About this Episode

It’s the finale of our special 4-part ‘What If the Batman was a Black Man’ series! In this episode we put the spotlight on the fans themselves and discuss how an African-American Batman would be received by super hero fandom. We take a trip from the 60s TV series through the Reagan 80s and Frank Miller’s ‘The Dark Knight Returns’, all the way to the present day era of post-Christopher Nolan movies and pre-‘The Batman’ hype. Join Mad Unreal as we wrap up our exploration of this fascinating question.

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.
