. Year One starts off with Bruce Wayne in training and wanting to fight crime but not knowing exactly how and his evolution into Batman. Year One has a very realistic tone and tries to give explanations to strange comic book logic. The whole tone that Nolan gives his three Batman movies trying to give everything a realistic explanation, feels to me like just an extension of what Frank Miller was doing with Year One.
