Not only does 2014 mark the 75th anniversary of Batman, it also marks the 25th anniversary of the 1989 BATMAN
film on June 23rd. The "Batmania" that surrounded the release of the film is one of the most significant moments in Batman history.
Below you'll find 20/20's feature on the 1989 BATMAN film which aired, I believe, in May of that year. I remember watching this on ABC just like it was yesterday. In fact, I "taped" it -- using an actual VHS tape cassette -- and watched it over and over again until the cassette broke!
BATMAN '89 will mark its 25th anniversary on JUNE 23, 2014.
