#Batman75 today

CELEBRATE! Today, Batman is 75 years old! Happy Birthday!
But, the cover says May 1939, right? Here's a statement from DC Comics about why March 30 is his official birth date:
"Based on historical data from the Registrar of Copyrights, DC Entertainment recognizes that the world's most popular Super Hero — Batman — was first introduced to the public 75 years ago on March 30, 1939, in Detective Comics #27.
It was common practice in 1939, and remains so today, for publications to go on sale prior to their indicated cover date. Thus, while the Bat-Man (as he was then known) first appeared in the May 1939 cover-dated issue of Detective Comics #27, that issue actually hit newsstands on March 30, 1939."
So, REJOICE! Today is the day! ‪#‎WEareBATMAN‬

@GOTHAM Coming To FOX

GOTHAM is an origin story of the great DC Comics super villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”), GOTHAM follows one cop's rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time. 
Here's a look of some of the character photos that have been released.

Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle, a.k.a. Catwoman
