004: Dark Nolan Trilogy

"004: Dark Nolan Trilogy"
The year was 1939.  Artist Bob Cane and writer Bill Finger submitted to Detective Comics a new crime fighting character...a man without superpowers...but his mastery of science, detection, technology, martial arts, intellect, intimidation, physical prowess and detective skills...The Batman was born...and for the next 70 years, Bruce Wayne's legacy to his murdered parents and to Gotham City continues to thrive and grow for each new generation. He's been called The Caped Crusader. The world's Greatest Detective and The Dark Knight. Join The Hollywood Gauntlet as they dive deep into Gotham and examine writer-director Christopher Nolan's three film cycle that finally gives The Dark Knight a definitive big screen adventure and for the first time, a closure to the Bruce Wayne story.

  1. John & Co.,

    DKR CHANT! Thank you Hollywood Gauntlet

  3. Thanks Jansen and Co. for another great episode. Hollywood Gauntlet is wonderful! Keep 'em coming.

  4. That was a great listen. Well produced, informative...and just fun. I'm really glad you guys covered the Dark Knight Trilogy.

  5. This is the most informative, well-produced and interesting film podcast in existence. The way that music, sound clips and interviews are weaved into the podcast offers a real documentary feel. It all makes each new episode of "The Hollywood Gauntlet" an event and separates it from the vast majority of other podcasts out there.

    The blog's "study guides" and teasers are such a bonus. For someone who buys Blu-Rays and DVDs for the extras, this podcast is always like getting a collector's edition of your favorite film.

    This is a simply amazing podcast.

  6. This episode got me so fired up I have listened to the complete scores of all three films today. Great stuff!

  7. Well I thank you for this, another stellar effort sirs...

  8. This was really great! Thanks everyone.

  9. Thanks so mutch for covering the dark knight trilogy.

  10. The Hollywood Gauntlet is the best produced and most informative podcast available. The program is more reminiscent of a documentary than a typical podcast. I can't understand why this program is not the number one movie podcast online. It should be...because it's AWESOME!

    Thanks for covering Nolan's Batman trilogy.
