If you ever wondered what it’d be like to be married to Batman after he retired but refused to stop wearing his costume, this is how it might go. This first episode, “Storm’s Coming,” is of course based on the scene from Batman Begins where he utters said iconic line.
If it doesn’t go without saying, “I’m Married to Batman!” is largely influenced by Christian Bale’s portrayal of Batman in the Christopher Nolan series, but really, everyone who’s brought Batman to the screen played a part. Another Batman portrayal that heavily influenced this concept is, strangely, George Clooney, who did not choose to do a Batman voice at all, which I always thought was crazy. You have to do a Batman voice! To me, not doing a Batman voice would be like Superman flying around in Clark Kent’s suit and glasses.
You can look forward to more episodes of “I’m Married to Batman!” in the near future. We have 3 more already written and we’re working on a fourth. Yeah, these don’t take much effort to write, but they don’t just plop onto the computer without doing any work, either.
This was filmed using a Canon VIXIA HF M300 and edited in Adobe Premiere CS 5.5. I recorded the theme song in Adobe Audition – that’s me on vocals singing into a shotgun condenser mic as that’s the only mic I have right now. The piano and drums are all via keyboard, plugged in via direct line, which I plugged into an M-Audio box. That’s me in the batsuit and Dr. Girlfriend as Batman’s wife. We used the shotgun condenser mic to record the dialogue, but there is a ton of noise; not sure if it’s room noise or if the camera mic did not deactivate when we plugged in the shotgun condenser mic or what. Still trying to find the source of the hiss!
