Go Behind The Scenes Of ‘Batman’ ’89 With ‘The Making Of A Hero’ [Video]

Batman: The Making Of A Hero screenshot

ComicsAlliance's official position on Tim Burton's 1989 Batman movie may be a little more harsh than other people's, but even I can't deny its importance in bringing superheroes to life in movies. To this day, it remains a pretty fascinating film, and one of the biggest touchstones that comic books have to mass media, even when we're seeing movies like The Dark Knight and Avengers make a billion dollars at the box office.

So if you're holed up avoiding the snow -- or just looking for a way to kill time on your lunch break -- you could do a lot worse than to take 25 minutes and check out The Making of a Hero. Originally produced in the UK during the filming of Batman '89, it's a behind-the-scenes look at how the movie was made, featuring crew members like Tim Burton himself and designer Anton Furst, along with Michael Keaton, Kim Basinger and Robert Wuhl. Give it a watch below, but be warned: That jerk Bob Kane shows up to ruin everything.

Mattel Debuts 4″ Multiverse Figures Based On ‘Superman,’ ‘Superman 2,’ ‘Batman ’89′ And ‘Batman Returns’ Movies

Mattel Multiverse Batman Superman Penguin Main

Fan-favorite DC movies are getting the 4" action figure treatment from Mattel next year as part of the new Multiverse line. First among the films receiving figures will be 1978's Superman with a figure bearing the likeness of actor Christopher Reeve and a Batman 1989 figure featuring an alternate "Bruce Wayne" head bearing actor Michael Keaton's likeness. Villains will be joining the fray as well with Batman Returns versions of Catwoman (based on actress Michelle Pfeiffer) and Penguin (Danny DeVito) and Superman 2's Zod (Terence Stamp) set to roll out alongside the heroes. Batman and Zod were shown with movie-centric accessories, so it's safe to assume Superman, Catwoman and Penguin will all be packed with appropriate items when the time comes. Check out all five of Mattel's 4" Multiverse movie action figures shown at NYCC 2013, after the jump.
