Behind the Scenes on Restoring Micheal Keaton’s Batman
While wandering the web I came across this fantastic video on DC’s Youtube channel that shows the work that went behind bringing the 1989 Batsuit back to life.
As part of 2019’s San Diego Comic-Con fans got a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see eighty years of Dark Knight history up close. Authentic props and costumes were on display for “The Batman Experience” and I wish I could of experienced it! No collection of Bat-costumes would be complete without Michael Keaton’s suit from the 1989 movie. However, years of exposure had left his iconic costume in a degraded state.
In the video below, watch how Ironhead studios restored the suit back to its full glory.

Trailer Released For New SUPERMAN: YEAR ONE Comic Series
Check out the release trailer for DC’s upcoming comic book series Superman: Year One. Created by writer Frank Miller (Dark Knight Returns) and artist John Romita Jr (Kick-Ass).
This new and exciting, three issue story line, will retell the origin story of Superman.
Here’s the synopsis:
“Superman: Year One is a coming-of-age story for the future Man of Steel, featuring a young alien-boy just trying to find his place in a new world. Faced with the need to hide his heritage and powers in order to survive, Clark will find his humanity through the grounding of the Kent family and the relationships that will define the man he will become. Told by two of the most revered voices in comics, Superman: Year One is more than a superhero story – it’s about the choices made by Clark Kent on his path to becoming a legend. It’s a testament to the importance of choosing to become a hero.”
I love what Miller did with Batman in The Dark Knight Returns, a comic book I would recommend as a must read! So it’ll be interesting to see what he does with Superman. The title already following the footsteps of his previous work, Batman: Year One
The first part to this new story will arrive this month, 19th June. Followed by issue No. 2 in August and No. 3 in October. Then all three issues will be released as a single volume in November.
New Promo for DC’s upcoming “Elseworlds” Features Batwoman in Action
The upcoming, three-night special known as “Elseworlds” will span across CW’s main shows: Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl. In the lead up to this event we’ve seen photos, showing Arrow (Stephen Amell) and The Flash (Grant Gustin) switching roles. In the video below, one of two new promos, we see Batwoman (Ruby Rose) in action for the first time! I don’t know about you but I’m excited to see this character brought to life.
This crossover event will bring Green Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl to Gotham City where they will meet Lois Lane, Nora Fries (wife of villain Mr. Freeze) and introduce Rose as the fictional hero, Batwoman. What do you think of the teaser and does Rose fit the part?
