Over 160 Pictures and Video from THE BATMAN EXHIBIT at Warner Bros. in Burbank

     June 28, 2014


This summer, Warner Bros. VIP Studio Tour celebrates Batman’s 75th anniversary with The Batman Exhibit, which was created in close collaboration with DC Entertainment.  Recently, I was one of several lucky journalists invited to attend a super cool event that coincided with the opening of the new attraction and featured a tour of the exhibit.  What made this especially fun and exciting was that it marked the first time all seven Batman films have come together in a themed exhibit on the studio’s historic Burbank lot.

We began our tour with a visit to the Picture Car Vault located on the studio lot, where a selection of the Caped Crusader’s most iconic vehicles, including the Batpod, Bathammer, Tumbler and Batmobile, are showcased.  The Bat-Signal used to call Bruce Wayne’s alter ego at a time of need is also on display.  While we were there, Danny DeVito, who played the Penguin in Batman Returns, stopped by to welcome us, pose for photos, and turn on the iconic Bat-Signal.  Visitors to the Picture Car Vault will have an opportunity to activate the Bat-Signal and pose at a Batman-themed interactive green screen photo opportunity.  Hit the jump for pictures, video and more.

Batman Tour CartsNext, we boarded a specially-themed Batman tram that took us to the newly transformed Studio Museum, where the entire ground floor has been dedicated to the Caped Crusader, and visitors can see costumes, gadgetry, props and artwork from all seven Batman films on exhibition together.  On the way over, our tour guide pointed out the L.A. riverbed that runs parallel to the studio’s backlot and explained that all the speed tests for the Tumbler were done there.  She also revealed that the mountain and bushes beyond the riverbed doubled as the entrance to the Batcave.

At the Museum, we got to see the original suits worn by Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney and Christian Bale as well as the costumes worn by the supporting characters and villains, including Robin, The Joker, Two-Face, Catwoman, The Penguin, Poison Ivy, The Riddler, Mr. Freeze, Batgirl and Alfred.  A wide range of one-of-a-kind props and weapons were also on display, including Batarangs, the Joker’s cards, Two-Face’s coins, one of the Penguin’s umbrellas and Bane’s bomb.  There was also a historic display of iconic Batman comic book covers that offers a unique and colorful backdrop for visitors to take photos to post on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

From the Batsuit to the Batmobile, Warner Bros. VIP Studio Tour’s new attraction, The Batman Exhibit, offers an amazing way to delve into the world of this iconic superhero and get up close to authentic costumes, gadgetry, props, vehicles and more.  The exhibit is on display for a limited time this summer.  Reservations are recommended, and children eight years or older are welcome.  Tickets are $54 per person and can be purchased online at www.wbstudiotour.com or by calling 818-972-TOUR (8687).

Here’s two studio provided videos on the costumes followed by the tour.  The pictures are further down the page.
