Movies Batman

Batman Forever is not exactly a widely beloved entry in the Batman filmography. After the intensely grim Batman Returns which is the best live-action Batman film — the studio decided to turn things around and get goofy. Taking inspiration from the 1966television series , Batman Forever became a ’90s update of the vibrant and campy take on the Caped Crusader.

While this did lead to many fans not vibing with the shift in tone, Batman Forever has an incredibly important place in superhero history. And that’s its status as the first major superhero film to attempt to discuss homosexuality and bisexuality.

Read Between the Lines

Now, it’s worth noting that Batman Forever isn’t explicitly bringing up gay/bisexual relationships. In 1995, general audiences wouldn’t have been too keen on such overtly queer characters in their superhero movie. However, director Joel Schumacher took the reins after Tim Burton’s departure and Schumacher has been an openly gay artist for the majority of his career. He used hisbig-budget franchise moment to sneak in a lot about gay/bisexual relationships.

So, while this article is going to be a deep dive into how gay Batman Forever is, it’s important to note that all of this is just beneath the surface of what you see in the movie. There are easy heterosexual reads of the film that would ignore all of the movie’s subtext.But, there is plenty to digest and analyze. And you don’t have to dig too deep. So, let’s get started.

It’s clear that Schumacher wanted to explore the gay undertones of the relationship between Batman and Robin . Now, this suggestion has often been the butt of a lot of poor-taste jokes. But, it’s important to know that it gained popularity in the 1954 book Seduction of the Innocent by Dr. Fredric Wertham. Wertham’s book was a scathing indictment of comic books and their supposed influence on children. He asserted that the relationship between Batman and Robin was “a wish dream of two homosexuals living together” and that “the Batman type of story may stimulate children to homosexual fantasies.” Of course, this was presented in a negative tone and helped to stigmatize the idea of Batman and Robin as homosexual partners.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Such bolts from the blue seem to hit when weariness or ill fortune have plowed through the ground of reason, breaking it up so magic can take root. What follows is so perfect that to call it accidental defies belief. Diana Archer is an absolutely—mathematically!—average woman, living an unremarkable life, when destiny reaches her. Without quite knowing how or why, she finds herself leaving everything familiar and moving into a world where miracles are commonplace, where her supposed flaws become her salvation, and where each person’s story is everyone’s.

In this exuberant allegory, bestselling memoir and self-help author Martha Beck takes readers into the wild parts of the world and the human psyche. The story of helps every reader chart a course for awakening to greater joy, adventure, and purpose.

It feels almost magical to Diana Archer—out-of-work store clerk, former foster child, and bearer of multiple psychological diagnoses—when she’s pulled into the orbit of world-famous life coach and reality TV star Roy Richards. Together, Diana and Roy embark on the latest in his series of “conquests,” surviving a month in California’s trackless Sierras Oscuras National Forest.

It’s in the forest that their quest devolves into disaster—and the real magic begins. Lost, alone, and dying, Diana is taken under the trotter of a benevolent spirit animal (or is it a projection of her perennially troubled mind?) who promises to take her home. But ”home“ proves to be a place much more mysterious than Los Angeles. Awakening is the goal, Diana learns, and bewilderment is the method.

As the first volume of the three-part “Bewilderment Chronicles” proceeds, Diana will undergo a transformation that will change her irrevocably, and just possibly save the world. Let the enchantment begin.

Maybe, once or twice in your life, you’ve experienced a surge of destiny so strong it made you believe in miracles.

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK

“This book is everything. It’s a romp, a fable, a myth, an inspiration, a teachable moment, a true hero’s journey, a cautionary tale, and a fairy tale for an entirely new (or rather, ANCIENT) species of fairies. It’s rare that so much wisdom can be found wrapped up in such comedy, such kindness, such lightness of touch. It’s a perfect book. I want every woman I know to read it. This is storytelling at its very best, and also at its most important.”— ELIZABETH GILBERT , bestselling author of and

“What I love about this book is that you think you’re reading a grand adventure story, but by the end of the book you realize you’ve been abducted by the genius Martha Beck who has given you a soul transfusion—you’re more awake, more inspired, deepened, broadened, uplifted. I was amazed that a book can be so funny and so enlightening at the same time. Now I have to read it again, because I know that hiding within the book’s oddest twists and turns, there is even more spiritual gold to be mined. Martha Beck has written for our times, but this time, the story comes with instructions on how each one of us can find our way home. — ELIZABETH LESSER , Cofounder of Omega Institute, author of the bestseller, and

“Even though this book is fiction and not self-help or memoir, Martha does not hold back her clear instructions for living with greater peace. I devouredin the span of a few days; I daresay it is the most powerful book I’ve ever read for furthering my own personal and spiritual growth.” — CHRISTINE CARTER, Ph.D ., Author of
