What the shock? More Batman
Beyond content? Oh yeah, Bat-Fanatics. We’ll keep serving it as
long as you keep eating it up. This time Joe & Kendall look at
the direct to home video Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker. This
was another blind spot for Joe and it did NOT disappoint. I mean,
the inclusion of Mark Hamill makes everything better.
Originally released after Season 1, Return of the Joker aimed to bridge the gap between Batman:The Animated Series and the rest of the Batman Beyond Universe. Boy, does this get dark! So dark that the original film was edited for initial release and eventually restored a few years later. Chief among them? The ultimate fate of the Joker. So prep a bag of popcorn, don your futuristic bat-suit, and discover why no-one in Batman Beyond really likes any of their former friends!
** This episode was recorded before Batman ‘66 volume 2, so the ongoing “plot” of Season 3 will be slightly out of order. Don’t let your back get Bane’d! It’s bad for podcast continuity **
