Over the years, many have tried to recreate the illustrious world of Batman to varying degrees. Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, Christian Bale, Kevin Conroy and now Ben Affleck have each put their own personal spin on the dual nature of the character. What makes a great Batman? Where did these actors go right, versus where did we feel they went wrong? Most importantly, who handled it best?
For this special episode of our podcast, as the character is getting yet another DC makeover, Batman is getting the Remake treatment as we revisit our favorite takes on both Batman and Bruce Wayne, then slap on our cowls, head into Gotham City and Remake The Batman RIGHT!
Clips selected Batman!, Batman, The Dark Knight, Batman and Robin, and Batman v Superman

What IS Remake This Movie RIGHT?
Remake This Movie RIGHT! is a bi-monthly podcast where we take a classic film that is actively being remade by Hollywood studio execs, and craft our own version for a modern retelling. Does the story need updating? Should characters or motives be tweaked? Do we need more muppets? We take all factors into account, concoct our singular film, and then offer a Final Pitch to you in movie trailer form. By the end of each episode, we will Remake This Movie RIGHT!
Our show is broken down into three distinct parts:
The Original: We discuss the original film’s impact on us and history, some quick trivia bits, what worked the best from the film and therefore must remain in our upcoming remake, as well as what didn’t work or what needs to be changed for today’s audiences. Most importantly, should this film even be remade?
The Remake: We put together our movie! What story do we want to tell, how close to the original will it be, who will star, and ultimately who should direct our eventual cinematic masterpiece? Our hosts work together to put together one cohesive movie, but there is one caveat – Each host has one ‘CUT!’ throughout the episode to employ, which could completely derail the entire film.
The Final Pitch: This is where we summarize our remake by utilizing the voice talents of voiceover artist Wayne Henderson and present our finished remake to you in movie trailer parody form!
