Comic Book Characters Like Batman Don’t Need Live Shows!

Why is it these days that artsy people feel like our beloved comic book characters need to have their own live shows?  I don’t know about you, but to me super heroes are best left on their comic book pages, or mediums like TV and movies.  Look at the abortion that is Spider-Man Turn off the Dark!  This mess has cost millions and millions of dollars, and for what?  So an audience can live in fear waiting for the next performer to fall on them from the rafters and break his/her neck?  No thanks please.  That thing should never have been made in the first place, because we don’t need our superheroes prancing around and singing show tunes.  We need them kicking a*s and taking names, because that is what they’re meant to do.  They’re not meant to be cast members in the next showing of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat!

Unfortunately, yet another comic book legend has a live show now, and it looks just as awful as Spider-Man’s mess.  Batman’s show is more circus like than Broadway, but it’s still a ridiculous looking production that resembles an episode of Pee-Wee’s Playhouse more than the Dark Knight.  If you thought those eye gougingly bad black-light scenes from the older Batman movies were gone forever, think again.  This live Batman show brings all of the Tom Foolery back from those gayed up Batman movies by Joel Schumacher, which made the Bat look like he was beating up ravers rather than criminals.  I wouldn’t even take a kid to this thing if it were the only entertainment in town.  Check it out below to see for yourself why comic books and live shows just don’t mix.  You’ve been hating this movement…

Batman Live!
