Batman: DC Comics celebrates The Dark Knight's 75th Anniversary

It's a great time to be a Bat-fan, especially since 2014 is a BIG YEAR for everything related to DC Comics' most iconic vigilante superhero.

75 YEARS AGO... On March 30, 1939, Illustrator Bob Kane and Writer Bill Finger created a shadowy and menacing costumed figure... Who would go on to become one of the most iconic superheroes of all time.

That superhero is none other than The Dark Knight and Caped Crusader of Gotham City himself... The Batman.

As the alter ego of Billionaire Bruce Wayne, Batman seeks to defend the innocent and deal justice to the "cowardly and superstitious". After losing his parents to a grisly crime when he was a young boy, Bruce dedicated his entire life to fight criminality and ensure others wouldn't suffer the same tragedy that befell him. Mastering an array of martial arts and sharpening his mind to become one of the keenest minds on the planet, Batman wages a one-man war on crime and uses his resources and arsenal of high-tech gadgets to aid him in his battles. He also has allies in his crusade such as Robin The Boy Wonder and Nightwing, as well as forging a strong friendship with Police Commissioner James Gordon and being a founding member of the Justice League.

To celebrate the 75th Anniversary of one of the greatest superheroes of all time, DC Comics has launched the official "" website to commemorate this milestone, as well as highlighting the list of new material, media, events, and merchandise that fans will be able to see throughout the year, which include the release of the new weekly comic book series "Batman: Eternal" this April, and Rocksteady Studios upcoming final entry in their highly-acclaimed Batman: Arkham video game series, Batman: Arkham Knight.

In addition to unveiling a "75th Anniversary logo", the official press release of DC states the following:

"To mark the milestone 75th anniversary of DC Comics’ Batman, Warner Bros. Entertainment and DC Entertainment have revealed plans for a year-long celebration befitting the world’s most popular Super Hero.  Highlights of the anniversary program, which starts today, include a new commemorative 75th anniversary Batman logo and an exclusive “Cape/Cowl/Create” art exhibit, featuring 20 contemporary artists’ interpretation of The Dark Knight’s iconic cowl headpiece and cape from the upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight videogame.  There will also be 75thanniversary-related activities across all of Warner Bros. Entertainment throughout the year.
First appearing in the comic book Detective Comics #27, which hit newsstands on March 30, 1939, featuring artwork by Bob Kane and a script by Bill Finger, Batman emerged from the shadows to become the world’s most popular Super Hero and dominate all media.  In feature films, TV shows, radio, video games, publishing and merchandise, this most human of Super Heroes has battled some of fiction’s greatest villains using his intellect, cunning and an arsenal of gadgets to further his quest for justice.
“Batman is an incredibly important property with multi-generational appeal across all of the Studio’s businesses, and we’re proud to celebrate this milestone anniversary,” said Kevin Tsujihara, Chief Executive Officer, Warner Bros. Entertainment.  “From billion-dollar blockbuster films to TV, home entertainment, video games and consumer products, The Dark Knight continues to resonate with audiences worldwide and rightfully deserves his place as a global pop culture icon for the ages.”
Batman is the single most successful Super Hero film franchise in history and there have been more theatrical movies released based on Batman than any other comic book character.  In video games, the Batman Arkham franchise is also the most successful Super Hero game concept ever.  Batman consistently breaks records in every incarnation of his character and remains the gold standard by which all other comic book sales are measured.
“Batman is one of the greatest characters ever created, in comics or elsewhere, and even after 75 years he continues to wildly fascinate fans.  He is an integral part of pop culture and has successfully captured the imagination of the entire world,” said Diane Nelson, President of DC Entertainment and President & Chief Content Officer, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.  “The origin of Batman, Bruce Wayne and the famous citizens of Gotham are legendary and likely a story you know inside out, even if you’ve never picked up a comic book in your life, and that speaks volumes to the character’s immense popularity and the constructs of the original mythology.”
The first published adventure of The Bat-Man (as he was then known) was in the May 1939 issue of  Detective Comics #27, conceived of and drawn by a 22-year-old Kane with his frequent collaborator, Bill Finger, scripting the story. The character was so successful, that one year later the first comic book devoted exclusively to the Caped Crusader’s adventures,Batman #1, hit newsstands. In that issue, Batman battled The Joker and Catwoman for the first time.
Now, DC Entertainment and the Studio’s various divisions, including Pictures, Television, Animation, Interactive Entertainment, Home Entertainment and Consumer Products, will mark this extraordinary 75th anniversary with a range of highly anticipated events and products.
The new commemorative logo, also released today across social media and websites, takes its cue from the famed Bat symbol, and features block-style lettering of “75 Years.”  The mark will be rolled out on Batman-related promotions, products and initiatives. 
Key activities planned for the Batman 75th anniversary celebration include:
  • DC Entertainment – DC Entertainment has an action-packed year filled with new Batman titles, commemorative issues and variant covers, including the recently released special edition of Detective Comics #27 commemorating Batman’s first appearance in the book in 1939, the new weekly series Batman Eternal launching April 9, and upcoming exclusiveBatman variant covers planned for San Diego Comic-Con International in July.

