The Filipino comedy classic “Alyas Batman en Robin” has been featured on the American late-night talk show, “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”.
The 1991 Filipino comedy parody of the titular superheroes from DC Comics recently made it to talk show host Jimmy Kimmel’s opening monologue in the show.
In the episode, host Kimmel addressed film production company Warner Brothers’ decision to halt the new Batman movie’s release in Russia and unveiled the film’s parody teaser trailer for the show’s audience.
The talk show-made parody trailer included scenes from the Batman comedy film starring Filipino actors Joey de Leon, Keempee de Leon, and Rene Requiestas.
The video was also posted on Jimmy Kimmel Live!’s official Twitter account.
“Warner Brothers will not be releasing @TheBatman in Russia, so the Kremlin unveiled a teaser trailer for their own,” the Twitter account of Jimmy Kimmel Live! wrote on March 3, 2022.
