Blake and Dion take a deep dive back into the Tim Burton world of Gotham City, unpacking the potential what if’s that could have been for this follow up- like a Billy Dee Williams Two-Face setup, or a Marlon Wayans Robin, and the dark tone that ultimately scared merchandisers, and caused Burton not to be asked back for the third installment. It’s a jingle bell ringing, egg nog drinking, and Christmas decorating, all new season closer of Saturday Night Movie Sleepovers!
