Jennifer Dussourd's insight:

I thought that this article was really cool because it shows why Batman is around. Without these insanely bad guys, Batman wouldn't be needed. Gotham wouldn't need a hero. These villains play a very important role in Batman's history.

Hans Zimmer to score 'Batman Vs Superman'.. | Batman Legacy | Scoop.it

Zimmer told Digital Spy that he had been asked to return to score the Man Of Steel sequel, which will bring together Gotham's caped vigilante crimefighter and Clark Kent. 

"We've already had a couple of chats, and once I finish the movie that I shall not talk about I will probably head over to where Zack is shooting his movie and just hang out a bit and see if we can come up with any ideas," he said.

Jennifer Dussourd's insight:

Uhh.. this is kind of weird. Like Zimmer says, I feel like him doing this is kind of betrayal in a way. If he can find a way to do it respectively and create an entire new score for this new Batman, I think it'll be okay. I'm still not a fan of this.

Jennifer Dussourd's insight:

Reading the top reasons that people seem to still love and admire Batman was kind of incredible. Some of the reasons were superficial because let's face it, Batman's gotta be hot. BUT, some of the other reasons were his cool gadgets and car which are very valid reasons to love him after all these years.

Jennifer Dussourd's insight:

Reading this article I thought how bizarre it is that an actual Batman isn't interested in the newer versions at all. I know that he was Batman a very long time ago but I'd think he'd still have some input or opinion about who plays the role because he was one the originals(at least for me anyway.) While I may not agree with his non-interest, I think it's interesting how he has no interest. ----if that makes any sense at all. :P

Jennifer Dussourd's insight:

This article shows us a little bit of each different Batman. It’s pretty cool to see how much they all differentiate from each other. The changes are pretty remarkable. With everyone’s own vision of Batman, it’s nice to see how the character can transform into something new every time he’s “remade”.

Without Gotham City, there would be no Batman. This show being made just shows how popular even the city that Batman came from is. I think it's a decent enough show, kind of corny at times but I'm hoping it just gets better as time goes on. :)

San Francisco transformed into Gotham on Friday to make a wish come true for Batkid, whose secret identity is Miles. The  five-year-old Batman fan has battled cancer and is in remission after completing chemotherapy this summer.

Jennifer Dussourd's insight:

This story is one that touches your heart. I thought that it was so beautiful and moving and it made me realize that Batman can be more than just a character. Like he is in the comics and movies, he's a symbol for something much great than just a hero. He gives kids something to believe in and keeps them going. I especially liked this story because it showed how the kid affected so many people in he word on his day as Batkid. Celebrities and everyday people were there to cheer him on and allow him to save the day. It's a very inspirational story.

I think this article is great to show in this curation because even thought it's short, it's straight to the point. It shows how Batman has evolved over the years even though it's not directly showing Batman himself. His symbol in a way has advanced just as he as a character has. The newer designs for his symbol are so cool, it's hard to pick a favorite.

I didn't know there had been so many. The last one looks more like a splat than a bat. No doubt it's the latest. Batman sure has become a violent and dark movie. It's been years since I wanted to watch them.

This article stood out to me because I'm not a fan of Affleck taking on the role of Batman because I just don't see it. I've tried to stay away from everything "Batffleck" but this article genuinely interested me just because I wanted to see what he had to say about his new interpretation. I'm still not sure if I'll be seeing the new movie, but seeing what Ben had to say made me a little bit more okay with the casting.

Batman celebrates 75th birthday in Hollywood style!

Batman celebrates 75th birthday in Hollywood style! | Batman Legacy | Scoop.it

Batman is celebrating his 75th birthday this month with a series of comic-book, video-game and other events putting Gotham's famed Caped Crusader firmly back in the spotlight.

July 23 is officially Batman Day, and to mark the occasion in Hollywood, Warner Bros has organized a VIP studio tour including Batmobiles, masks, capes and other souvenirs of the Dark Knight.

"The world has no heroes... Batman gives you some hope and some faith," actor Danny DeVito, who played the caped one's nemesis the Penguin in the 1992 movie "Batman Returns," told AFP in an interview.

Batman was born in May 1939, the creation of artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger, who were tasked by DC Comics with creating a new superhero in the wake of the success of Superman.

Unlike Superman, the new hero was given a dark side, and rapidly became a global pop culture icon, decades before the latest generation of superheroes like Captain America, Spiderman or Iron Man took to the big screen.

While Superman represents the archetypal hero with super-human powers, a brightly colored costume and appears in daylight, Bruce Wayne is a wealthy tycoon who changes into a mask and dark cape to bring justice to Gotham City.

DeVito said Batman's success stems from the lack of faith in the political and business class. "We look around at us, our leaders and the young people we are supposed to look to.
"There's really nobody you can have faith in," he said.

Bruce Wayne has remained popular through the decades thanks to the varied formats, from the 1960s TV series "Batman" with Adam West and Burt Ward, the success of which re-kindled sales of the original comic books.

"The passion of fans is very, very high, it's a way of life," said Jim Lee, artist and co-editor of DC Entertainment, the parent company of DC Comics, at the presentation of the Warner Bros exhibition.

"People tattoo images of Batman all over the body. It's amazing to see how Batman has become a huge part of pop culture, he has really captivated the imagination of the entire world," he said.

Film versions have kept the Batman brand alive, including the "Dark Knight" trilogy by Christopher Nolan in 2005, 2008 and 2012, with Briton Christian Bale in the brooding title role.
Overall the seven Batman films (including the first four in 1989, 1992, 1995 and 1997) have made $3.7 billion around the world, according to the boxofficemojo.com website.
In terms of merchandise, apart from the usual T-shirts, baseball caps and posters, Batman video games are apparently all the rage.

At the recent E3 video games conference in Los Angeles, studio Rocksteady tempted fans with their new game "Batman: Arkham Knight," in which the hero has an ultra-light Bat-mobile which can transform into an armored tank.

In 2016, Batman will be back on the big screen, for the first time along with Superman, in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." Ben Affleck will play the caped crusader, although some have been skeptical about his casting.

This last July marked Batman's 75th birthday! It's hard to believe that THE BATMAN has been around for 75 years. He has become a legend in the eyes of his fans and to this day, he's still held on a pedestal. Actor Danny DeVito from an older yet classic Batman movie, Batman Returns says that the hero gives people faith and someone to look up to because we don’t have that in real life.  It’s really amazing how people view this character and allow him back into their lives and hearts every time he is recreated.
