Middle of the Row – The Podcast: 035 – Does The Dark Knight Still Stand Atop The Superhero Heap?

This week we are flashing back to 2008 for more superhero fun, this time with Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight. This, along with Iron Man, heralded in a new era of films, where comic book films would become the biggest studio films for the next ten years on. We have a great conversation that focuses on just about everything, and it’s not all praise for this one either. So come listen to see how The Dark Knight stands up after a decade of superhero films!
