No hurry, Batman. We're celebrating all month! (Art by Bob Kane from Batman #59)
Yesterday, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment announced a year-long anniversary celebration honoring Batman’s 75th year and worldwide entertainment legacy. It will include new projects and initiatives from all areas of entertainment, including WB Television’s upcoming new series Gotham, WB Interactive Entertainment’s exciting new “Cape/Cowl/Create” art exhibition, DC Comics’ upcoming Batman Eternal weekly and of course, the start of production on WB Pictures and Zack Snyder’s new Man of Steel follow-up, featuring Ben Affleck as Batman.
That’s just the start of what fans are in for over the year ahead, and like all of you, we’re really looking forward to it. Here on DCComics.com, we write about Batman a lot for one simple reason—we love the Caped Crusader and his colorful crew of friends and foes. We’ve grown up with the same Batman movies, comics, TV shows, video games and toys that you have. We’re thrilled that Bruce Wayne has reached such an important milestone, and we want to celebrate it along with you. Therefore, we’re kicking off Batman’s 75th Anniversary Celebration with a special event here on the site. Not just a week of Batman, but a full month.
Yes, April is Batman Month here on DCComics.com. Beginning on Monday (we’re getting started a little early), look for at least one cool Batman feature on our homepage and on Batman75.com. With so much going on right now in Gotham, you never know what sort of features might show up, so you’re going to want to check back each day. You should also like the official Batman Facebook page, if you haven’t already. It’ll help you stay on top of everything as it breaks.
On behalf of all of us, thank you for supporting the Dark Knight for 75 years running. Your loyalty has been as unwavering as his battle against crime and corruption. Now, let’s have some fun…
