It’s that time of year again. The time when you drive yourself crazy trying to find the perfect gift for all of your friends and loved ones. But this year, if you happen to have a Batman fan in your life (and who doesn’t?), you’re in luck.
In 2019, Batman turned 80-years old. But the crime-fighting octogenarian is more popular than ever. So why not help your favorite Batman fan celebrate the characters 80th anniversary, as well as the holidays, by buying them one (or all) of these 5 essentials Batman gifts.
Batman: The Animated Series is widely considered to be the best depiction of Gotham’s favorite crime fighter outside of the comic books. So fans of the show will be sure to appreciate this amazingly-detailed board game based on the classic cartoon. It includes five highly-detailed miniatures that would be at home in any Batman collection, as well as all-new artwork from Table Taffy Studios and Leonardo Ito.
In Batman: The animated series – Gotham Under Siege, you and up to four other players take on the role of Batman and his trusted allies. Each round of play features a dice-based battle with different villains from the show’s first season. Players must balance fighting crime and completing story missions in order to keep Gotham safe.
Many fans would agree that The Dark Knight is the best live action Batman film ever created, and possibly the greatest superhero film of all time. And if the Batman fanatic in your life doesn’t already own this classic, it is a no-brainer present that you won’t even need to wrap. Get it Here from Amazon Prime Video.
Like all Christopher Nolan films, The Dark Knight cast boasts an embarrassment of riches, like Oscar nominees Maggie Gyllenhaal and Aaron Eckhart as well as Oscar winners Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Christian Bale, and Gary Oldman. And let’s not forget Heath Ledger and his unforgettable role as the Joker. Bale’s intensity perfectly juxtaposes the nihilistic furiosity of Ledger’s Academy Award winning performance as the Clown Prince of Crime.
Full of gritty, film noir cinematography that perfectly encapsulates the roguish Gotham City, Nolan kept the CGI to a minimum, making the huge reality-based set action sequences all the more impressive. The result is clear and spectacular. This movie may be 10-years old, but it’s still one of the best action movies to watch.
Don’t be an agent of chaos this holiday season, gift the best Batman movie ever, and help the Batman fan you care about forget about Ben Affleck and Zack Snyder.
