More than 70 years of comics, eight feature films, two movie serials, countless television shows - the Batman is one of the most iconic and effective pop culture heroes of the past century.

Why is the character so effective? What is the core appeal? Does Batman exist as a simple vigilante fantasy, or are there deeper themes at work? An examination of Batman in comics, in film and in television.

Title: Holy Respectability, Batman!

Status: confirmed

Proposed by: Travis Johnson


With The Dark Knight getting heavy Oscar buzz and the release of Zack Snyder's adaptation of Watchmen, it's time to take a look at comic book film adaptations: the past, the future, and the current state of play. From the murky depths of Howard the Duck and Swamp Thing to the critically praised Sin City and The Dark Knight, we wrestle the whole shebang into some kind of order and take a few educated guesses at where current trends may take us in the future.
