Fans across the world are uniting under the tagline #LongLiveTheBat to honour the world’s greatest detective, with DC Comics also dropping the milestone release of Detective Comics #1000. The multi-faceted global campaign will feature exclusive celebrations, special theatrical engagements, and Batman brand partnerships in major countries. Here in Malaysia, that mantle is taken up by Resorts World Genting, which presents a Batman bonanza from 1 May to 30 June.
Batty Is Eighty
At 6,000 feet above sea level, the tribute to the Dark Knight at Resorts World Genting’s SkyAvenue will be among the highest celebration anywhere in the world. Fans of the Gotham superhero will get to immerse themselves in one-of-a-kind events and exhibitions erected just for the occasion.
You’ll be able to track the history of the character via highlights like the light ball symphony, which will beam the evolution of the superhero’s legacy in crime fighting over the decades. Meanwhile, the light symphony stage will be graced by props like the Batpod, iterations of the Batmobile, and even the Tumbler that starred in Christopher Nolan’s celebrated
The Dark Knight series.
Life-sized figures of Batman in his various suits will stand guard around the premises, and a cosplay competition in June will see the venue overrun with Gotham villains like the Joker, Riddler, Penguin and other baddies from Arkham Asylum.
Children will be able to race around in mini Batmobiles, while live shows, meet-andgreets, and interactive content in the movie zone will play throughout each day. Don’t leave without viewing the special Wayang Kulit exhibition of custom Batman puppets and pick up unique Batman 80 merchandise from the raft of speciality stores on site.
Make sure to stay tuned for more details on this tribute to the hero we all deserve!
