"The Myth of the Grim And Gritty Batman" -- An Interesting Video By The Escapist

I’m sure if you’ve been in the discourse about Batman online in recent years, you’ve probably heard the refrain of “Batman’s too ‘grimdark’ and takes itself too seriously.” It’s a thing that never felt right to me, and I think this video really explains it well.

What do you guys think?


If I was grim dark I would die instantly. I am a guy who adopts orphans and saves the world with them.

After watching the video, I feel like watching Batman Forever. I want to see the Riddler!
