VIDEO: Batman Learns About Mortality from Patton Oswalt (a.k.a. The Penguin)

Someone at College Humor stumbled on the notion that Patton Oswalt’s last name sounds a lot like the Penguin’s first. A few emails and some prosthetics later, and we’ve got this sketch featuring the beloved comedian in the role of Oswald Cobblepot as he may have turned out during Christopher Nolan’s tenure with the film franchise.

In it, the Batman learns some hard truths about the nature of mortality.

Let’s watch.


Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises are…all available on home video. This isn’t exactly timely.
