Stay Cool, Geek 162: The Batman Meets Lon Chaney

In which Kurt and DC superfan Dave Jahblahblahblah run down the possibilities regarding the latest Ben Affleck Batman rumor. Why would he want to leave the cowl behind, and if true, what would be the likelihood of Warners Brothers letting him out of his contract? Somewhere, there is an unlikely precedent involving The Cat In The Hat...

Kurt then welcomes in beloved horror host Dr. Gangrene to talk about the mythological tale of the long lost 1927 Lon Chaney film London After Midnight. Why is this film so hallowed? Does an actual print exists? And is the chase for the film better than the product?

Kurt and the Doc also discuss the latest Halloween and Friday the 13th news, with a shocking twist as Dr. Gangrene reveals an opinion about the Halloween franchise which throws Kurt for a loop.

Also, more Egghead. You know it's a good show when there's more Egghead.

Aquaman vs Namor. Black Manta's bizarre origin story. Deadman's giant high rise red collar. Shazam's short cape. Martian Manhunter's suspenders. And the Frankenstein Monster. Kurt and fellow DC nerd Dave Jahblahblahblah debate these incredibly important issues.

They also discuss the passing of Gene Wilder, the announcement of Deathstroke in a solo Batman movie, the characters of Justice League Dark, whether the Rock's creative control over a Shazam film is a good thing, the return of Adam West & Burt Ward, and the growing CW TV universe.

Finally, Tom Wilson aka Biff from Back to the Future is up to some interesting things, and the guys break down the meaning of his "I Am Pop Art" video.
