Your First Look at the Batman Live Arena Tour Show

10 Comments

First Spider-Man, and now Batman. Apparently turning superheroes into live stage shows is the new “in” thing. And from what I’ve been reading about the seemingly ill-fated Spider-man show, though, it’s not a cheap endeavor. In fact, they sound pretty damn expensive, and this “Batman Live” show is no exception. Check our your first look at Batman, Robin the Boy Wonder, and Joker, among other members of Batman’s Rogues Gallery that will be hitting the stage very soon.

For the first time in DC Comics history, see Batman the world’s most popular DC Super Hero as you’ve never seen him before, in an all-new, live-action arena adventure, set to take the world by storm. Premiering in the UK in Summer 2011, Batman Live – World Arena Tour is a multi-million pound stage production of unprecedented scale and a must-see for families and Batman fans everywhere.

Based on an original story being created exclusively for the show, Batman Live is a theatrical extravaganza of thrilling stunts, acrobatic acts and illusions. Never before has Gotham City, Wayne Manor, the Batcave and Arkham Asylum been brought to life on stage in a more visually exciting way. Join Batman and Robin as they battle their nemesis The Joker and other super-villains such as The Riddler, Catwoman, The Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn, set on destroying Gotham City.

Totally authentic, bold and awe-inspiring, Batman Live will be a completely new way to experience the world of Batman. This is one adventure you do not want to miss!

Curiously, the UK gets the show first this July, before the Bat finally returns home in 2012 for North American dates. Find out more info and future showtime dates at the official site.

What do you think? Is it something you’d see when it comes to your town?

    As bad as this is it could be “Spiderman: Trn off The Dark” bad. I mean you remember how bad the Green Goblin costume was?
    The thing is they’re trying to go for a true comic book feel. I think that the metallic and super armored look of the suits (especially Robin’s) is a bit much, but other than that the rest is spot on. I mean people are gonna complain it’s not dark enough, and if you want to talk about dark that’s all well and good, but how well would that work for a Broadway level show that’s being marketed for kids as much as adults. If they make this Phantom of The Opera dark then the kids can’t or won’t want to see it. There will be some darkness to the show I’m sure, but like “Batman: Brave and the Bold” has shown a lighter Batman isn’t always bad. Besides the costumes could’ve looked way worse. That said comicbooks as stageplay/musicals or whatever is a bad, bad idea. Stunt show sure, but this is a bad idea!

    Joker was pretty good after he got warmed up, some of the other villains costumes really didn’t look great, most notably Catwomen, and i’m really not digging Batman & Robin’s robot suits from the future, they look almost like the horrible incident that was the nipple suits just minus the nips. I dunno, im going to wait for a full review untill I really decide if im going to see this. Still it does look better then the tragedy that is Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.

    This isn’t the same costume it looks like they use in the thing from what I’ve seen. Which makes me sad, these look so good. And then they go with something a lot cruddier.
