The Batman Experience at 2019's San Diego Comic-Con offered fans a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see eighty years of Dark Knight history up close, including authentic props and costumes from his legacy of films. No collection of Bat-costumes would be complete without Michael Keaton's suit from the blockbuster 1989 movie. However, years of exposure had left his iconic costume in a degraded state. In this DC Daily clip, we go behind the scenes for an exclusive look at what it took to restore the first Batsuit of the modern era to its former glory.
From his humble beginning in the pages of Detective Comics #27 to his current standing as a pop culture icon and one of the world's most recognizable superheroes, Batman has been delighting comics readers for eight decades. Now, we invite you to relive the Dark Knight's journey, as we revisit his many looks over the years in this exclusive Batman 80th Anniversary Comic-Con video.
Is this San Diego...or Gotham City? DC luminaries dug into the world of the Dark Knight just in time for his 80th Anniversary at the DC Batman panel at Comic-Con International, but if you weren't there, don't fret! DC Daily is pleased to present this insightful panel in full. Panelists include Tom King, Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo, Peter J. Tomasi, Mitch Gerads, Cecil Castellucci and Brad Walker; moderated by Tiffany Smith.
