Watch Batman’s Parents Die Multiple Times In A Supercut Of All Their Screen Deaths

Batman's Parents

On Monday night's premiere of Gotham, viewers got to see Bruce Wayne's parents Thomas and Martha Wayne brutally murdered. Of course for the vast majority of viewers, it probably wasn't the first time that they've watched Bruce Wayne's parents die.

Of all the various superheroes, Batman's origin has likely been told more on television, in movies, cartoons and in video games than any other superhero. How many times have the Waynes met their demise on the big screen or the small screen?

Vulture put together a supercut consisting of Batman, Batman: The Brave and The Bold, Batman Begins, Super Friends, Gotham, Batman: Year One, The Dark Knight Returns, Gotham Knight, and Arkham Origins.

One can only wonder if director Zack Snyder will rehash Batman's origin yet again in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice or if he will take it for granted that everyone knows by now.

    Bottom left is not The Superfriends, it's the short lived "The Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardians" from 1985. The episode was titled "The Fear" and was written by a young Alan Burnett and cast by Andrea Romano, both would become members of the Batman: TAS team. 

  1. I thought this looked like a super weird concept but this was actually really really well made. Good job!

  3. Let's be honest: if Snyder put it in, people would call it unnecessary. If Snyder left it out, people would complain that they don't see HIS version of Batman's origin story. 

    Because people are apparently obligated to question every single thing he does in regards to that movie. 

  4. Also, you can technically see Batman's parents die three 1/2 times in the Arkham video game series: the Origins TV commercial, a nightmare in Arkham Asylum, a flashback in Arkham Origins, and the 1/2 is from a mission in Origins where you're scanning two shooting victims in crime alley and for a split second, the Wayne's corpses will appear nearby if you change your camera angle.
