The Weekly Stuff Podcast #361 – Batman on Film Part 4: BATMAN MASK OF THE PHANTASM with Kevin Conroy

It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts.

Continuing our ongoing BATMAN ON FILM series, we arrive at the fourth theatrical Batman feature, the first animated one, and quite possibly the single best Batman film ever made: Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, a standalone feature based on the classic Animated Series, considered by many to be the definitive portrayal of The Dark Knight. Starring Kevin Conroy as Batman and Mark Hamill as the Joker, with a new love interest and antagonist in the form of Dana Delaney’s Andrea Beaumont, Mask of the Phantasm is a dark, incisive portrayal of the tragedy that is Bruce Wayne, a film noir reimagining of his origin that cuts to the heart of the darkness lying beneath Batman’s iconography. It is a truly spectacular film, one that we’ve mentioned dozens of times before on this show without ever devoting an entire episode to, and it’s a real joy to finally rectify that.
