Look, I can’t believe it but here we are talking about a DC Comics production two weeks in a row.
"Peacemaker" wasn’t just good, it was perfect and I can’t wait to rewatch the series, but "Peacemaker" is not the only DC character making headlines as "The Batman" begins to astonish critics and fans alike.
With a current score of 85% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, it is clear that this pulp noir film is not only fresh in the eyes of fans and critics, but it is also a new direction that the superhero genre of film has not been exposed to in quite a long time, yes the genre has seen three hour long epics, but when is the last time you’ve seen a superhero film packaged as a detective mystery?
That's where the appeal of "The Batman" comes in. Despite the three hour run time seeming like a major commitment, people that I’ve talked to, Batman fans and casual film goers all say how fast it goes by, how beautiful the visuals are, and how the plot grips you up until the last second before exploding into a third act that is as stressful for the viewers to watch as it is for Batman to fight through.
With the release of "Spider-Man: No Way Home" in December, "Peacemaker", "The Batman" and future films such as "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness", "Black Adam", and "The Flash", it is so exciting to see where the genre of superhero films will go.
This lineup of movies seems so diverse and fresh and "The Batman" definitely feels fresh with its detective crime solving feel.
