Picture Trivia
          The superhero character Batman (secret identity of Bruce Wayne) was created by Bob Kane in May 1939. Kane was inspired by a drawing of Leonardo da Vinci’s bat-wing machine, which can be attached to a person’s back that will enable him to fly. When Kane saw a re-run of the film The Mark of Zorro (1920), starring Douglas Fairbank. The character Zorro (created by Johnston McCulley) gave him the idea on how to create Batman’s character. The mask of the original Batman, on the other hand, was similar to the costume worn by a stylish killer in the film The Bat Whispers (1931). Batman first appeared on Detective Comics #27 before it had its own comics title.
          Before the popular Batman TV series of the 1960s starring Adam West, the character was first heard on radio, voiced by Stacy Harris, and had a movie, The Batman (1943), starring Lewis Wilson.  Robert Lowery played the character in Batman and Robin (1949). Adam West also played Batman on the big screen in Batman and the Fearsome Foursomes (1966).
          Batman portrayers include Michael Keaton in Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992), Val Kilmer in Batman Forever (1995), George Clooney in Batman & Robin (1997), and Christian Bale in Batman Begins (2005) and The Dark Knight (2008).
