‘Badman’ series spoofs Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy
Comedians Pete Holmes and Matt McCarthy are both hilarious individuals who have created or been a part of many high-quality endeavours. Together, however, with writer/director Oren Brimer, the duo have starred in and written the Badman series, with Brimer co-writing and directing, since 2011. A spoof of Christopher Nolan’s take on the Dark Knight, the series doesn’t poke fun at the films, however; rather, it re-imagines certain scenes with Batman as a bumbling fool who is not respected as much as he is tolerated and is often a source of frustration. The latest entry in the series sees the trio tackling a climactic moment from The Dark Knight Rises, with Deanna Russo along for the ride as Selina Kyle/Catwoman.