Gotham: Official TV Logo and Synopsis released by FOX

Following on the heels of The CW's reveal of the full costume of Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/ The Flash in the new upcoming TV Series, Fox has revealed their logo design and official synopsis for their upcoming Batman spin-off TV Series, "Gotham".

Starring Ben McKenzie as a young James Gordon (while ironically playing Batman in the DC Universe Animated Original Movie adaptation of Batman: Year One), the series will focus on his origin story as he works up the ranks of the Gotham City Police Department, while telling parallel origin stories of the city's future supervillains... As well as an orphaned boy named Bruce Wayne who will one day grow up to be the city's greatest defender.

Here's the official synopsis, courtesy of Fox and posted in Superherohype.

Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world's greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon's story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world's most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them – the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker? 

"Gotham" is an origin story of the great DC Comics super villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”), "Gotham" follows one cop's rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time. 

Growing up in Gotham City's surrounding suburbs, James Gordon (Ben McKenzie, “Southland,” “The O.C.”) romanticized the city as a glamorous and exciting metropolis where his late father once served as a successful district attorney. Now, two weeks into his new job as a Gotham City detective and engaged to his beloved fiancĂ©e, Barbara Kean (Erin Richards, Open Grave, “Breaking In”), Gordon is living his dream – even as he hopes to restore the city back to the pure version he remembers it was as a kid. 

Brave, honest and ready to prove himself, the newly-minted detective is partnered with the brash, but shrewd police legend Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue, “Sons of Anarchy,” “Terriers,” “Vikings,” “Copper”), as the two stumble upon the city's highest-profile case ever: the murder of local billionaires Thomas and Martha Wayne. At the scene of the crime, Gordon meets the sole survivor: the Waynes' hauntingly intense 12-year-old son, Bruce (David Mazouz, “Touch”), toward whom the young detective feels an inexplicable kinship. Moved by the boy's profound loss, Gordon vows to catch the killer. 

As he navigates the often-underhanded politics of Gotham's criminal justice system, Gordon will confront imposing gang boss Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith, The Matrix films, “HawthoRNe,” Collateral), and many of the characters who will become some of fiction's most renowned, enduring villains, including a teenaged Selina Kyle/the future Catwoman (acting newcomer Camren Bicondova) and Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor, “The Walking Dead,” Another Earth). 

Although the crime drama will follow Gordon's turbulent and singular rise through the Gotham City police department, led by Police Captain Sarah Essen (Zabryna Guevara, “Burn Notice”), it also will focus on the unlikely friendship Gordon forms with the young heir to the Wayne fortune, who is being raised by his unflappable butler, Alfred (Sean Pertwee, "Camelot," “Elementary”). It is a friendship that will last them all of their lives, playing a crucial role in helping the young boy eventually become the crusader he's destined to be.

Gotham is scheduled to premiere sometime during the 2014-2015 TV Season.

Taking place during the anniversary of the original Ultimate Spider-Man Peter Parker's death and at the home of May Parker, Miles Morales, the current Ultimate Spider-Man, as well as Aunt May herself, Mary Jane Watson, Gwen Stacy, and those close to Peter life reflect on their lost friend, not knowing that sinister plans are in motion. You can read the preview via the source post at CBR here... And it also introduces a new "Spider-Man" character that looks awfully like "Ultimate Iron Spider"?

From the costume alone and being at the center of the splash page, who could possibly be under the mask of this new iteration of the costume Earth-616 Peter Parker wore when he fought alongside Iron Man during the Civil War? We'll just have to wait and see.

We'll find out more when "Ultimate Spider-Man #200" hits comic book stores on April 2.
