Happy Anniversary BATMAN '89 (And A Surprise To Come?)



On June 23rd 1989, the world was reintroduced to The Dark Knight.
As a kid, I grew up with the campy Adam West television show "Batman 66." It's still a hoot to watch the show these days. But for many, that was Batman, as well as his Blue Suited version on the Super Friends cartoon show, which I also loved.
So when I went with my family to the movie theaters to see 1989's "Batman," I was thrilled to see a much darker, weirder version of Gotham City. And to see this new, ominous, black suited Batman was...just so cool. With an amazing performance from the legendary Jack Nicholson as The Joker, a new era of Batman mythology was born.
It was a box office blockbuster, the first of it's kind since 1978's "Superman: The Movie." And it was fitting to have the two greatest superheroes have such massive hit films.
I grew up as a Superman guy, but I had to admit that in 1989, the torch was passed. Batman became (and still is to this day) the Top Dog.
I know I'm not the only one that had great memories of 1989. Many still consider Michael Keaton the definitive Bruce Wayne/Batman. Which is amazing, considering how he was originally received when cast as The Dark Knight. But director Tim Burton knew something we didn't and it's now movie history.

So reflecting on the 31st anniversary of "Batman '89," the rumors are that Michael Keaton is set to reprise his role in the DCEU Flash film "Flashpoint." An absolute win, if this happens. Seeing Keaton once again as Batman is something many have wished for and knew could happen. A 'Dark Knight Returns,' older Bruce Wayne would just be a dream to see. I truly didn't think this was possible, but shame on me.
The comic book movie world has been making my dreams come true for years now. Why not another impossible dream?
Happy anniversary Batman '89!
