Today on I’ll Get Drive-Thru I published a lengthy post about The Dark Knight trilogy. And when I say lengthy, I mean reeeeeally lengthy.

The post: Reviewing and discussing The Dark Knight trilogy takes a look at all three Christopher Nolan Batman movies, as well as the animated film, Batman: Gotham Knight.

If you want something to sink your teeth into, then sit down and work your way through this one. I guarantee it will keep you occupied for a while.

And remaining with Batman, have you ever wondered what the Tim Burton Batman films would have been like if they had continued beyond Batman Returns? Well, a few years ago a project was underway to bring the Burton era back via comic books.

Sadly, the comics never came to fruition, but if you would like all the details about what could have been, then check out: The Batman ’89 comic book continuation?
