The Dark Knight Turns 75!


One of our favorite superheroes, Batman, will be celebrating his 75th Anniversary and the Warner Bros. VIP Studio Tour has today revealed its contribution to the festivities with a special exhibit on the studio lot in Burbank, California.

Film fans will be able to get up-close-and-personal, for a limited time, to the iconic costumes, gadgetry and vehicles used in all seven Batman movies as they open the doors to the Batcave and reveal some closely-guarded filmmaking secrets. Expert tour guides will accompany film fans as they spot iconic locations from the movies and will lead attendees to the newly-transformed Studio Tour museum – with the entire ground floor now dedicated to the Caped Crusader.

Six iconic Batsuits will be on display in the Warner Bros. Museum including the original version worn by Michael Keaton in Batman and the final Christian Bale costume from The Dark Knight Rises. In addition, you can see a wide range of authentic costumes including those worn by Poison Ivy, The Riddler, Mr Freeze and Catwoman as well as some infamous prop weapons such as the Joker’s cards, Two-Face’s coin, Penguin’s umbrella and Bane’s bomb.

In Warner Bros. Picture Car Vault, which is located on the studio lot, a selection of the Dark Knight’s most iconic vehicles will be showcased – with the Bathammer, Bat-Pod and Tumbler taking centre stage. The Bat-Signal, used to call Bruce Wayne’s alter ego at a time of need, will be on display and film fans can get the chance to operate the infamous prop yourself.

A limited number of specially-themed Batman carts will be available throughout the day, ready to escort film fans around the studio lot.
