297: Thanks A Lot, Batman

Get ready to SLAM EVIL this week as we explore the weird comic book films of the ’90s! Batman (1989) was a smash, and it birthed a slew of clunky attempts to bring cheaply-obtained comic licenses to the screen! Rich, white guys appropriating foreign culture to fight and/or help Howard Hughes! What could go wrong?

Plus, we’ve got a roundup of nerd news, we ask if cyborgs are haunted robots, Crips Hemsworth, Asa Butterfield going full Hoult, Yorgos is going “genre”, a little Oscar talk, and we realize that The Phantom aka “White T’Challa” is the Toto’s “Africa” of superheroes!
