Matt Reeves’ The Batman isn’t the only Bat-film being released this week. Michael Wayne’s excellent new documentary Batman and Me is also now available to buy or rent of all VOD streaming platforms. The film focuses on Batman collector Darren Maxwell.
Maxwell became addicted to collecting Batman merchandise in late 1980s Australia as a way to be part of blossoming geek culture. Decades later, Darren is stuck in a room full of collectables and an identity he no longer recognizes. Yet, a supportive partner, a fanboy best friend, and a persistent need to belong make him unable to let go.
Maxwell and Wayne sat down to discuss Batman and Me with Cherry the Geek TV. You can watch the full interview by clicking the link below:
