Their Media Posts
Now while this film jokingly showed a bankrupt batman, this film, however, was meant to remind viewers that the struggles of the covid pandemic are no joke. That many people have been laid off, and they require the help of people better off, to help cope up with the economic decline. The charity wrote, “Batman needs monetary aid. However, many other people need it far worse.”
The charity added, “Kindly donate generously to support the thousands of unemployed, behind the screen personnel who created the shows and movies that helped entertain you during this difficult time.”
