2014 San Diego Comic Con :: 75 Years of Batman

So it only took me until I'm almost 40, but I finally got to my first San Diego Comic Con! And I gotta tell 'ya, it is everything it is cracked up to be. Fun, amazing, crazy, packed, insane, awesome...but enough about me HAW HAW!

Here I am with my 'Professional' badge because I am a pro, baby! More on the project that got me there in the future; today I am going to show you some pics from the Warner Brothers/DC Comics Batman movie display!

But first - after all these years on this digital playground, I finally met Dork Hordak himself, Reis! Meeting Reis in person was definitely one of the Con highlights! And I have to say, he's taller in person than he looks online.

Now on to the Bat-stuff!

Yes sir, that is the one and (probably not) only Ben Affleck Bat Cowl!

The thing looks great. The tiny ears are a nice change of pace, and it has a leathery texture, unlike all the shiny rubber cowls of movies past.

Upon entering the convention center, I made a B-Line straight for the Batman display, and I wasn't dissapointed  to find this beauty rotating around in a glass case.

Also on display were masks from movies past, including Bane's re-breather or whatever this mask did for him besides mess up his voice.

Cowls cowls and more cowls!

Here's the statue of Batman from the end of The Dark Knight Rises.

Anne Hathaway's Catwoman goggles. It's a testament to Nolan's 'realism' that these things did not look fake up close. They look like they could actually function, and not like a simple prop.

A couple of Michelle Pfieffer's Catwoman masks, the Riddler's...whatever...and Penguin's mayoral campaign button.
Christian Bale's Batsuit...

...and a couple of his cowls.

All the Joker Goon masks from the epic opening bank robbery sequence in The Dark Knight.

And last but not least for today...Michael Keaton's Batman costume. He is pretty short.

Well, that's it for today's post. Stay Tuned for more from the 2014 San Diego Comic Con!


  1. Awesome! Love that they brought out the Batman props, but seeing you and Reis meeting up is even better. Looking forward to more pics from your trip.

  2. Reis is a celebrity!!!
    After reading pop culture blogs during so much time, I'm glad to see some of the people behind all this fun :D
    Now it is a fact: Clowns are scary and ugly.

  3. How cool! I think I agree with Brian here... seeing all the Batman stuff was cool but seeing you geeking out with Reis was even cooler! I hope you guys had an awesome time at SDCC! Maybe someday...

  4. Wonderful! I like those Mezco Dark Knight Returns dollies!
