This is AWESOME.
The fine folks at Warner Bros. were nice enough to give me a heads up a couple of weeks ago about their new "Batman Exibit and Tour: Celebrating 25 Years of Batman on Film!"
Here's the press release...
To celebrate the 75th anniversary of DC Comics' Batman, we're inviting you to delve into a world of superheroes, Grappling Guns and Batarangs at the studios where the classic movies were made.
This summer, you'll be able to get up close to the iconic costumes, gadgetry and vehicles used in all seven movies as we open the doors to The Batcave and reveal some closely-guarded filmmaking secrets. Expert tour guides will accompany you as you spot iconic locations from the movies and will lead you to our newly-transformed Studio Tour museum - with more than half of the ground floor now dedicated to the Caped Crusader.
Six iconic Batsuits will be on display including the original version worn by Michael Keaton in BATMAN and the final Christian Bale costume from THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. You'll get 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 Toker's cards, Two-Face's coin, Penguin's umbrella and Bane's bomb.
In Warner Bros. Picture Car Museum, 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 you'll 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.
The legend never ends.
I've been to the Warner Bros. lot, but I've never taken the studio tour. I need to get out there and see this -- it's Batman on film afterall! The exibit begins on June 26, 2014. For more info, CLICK HERE.
