Nolan’s Batman and ’60s Robin


I’m seeing The Dark Knight in T-minus 24 hours now (midnight showings were all sold out), but until then, I’ll get my fix by posting as much Batman related stuff as I can.

I think there’s a time and a place for dark and brooding Batman, but I have a certain appreciation for the fabulously campy ’60s Batman as well. It was how I was first introduced to the character, and though my perceptions of him changed over the years, it’s a variant I still think is a lot of fun.

But what happens when you combine the old and new schools of Batman? You get the video above, where ’60s Robin doesn’t exactly fit in with the modern era Batman. Those are pretty damn good Bane and Batman costumes for a few minute comedy short.
