Although the 2008 Batman film “The Dark Knight” (with the new Keith Ledger version of the Joker) was no doubt the creepiest, scariest Batman movie yet, this superhero has been around on film since the 1960’s. First as a TV series and then later in a series of films, with a variety of actors portraying our hero, including George Clooney. You may not look like George Clooney, but who can tell behind the mask? This classic Batman costume says it all.
You can still catch episodes of the original series on cable now and then, and boy is it a hoot to watch. “Bam!” “Pow!” “Zap!” Batman was known as “The Caped Crusader” back then. Or, you can get the whole series here.
Although the character is associated with DC Comics now, the Batman character first appeared in Detective Comics (#27, for you purists) in May of 1939. Wow! This superhero has been around awhile.
