To mark the 80th anniversary of Batman, DC is celebrating all year long with live events, fan celebrations, exclusive products and more across the globe. At Warner Bros. Movie World, Batman watched over Surfers Paradise on Friday ahead of the launch of the DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains event at Warner Bros. Movie World.
Batman made his trademark entrance by gliding into Cavill Mall from the roof of the Novotel before joining Robin in the Batmobile as the dynamic duo patrolled the streets for the morning.
Village Roadshow Theme Parks chief operating Officer, Bikash Randhawa said Movie World is proud to take part in the global celebrations with Batman being a key figure of the Gold Coast theme park. “As a proud supporter of Batman and DC we are excited to take part in the year-long global celebrations,” he said. “For 80 years, the Dark Knight has stood as a symbol of determination, bravery and justice to generations of fans. Since appearing in the pages of DETECTIVE COMICS #27 on March 30, 1939, Batman continues to leave his mark in every form of entertainment imaginable.
Randhawa continued: “In what was a must-see event for Surfers Paradise, Batman celebrated the anniversary in style as he performed one of his most iconic stunts with the picturesque beach and skyline in the background as he glided 36 floors down from the roof of the Novotel. Movie World will also be celebrating Batman’s 80th Anniversary during the annual DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains event at the park with the new Light Show Parade paying homage to the caped crusader featuring a display of some of the most memorable Batmobiles through time.”
From 29 June – 13 July, the DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains event returns to Movie World with new character appearances and the all new light-show parade at the special time of 5.30pm followed by The Joker Funhouse Party from 6pm – 8pm.
