It's been 25 years ago today since this little masterpiece opened in theaters.

Warner Brothers had found themselves in a very difficult situation at
the time. The marketing director at Warner told me that Adam West had
been going to various media outlets stating that he should be Batman,
that his Batman was the only true Batman, and that this dark thing that
Warner was doing had nothing to do with Batman at all. This caused a
problem for Warner Brothers because it created doubts in the minds of
the film distributors and merchandisers around the world.

And so to convince investors, they made a preview video showing how good "dark" Batman would be.

Wow. Very cool piece of history there. Back then, I was very disappointed with Michael Keaton as Batman... until I saw the movie. After that, any other Batman/Bruce Wayne seemed crappy in comparison.

How about that? Without this video, we would've have gotten this dark Batman story at all.

@shakin: A very cool piece of art, though I question the decision to include some of these styles. "Lego Batman"... really?

The Batman vs. Predator one looks cool.

The Man Behind Captain Nintendo - Chapter 6


In the middle of a lengthy memoir of working at Nintendo comes a story about attending the Batman premiere as a nobody. Awesome story, and the rest of the chapters, dare I say, by turns warm and break my heart.

Probably never gonna happen, but think of the possibilities... and the smell of Metamucil on the set...
