It’s got to be fun being Patton Oswalt. He’s got the sort of career that allows him, every once in a while, to take part in something that rides a great line between totally ridiculous and weirdly accurate. Case in point is this college humor video that takes shots at the Christopher Nolan version of Batman, and engages in the old conversation that Frank Miller attempted to silence with The Dark Knight Returns.
Namely, despite a professed aversion to killing, does Batman really know how violent he is? This version of Bats, who faces off against Oswalt’s incarnation of the Penguin, is a little more dim than most. He just can’t grasp the concept of death as a consequence of violence. Fortunately the Penguin is ready to give him a lesson.
