75 Years of Batman @ Pavilion KL

Batman character made its first appearance in the comic book on May 1939 and this iconic character has been around for 75 years this year.

There is a exhibition at Pavilion KL somewhere in the middle of this month which commemorate the milestone which Batman has achieve all through the years.

At the main entrance, a Batman figure and the "Batpod" were on display. The Batpod is integrated to the Tumbler and served as an escape pod. It is armed with dual front mounted cannons, machine guns and grappling hooks.

The exhibition was held mainly at the main concourse of Pavilion KL with Visa as the main sponsor of the event.

The chronology of the character since its first inception until present day can be found on both side of the wall leading to the main concourse.

Batmobile Tumbler is the latest incarnation of Batmobile and it has some cool features. However, The Bat is clearly missing from the exhibition.

I remember I used to watch the Batman TV series when I was a kid. The TV series was started in 1966 with Adam West donning The Dark Knight suit. I reckon it is this TV series which got me interested in Batman when I was a child.

Since the 1980s until now, 4 actors had been chosen for the role of the Caped Crusader; Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney and Christian Bale. I believe Michael Keaton and Christian Bale portray the dark and grim character the best.

The cowl wore by George Clooney in the Batman and Robin movie.

Figures and vehicles from the The Dark Knight Trilogy which are pretty movie accurate.

The batmobile as appear in Batman and Batman Returns movie. This is as original as it can get when it comes to batmobile.

Other action figures on display consisting of Batman himself, Batman's allies and his most feared villains.

Ben Affleck will be the Batman in the upcoming Batman vs Superman movie. I suspect the batsuit design for the upcoming movie will be back to the original comic book design as to the dark armor we are used to see.
