What's with the name?

Allow us to explain.

Oh Mah Glob Guys

What If Gotham City: The High School Years Was A Real Movie? Seriously. An Actual Movie You Could Watch. Here It Is.


So, you’re going to start watching this, figure out the general premise and go, “Ok, that’s cute.” Then you’re going to keep watching and think, “Huh. That was pretty clever.” But by the time you get to the end you’re going to be as convinced as we are that this is the BEST IDEA TO HAPPEN ON THE INTERNET (at least this week.) The execution is flawless. Seriously. After watching, I sat here for ten minutes wondering how to present it you all and was still left blown away. The awesomeness of this video CANNOT BE CONTAINED. Just stop reading and watch it now!

    Surely Tumblr can make this happen with a giant wall of gifs (read: Dear Tumblr, please do your crazy awesome magic and make this happen immediately).

    Very well played. I could see this as a Smallville sort of series. Except without the pretense everything was going to end up resembling the comic continuity. No promises, keep viewers on their toes.

    Love this! It made me go “Squee!” involuntarily at work. Wish I didn’t notice the typo, though…

    Wow, whomever produced that did an absolutely professional job. So much so I’m guessing it really was a professional job… If not and that was a real girl someone needs to hire her…

    IIRC, this *was* the original concept for what became Smallville. Eventually the teen Batman idea was split off and made into Batman Beyond.

    It was fun, but the number of scenes taken out of “10 Things I Hate About You” was kind of distracting.

    Ughh… even as a parody this fails. It was sorta cute how they used clips of movies that the Batman actors were in, but still.. no.

    Just no.

    Is it just me or did io9 just plagiarize this article, the day after it came out? Seriously do the article authors make so much money that no one can afford to give them credit for coming up with interesting reading?

    Just realised the DJ in the vid was Riddler. ‘Riddle Me This’. Very clever. Whoever did this is going to be a great editor.

    I guessed the narrator as I was ticking off the characters in my head. Very cute! I’d RP this
