Did The Dark Knight Rip Off Dark Detective?

Episode 325: Did The Dark Knight Rip Off Dark Detective?

Just in time for the 2020 election!

Show notes

Just in time for the 2020 election! As a follow-up to our episode, “Did Batman 1989 Rip Off Strange Apparitions?” we examine writer Steve Englehart’s claims that The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises cribbed from Strange Apparitions’s 2005 sequel, Dark Detective, and the TWO UNMADE sequels that we analyze here, with Zack Brown as our recurring guest, who provided us this Joaquin Joker in the thumbnail. Did the Bruce-Rachel-Harvey love triangle come from Englehart’s ideas? We cover the verdict, along with Englehart’s unique take on a British version of The Penguin/Oswald Cobblepot in the unmade Dark Detective 3.

Also features the opening sketch “The Presidential Debate of Gotham” with Zack as the Joker with Wolfie as Bob the Goon, Andrew as Bane, and Ben as the hapless moderator.
