Up until now, we’ve told you to watch the Batman movies in the order in which they were released. We’re shifting gears for 1966’s “Batman: The Movie,” which predates Burton’s “Batman” by more than 20 years. Our thinking is that after “Batman Forever” and “Batman and Robin” have conditioned you into processing a campy Caped Crusader, you should be more receptive to the wholesome hijinks of Adam West and Burt Ward.
Essentially a feature-length episode of the 1960s television series, this flick is defined by a massive villain team-up: The Joker (Cesar Romero), the Penguin (Burgess Meredith), Catwoman (Lee Meriwether) and the Riddler (Frank Gorshin) are all present. “Batman: The Movie” also includes Shark Repellent Bat Spray, a dehydration device that reduces its victims to powder, and a sequence in which Batman declares, “Some days, you just can’t get rid of a bomb!”
While there are certain rules Batman always has to follow to stay a coherent character, adhering to grim humorlessness and brutality aren’t essentially amongst them. If the Joel Schumacher movies are dangerous, it is as a result of they rely too closely on commercialization, not as a result of they let Batman smile each occasionally. The mid-’60s live-action Batman endures as a optimistic instance of a family-friendly Vibrant Knight. As Batman explains to Superman in Darwyn Cooke’s 2004 restricted collection “DC: The New Frontier,” his costume is designed to frighten criminals, not kids.
