It’s time for the big one, for me anyway. You’ll hear why in the podcast itself. If that’s not enticing enough (which it probably isn’t, to be fair), then tune in to hear writer Niall ‘before Zod’ Heseltine and myself, radio presenter RJ Bayley:

  • Amaze ourselves with the noises my shiney new microphone picks up.
  • Me inadvertently almost-damaging the ceiling of Niall’s new home mid recording.
  • Reasons why this version of Bane is every bit the villain Ledger’s Joker is.
  • Moments and references in to film to the comics.
  • How much we pity Superman fans.
  • Why the term ‘universe’ is over used.
  • What the hell has gone wrong with the Terminator franchise.

Batman Begins was the first in a series of films that entirely shaped my life. So to give it the dues it deserves I got completely blasted and joined my comparatively blasted co-host Niall “before Zod” Heseltine” for an exploration of the first film of The Dark Knight Trilogy. But to mark this special occasion we’re joined by screenwriter and all around tremendous fellow Jon Seymour who stirs a good few debates and delivers some delicious opinionation on whether the tumbler is or isn’t a/the Batmobile, the nature of Ras al’Ghul and his own history with not just the caped crusader, but all the films we’ve tackled so far.

Behold the drunken majesty that is BATMAN BLASTED.

Goats In The Machine is very proud to have taken up the gauntlet of the Marvel Vs. DC Movie Mash-UpJoining RJ Bayley on this super-heroic quest is new official Goat Niall Heseltine. 

The aim of the Marvel Vs. DC Movie Mash-Up is to take a look at nearly all of the cinematic representations of Superman and Batman (prior to DC staking its claim on a unified cinematic universe for its characters with Man of Steel) alongside Marvel’s pre-existing cinematic universe, from ‘Iron Man’ through to Age of Ultron. The whole thing will then culminate with the untitled Superman/Batman film in 2015.

The project is the brainchild of podfathers Chris Sykes and Bill Lawerence (you can visit their blog All of Whine and Space), who have compiled the following list:
