Batman Day is coming back on 9/17/16 and I can’t wait. I’m going to break out my limited edition 4K transfer of Batman and Robin and watch it over and over and over again. I can’t wait to marvel at Batman (George Clooney) and Robin (Chris O’Donnell) as they face off against the subtle Mr. Freeze (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and the acting genius of Uma Thurman as his diabolical associate Poison Ivy! Actually, that’s not going to happen, as I don’t believe such a thing exists. I’m all for Batman Day and that means I’ll probably stop by a local comics shop. Heck, I might even wear a Batman t-shirt while I’m there.
DC Entertainment will join millions of fans in celebration of the pop culture phenomenon as Saturday, September 17th is officially announced as BATMAN DAY 2016.
Celebrating Batman’s endearing legacy with generations of fans, DC Entertainment will once again fete the iconic legend with festivities at thousands of comic book retailers, bookstores, schools and libraries across the country. Retail activities include free comic book giveaways and talent signings. Confirmed signing events feature blockbuster talent like Frank Miller, Scott Snyder, Tom King, James Tynion IV, and Greg Capullo with many more to be announced.
In addition to DC Entertainment, BATMAN DAY participating partners include many Warner Bros. divisions, as well as Warner Bros. Consumer Products licensees — Capstone Young Readers, Penguin Random House, Scholastic, DK Licensing, Bendon, and HarperCollins. These partnerships provide the unique opportunity for retail and digital promotion across various media in celebration of the Dark Knight.
The annual fan-favorite event, now in its third year, was first introduced to honor the iconic character’s 75th anniversary. Continuing the BATMAN DAY tradition, DC Entertainment will present Bat-centric promotions, fan giveaways and more, all to honor the character that has become a Super Hero to many generations and continues to inspire fans across the globe.
The official BATMAN DAY event kit will include activity sheets, trivia, and games and will be available for download on http://www.dccomics.com/batmandaykit.
Greg never learns. He started Tigr Tigr as a replacement to his other blog, Ventvox.com. Ventvox.com ran as a pop culture blog from 2008-2013 and violently crashed on the very sad day of October 17, 2013. Greg's experience with blogging has grown within the past 10 years and Tigr Tigr is constantly evolving! Tigr Tigr has most recently added a both a forum and Tigr Tigr Podcast. Tigr Tigr Podcast can be found on iTunes, Google Play, Soundcloud and wherever good podcasts are located.
