Fan Effect

The Batman” is dark, gritty, and potentially divisive

Our favorite caped-crusader is back on the big screen with Matt Reeves’ “The Batman“ (2022) soring into theaters. But, will this new dark and gritty version of the Dark Knight, starring Robert Pattinson under the cowl, be a hit or miss with fans? Hosts Andy Farnsworth and KellieAnn Halvorsen sit down to bicker all things Batman and to try and find out. With a great cast, wonderful villains, and a case true to the legacy of the World’s Greatest Detective, there is no question this will be a box office hit, even with some confusing and almost parody-type story choices. (And Bruce Wayne’s ugly haircut.) 

Beyond Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Gaming, and Tech, the brains behind Fan Effect are connoisseurs of categories surpassing the nerdy. Brilliant opinions and commentary on all things geek, but surprising knowledge and witty arguments over pop culture, Star Trek, MARVEL vs DC, and a wide range of movies, TV shows, and more. Formerly known as SLC Fanboys, the show is hosted byAndy Farnsworth and KellieAnn Halvorsen, who are joined by guest-experts. Based in the beautiful beehive state, Fan Effect celebrates Utah’s unique fan-culture as it has been declared The Nerdiest State in America by TIME.
