Cinematic Universe Episode 2: Batman (1989)
Our new fortnightly podcast, in which PanelBeats editors James and Seb discuss comic book movies with Film4's Joe Cunningham, reaches its landmark second episode!

This time around we discuss the Fantastic Four trailer, AKA Jessica Jones and Supergirl casting, and the 'Bondian' opening sequence of The Avengers: Age of Ultron; before moving on to debate the impact and legacy of Tim Burton's 1989 film, Batman.

As always, you can listen to the episode in the embedded player right here:
