2:30-3:30 The Dark Knight Rises: Is Batman Broken? He’s strong, smart, and heroic. He’s the Dark Knight we want on our side, but is Batman also out of his mind? Caught between Catwoman and Bane as Christopher Nolan’s Batman movie trilogy comes to its end, will Batman break? Psychologists Travis Langley (Batman and Psychology: A Dark and Stormy Knight) and Robin Rosenberg (The Psychology of Superheroes) discuss Bruce Wayne’s relationships, strengths, weaknesses, and potential diagnoses, and ask executive producer Michael Uslan (The Dark Knight Rises); comic book writers Len Wein (creator of Wolverine, Swamp Thing, Lucius Fox) and Steve Englehart (Detective Comics); and Catwoman herself, actress Lee Meriwether (Batman: The Movie), exactly how healthy it is for an orphaned billionaire to spend his nights fighting crime while dressed like a bat. Does the Dark Knight have bats in his belfry? Room 26AB
If you would like to speak with Dr. Langley about the panel or his book (see below) during Comic-Con or beforehand, please reply to this address with your contact and media outlet information.
