Who among us hasn't wished that our city had it's very own Batman? You may be closer to that reality than you think. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a Batman stage show is in the works. Should you start practicing your Batusi now?
Not so fast. "The show is neither a musical nor a Broadway-bound theatrical production but rather an elaborate arena production aimed at kids and families," says THR. Kids? Hell, I'm gonna be the first in line. Stan Berkowitz and Alan Burnett, writers for countless DC animated properties, will be developing the script for the show which will feature "numerous villains."
Warner Bros. and DC Comics are working with Nick Grace Management and Water Lane Prods. (the companies who gave us "Walking With Dinosaurs") to create what will likely be a very elaborate show. "No timeline for the 'Batman' show is set, though one scenario involves aiming to come out after Christopher Nolan's third 'Batman' movie in 2012. Another scenario has it opening in 2011."
Considering the struggling Spider-Man musical, do you think this show will ever get off the ground? Would you go see it?
