About this Episode

Say hello to the bad guy. In part 3 of Mad Unreal’s special Batman series, we reimagine the Dark Knight’s rogues’ gallery by placing it in the context of a black Batman. Would aspects of the Joker’s “let the world burn” ideology appeal to a semi-radical Bruce Wayne? Would an African-American Batman agree to become a criminal to save the reputation of Gotham’s “white knight”? In this penultimate episode of our exclusive series, we explore the villains of Gotham City in a brand new light.

Mad Unreal focuses on the films and characters we find beautifully unreal, from Marvel to Star Wars, James Bond, BIPOC heroes, super women, and dope villains. Hosted by Arthur Turnbull and Isaac Perry, you can find the show on iTunes, Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, and Spotify.
