Unlike Spiderman: Turn Off The Critics, the BATMAN LIVE – World Arena Tour is a stunt-show, albeit probably one with more plot than the old second act of STOTD. The story is devised by Allan Heinberg, Stan Berkowitz and Alan Burnett, and cast photos from the production — which kicks off in the UK — have just been released. There’s also a piece from the BBC which suggests this show will include tons of aerial stunts:

Tuesday’s event gave a glimpse of some of Batman Live’s set designs, including the 100ft (30.5m) stage that will house scale models of Gotham City and a circus tent. “This hasn’t been done before on an arena scale, so things are going to have to be enormous,” said set and props designer Es Devlin, who has designed concert stages for Lady Gaga and Take That. “Batman is not a superhero – he can’t fly so we don’t have to pretend he’s doing extraordinary things,” she continued. “But there’s tons of aerial performance like zip wires and commando lines.”


Hopefully, these stunts will not fill up the hospital ward.

  1. I have no idea what this is or what to even compare it to, but…other than Batman & Robin, whose costumes are hideous, the other characters seem pretty on-model.

    “Batman is not a superhero?” what kind of project does Es Delvin think she’s working on?

    Somebody mistook having superpowers with being a superhero. Those two things are not necessarily the same.

    And if Batman has a stunt injury, his costume will protect him!

    Relax, Dara. The costumes look bad close-up because they’re supposed to be seen from a distance in the theater! They’ll read perfectly fine from just about anywhere in the house.

  22. Big whoop…been there, done that! At some point during my time as a DC editor, I was assigned to rewrite and/or write many of the Batman stunt shows that ran (may be still running for all I know) at all the Six Flags Parks around the country. We even had one that was a WATER stunt show…and a scaled down version, for malls. This looks a lot like those, with production values.

  25. The women look terrific … nice, tight costumes that are pretty accurate :)

    The Riddler actor looks terrific … Penguin is pretty good … I’m a little disappointed with the color scheme of the Joker’s vest, but perhaps that’s to add some contrast for people viewing this from a distance.

    Might anyone remember a DC Comics stage show from the early/mid 1980s? I had gone to see it once or twice when I was about 5 or 6 years old. To the best of my recollection, it featured Batman, Robin, Superman, Wonder Woman, and the Joker. I am certain there were other characters but I cannot remember which ones. I saw it at MSG in NY.
