Matt Smith Dressed as Batman

What It Says On the Tin

You know, if this had been the end result of The Return of Bruce Wayne‘s nearly incomprehensible time travelling shenanigans, instead of “Two Batmans,” I would have been okay with it.

…brb, writing a Doctor Who/Rip Hunter, Time Master crossover…

Matt Smith was captured in this pose at this Saturday’s 24 Hour Plays (this site has music, but, admittedly the most pleasing autoplay website music I’ve ever come across) show in Los Angeles. According to Comic Book Movie.com, it went something like this:

At the start of his play – called Gotham Autopsy – Smith was covered in a sheet in a mortuary before he came to life as a confused Batman. Comedian and Don’t Mess With Zohan star Nick Swardson starred as Robin. Also in his play were Kick Ass star Lyndsy Fonseca and fellow Brit Saffron Burrows. Half-way through the 20 minute skit Smith dropped his fake American accent and became a cockney (Brit) to huge laughs from the audience.

Nick Swardson as Robin? you say, I’d like to see that.

You’re welcome.
