reading with batman and robin

Steered the boy to the 1966 Batman movie for some old fashioned good times. No guns in evidence, just some fisticuffs/poison umbrella smoke, torpedoes, bat-a-rangs etc. (Plus I really wanted to hear Adam West's fantastic line delivery after seeing Nic Cage ramp it up in Kick-Ass. Genius.) Batman was a total hit.

It didn't quite work out like this but you could use these as a fun reading quiz; the movie is littered with these little signs (shark repellent batspray, good thing they had that...) You could really push it and use this as a moment to explain who Shakepeare was. Too much?
