In this episode of the show, we are talking about The Shadow and The Phantom, two 90s adaptations of comic strips from the 1930s. Over the course of our conversation you will hear us talk about how Tim Burton’s Batman incentivized Hollywood to look for other superheroes from the past, Alec Baldwin as a Bruce Wayne-esque leading man, the tonal shifts in The Shadow, the idea of wearing a purple onesie in the jungle, Billy Zane’s short stint at the top of the world, the idea of 90s oddities inspiring Christopher Nolan, ripping off Spielberg and much more!
