Batman vs Superman Movie: 5 Gotham Characters That Need To Appear

5. Thomas And Martha Wayne

Without the back story, Batman is nothing but a billionaire lunatic running around a city in leather pants. The death of his parents at the hands of poverty and corruption mean we can at the very least understand Bruce Wayne€™s extra curricular activities. It€™s important to remember there will be a good few young audience members who will never have seen Bats throw a punch before. It€™s therefore imperative that they have at least some understanding of why this man dresses like a Bat, and mentioning Thomas and Martha is the easiest possible way. While it€™s unnecessary to retread ground walked in Batman Begins, it is central to the character of Batman that he himself and the audience remember exactly what started this crusade, and a brief mention here or there would be a great way for us all embrace the new Dark Knight with open arms.

As a pretty nerdy guy, I've loved film and television since I was a wee lad. Growing up in Ireland, The Den was the show to watch with it playing Batman The Animated Series, Star Trek: The Next Generation and everything in between. I have an MA in Radio and Television Production and have written for various sites, hope you enjoy my articles/lists for What Culture!
