Everybody Chill And Watch The Trailer For Christopher Nolan’s Batman & Robin

Sorry for the clickbait, folks, but this movie only exists in an alternate and obviously better dimension in which Joel Schumacher never directed the abominable, franchise-halting Batman & Robin. Envisioning what the 1997 flop would’ve been like had Christopher Nolan been able to give it the Dark Knight treatment in place of Schumacher’s wtf-am-I-even-watching treatment, YouTuber The Unusual Suspect created a fake trailer entitled Batman & Robin [Modern Trailer] (The Dark Knight Style!). Kinda longwinded, but it gets the point across.

It’s a far more menacing take on the caped crusader’s most ill-fated movie outing that saw Bats (George Clooney), Robin (Chris O’Donnell), and Batgirl (Alicia Silverstone) duke it out with Mr. Freeze (Arnold Schwarzenegger), Poison Ivy (Uma Thurman), and a Bane (certainly not Tom Hardy) so commendably crappy he’d look out of place in a low-budget luchador movie.


But let’s be real. Not even a Hans Zimmer-esque score and broody voiceover can make us forget about those ghastly bat-nipples and cold temperature puns. If you need to be reminded just how scandalous Batman & Robin was and forever will be, “cheeell out” to the original trailer below:
