Cards: Metal Fleer Batman Forever cards 76-80

The Fleer cards return! More wonky drawings of Robin. I have no idea what's going on with the Riddler's hair in "Need a lift?"

Batman Forever Merchandise Review: Style Guide by Warner Brothers

Here's something I've been looking for a long time - the Style Guide that was handed out to companies that wanted to make tie-in products to Batman Forever.

For now, here's the video but I'll look to get the entire folder scanned for archiving purposes and put it in a future post. It's going to take a while as it's over 100 pages long!

In the meantime, here's a sample of the illustration guide for Batman.

I'll hopefully be covering those in the near future.

News: Funko POP are releasing a figure of George Clooney's Batman!

No this is not an April Fool's Joke. Funko really are going to be releasing a George Clooney Batman figure from the much maligned Batman Forever follow-up Batman & Robin.

I've sorted of avoided talking about the infamous 1997 movie for a long time. And... well... there's a reason that this website is called

I don't really have a great hatred of Batman & Robin (like so much of the internet does) but I don't really have a great love for it either. I'm sure at some point I'll put down my complicated feelings about the movie. The short version is I think it's a rushed, lazy movie that tries and fails to copy all the beats of Batman Forever without getting the recipe right.

Anyway, I'll probably be picking this up and will do a review regardless.
