Superheroes, Movies & Superhero Movies – Episode 097 – Batman Begins [2005]

After a seven year wait, we finally got another, serious Batman movie. Gone were the campy, toy-sales driven, bat-nipple filled Batman movies. The fans wanted Batman taken seriously and director Christopher Nolan delivered the goods. Set in a much more realistic universe, Nolan gave us a Batman origin story, which was something we’d yet to see. It was a fantastic direction for not just Batman but comic book movies in general. As Bruce Wayne discovers how to be Batman, the movie sets up Scarecrow and Ra’s al Ghul as his first adversaries. How does it hold up and what do the guys think of it? What do YOU think of Batman Begins? Let us know!
