A new week has begun and as promised yesterday, today’s edition of ‘Something to read when you’re bored’ is a little different. In this issue, I am focusing solely on Batman, so if that’s your thing you are in for a treat!

No news today, so let’s dive right in!

The latest on The Batman

Prior to the ongoing situation with the coronavirus, Warner Bros. Pictures and director Matt Reeves were a partial way through the shoot of The Batman – the latest film to feature the Caped Crusader.

If you wish to know the most up to date info on this production, then check out my post: Filming on The Batman put on hold.

Long before comic book movies were leading the way at the box office, many classic characters (including Batman) were fronting Saturday morning serials. A number of these serials were based on DC Comics characters – but do you know how many?

On I’ll Get Drive-Thru I have served up a post called: How many movie serials are based on DC Comics characters? This post will fill you in on everything you need to know.


A little flashback for you now, to Halloween 2015 when I dressed up as the Clown Prince of Crime for a Halloween night out…

Back in 2018 on It’s A Stampede!, I published a post called: Whatever happened to the cast of Batman: The Animated Series? If you want to know, then take a look-see.

What am I listening to?

The musical choice for today, is…

…’Batdance‘ by Prince.

Music to my ears

Speaking of music, if you are an Amazon Prime subscriber then you may or may not know that you have access to a limited selection of music from Amazon Music. Amongst the various albums you can access, you will find Prince’s Batman ‘89 album, which you can listen to as part of your subscription.

Might be handy to know… if you fancy rewinding back to summer ‘89. The album can be streamed or downloaded if you need some background noise on your daily walk.

Sticking with Batman ‘89, over the weekend on I’ll Get Drive-Thru I published a post called: Who is Alexander Knox? The post looks at this oft-forgotten character from Tim Burton’s Batman.

Resurrection Night

Onto comics now, and yesterday on I’ll Get Drive-Thru I cast my eye over Batman: Resurrection Night – a classic comic book tale from the 1980s. If you want to know more, give the link a clicky-click.

If child-friendly Batman is the order of the day, might I also recommend you take a look at my post: What is Scooby-Doo Meets Batman? The post explains what this incredibly popular title is and why it could be one to look out for.

Batman classics

One of my all-time favourite series of films is the Batman Anthology – the four Batman movies that hit cinemas between 1989 and 1997. This is a film series which I own on Blu-ray and I never want to part with.

A little while back I posted a review for the Batman Anthology Blu-ray boxset. Fancy some reading on this subject? Then you know what to do!
