Look at Batman:
Wondering what he’s so glum about? Is Alfred sick? Did Poison Ivy turn down his romantic advances again?
The answer is none of the above. The answer is in the video below.
In light of the U.S. premiere of Fox’s Gotham—a show that puts Bat-ally Detective James Gordon in the lead during Gotham’s pre-Batman era— entertainment site Vulture.com put together a super-cut of Batman’s origin story.
For all the non-Bat-freaks, that origin story involves the mugging and subsequent murder of Bruce’s parents, Thomas and Martha Wayne—right in front of young master Bruce, and thus, triggering his quest for crime-fighting superhero-hood.
We’re big bat geeks, and we all got a hard-on when we saw all of his cowls illustrated nicely. So when we saw this nifty video that illustrated the many deaths of Batman’s folks—from the 1989 Michael Keaton blockbuster to the modern-day iterations—we can unabashedly say that we’ve never squealed that much in glee over such tragedy.
