Watch Bruce Wayne's Parents Die A Million Times Over in Ultimate Supercut
How many times have Batman's parents died onscreen? Vulture attempts to answer this question in a fun/highly disturbing video. They made a supercut (although it's more like a mash-up) of many of these iterations, from the original Tim Burton 1989 Batman, to Batman Begins, to Batman: Arkham Origins, to the Super Friends cartoon, and, of course, Gotham. They don't play the murders sequentially, but overlap them, so we can see just how many times the exact same murder has played out onscreen, down to a tee.
The video seems to ask the question, do we need to keep seeing this? No one at all familiar with Batman doesn't know his origin story, particularly after the success of the Nolan films. I would say this might mean that Zack Snyder will leave this scene out of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but the visceral impact of putting this on screen makes this unlikely. Plus, judging from the Spider-Man/Uncle Ben timeline, enough time has elapsed since the last film depiction of Batman's origin story to warrant another.
