The Batman Complex


The Batman Complex is a trailer for a fake movie which posits a very interesting question. What if Bruce Wayne wasn’t Batman at all. What if he invented the entire superhero fantasy world as a way of dealing with the trauma of his murdered parents? Sounds plausible enough to me, and fortunately Christian Bale starred in another movie about paranoid schizophrenia, The Mechanic, and that footage is able to be used here for this trailer.

It’s a cool idea, and even if it lost me a bit once it started merging with Inception, I’d still love to see it explored. But it’s more than likely it would exist in a random offshoot alternate universe comic book series rather than a film. That would be just fine with me however. Surprise twist ending: He really is Batman and Scarecrow was just messing with him the whole time.
