My (Latest) Batman Dream


The other night, I had a dream that I got to watch what turned out to be the perfect Batman movie.

In the dream, I was walking down what appeared to be an AMC theater hallway, and I saw the title above a theater read “Batman Unleashed” (I think). And I rolled by eyes, because — as we all know — “Unleashed” (I think) was supposed to be lame. But since I was just strolling through this cineplex hallway with nothing else to do, I decided to give it a shot.

I cannot properly explain it, other than the feeling throughout the dream was excitement and happiness. But it was directed by Christopher Nolan and it featured Batman and Superman, both of which were portrayed in animation. All other parts were live action, including a remarkably creepy Billy Crystal as the Joker, based largely on Joel Grey’s “Cabaret” role.

There was a prison breakout scene and a battle in Saudi Arabia.

After the dream movie, I ran into the AMC hallway, met up with my wife and gushed about it. Then she wanted to watch it with me, and we did and it all happened again — animated Batman, Crystal Joker, prison break, Saudi Arabia.

This recreation of exact dream events feels like the most remarkable part of the dream. I might be remembering it wrong, but it feels like it was all there played twice.

Then I woke up.

Five dream stars.
