Watch the credits on this week's episodes of Batman and you'll find the actor playing the villainous False Face is credited as "?".

When the episodes initially went to air, there was a lot of speculation over who the actor was behind the mask. Which celebrity actor was convinced to play Batman's faceless rogue? We reveal all on this week's BATMANLAND podcast. 

Joining hosts Dan and Fiona is writer and host of the Queers podcast Benjamin Riley. Riley offers his thoughts on the show as a queer text and how the "won't somebody please think of the children" book Seduction of The Innocent may have had the opposite effect on Batman than intended.
