    Abstract

    This dissertation will demonstrate how the Batman film franchise has changed and adapted throughout its 75-year history. It will examine how the franchise has reflected and in some cases influenced wider societal, cultural and political issues. It will argue that the franchise has seen no greater change aesthetically and narratively than after the events of 9/11, where Christopher Nolan used the franchise to highlight America’s anxieties of their War on Terror.
