Why do they always do trailers so far in advance that you'll forget them long before the movie arrives? This could wait until Thanksgiving for a December movie.

I was hoping for more of a "Batman Simple".

If it's not a real movie, they could have said "Coming July 4".... ;-)

The only good Batman is a deconstructed or satirized Batman so that was lovely.

This is the trailer for every Hollywood action movie coming out this year and every year for the rest of your life.

How could you not?

I would honestly be on board for a superhero movie that's explicitly a metaphor for dealing with grief, deconstructing the power fantasy of the superhero that can solve things by punching.

Clever idea worth a "Heh" brought through masterful execution to a "Holy fuck."

This Batman movie exists! It is the LEGO Batman movie.

The Lego Batman movie is indeed the best of the franchise.

There's also a wonderfully silly Japanese animated series that is literally this: ONE-PUNCH MAN. It reminds me a lot of The Tick, but with an interesting (if lightly explored) subtext about breaking out of loneliness and depression.

Best theatrical release, definitely, but I still rank Mask of the Phantasm at #1 overall.

Finally! My long awaited (and sadly imaginary) Arkham movie!

Mask of the Phantasm was the only one of the animated series movies that was released theatrically.

Could use less characters and consistent colour grading.

I expect everything, including ALL the sinks, in fan mashups.

Yeah I'm surprised Youtube user "themanbatman" doesn't provide their staff colourist with access to the original flat pictures of multiple Hollywood productions. Basic mashup stuff really

Check out Logan - that's pretty much what it is. An extended meditation on growing old with mistakes you can't fix.

Which was, like, startling, when Lego Batman had left theaters and I just picked Logan at random as another superhero movie to see for some escapism ...

I appear to have typed and then untyped the bit where I said I wanted it to be set inside someone's mind. Sort of like Birdman if the entire movie was about Birdman and not the failed actor trying to make a Broadway show work despite the machinations of unkind reviewer stereotypes.
