While fully aware my next statement will enrage the cult of Nolan fandom, here it is: I prefer Michael Keaton-era Batman. I like a Batman who is aware of how absurd it is to dress as a giant bat while fighting crime vigilante-style, and has a sense of humor about it. And from the looks of Team Starkid's new musical, it seems I'm not alone.

Team Starkid is a enthusiastic ensemble of writers, directors, actors, designers, and other artists, who express their love of pop culture, fantasy, and sci-fi through incredibly ambitious works of theatrical parody productions, like A Very Potter Musical and their latest Holy Musical B@man! Inspired by the more cartoonish elements of the Batman legacy, writers/directors Matt Lang and Nick Lang offer a full-length song-studded adventure about the caped crusader that boasts appearances from such classic Batman pun-loving villains as Catwoman, The Riddler, The Penguin, Two-Face, Scarecrow, Mr. Freeze and Poison Ivy, as well as special appearances from several other Justice League members.

You can view the entire production for free on Youtube, Part 1 of 13 is linked below. Note: some of the language is NSFW:



Holy Musical B@man! is in no way endorsed by DC Comics, Warner Bros. or any of their affiliates, but thankfully, as a parody, it doesn't really need to be. This unadulterated and giddy explosion of live-action fan fiction ran for eight free performances at the Hoover-Leppen Theater in Chicago in March. And if you can't get enough of Holy Musical B@man!'s wacky wordplay, catchy tunes, and good-natured ribbing, you can purchase many of its tracks at Bandcamp, on the album That's What I Call StarKid! Vol. 2.
