Rare BATMAN (1989) Preview Video

A lot can happen in 25 years. When Warner Bros. was pushing Tim Burton‘s Batman, released on this day in 1989, changed the landscape for superhero movies. But at the time, the studio had to convince many people that there was good reason to make a Batman movie. More to the point, Warner Bros. put in a lot of effort to convince people that a serious take on Batman was a good idea, rather than a continuation of the Adam West concept for the character.

One tool used to make the case for this new Batman was a 20-minute documentary feature showing the history of the character, and detailing the thought and work that went into Burton’s film. In celebration of the film’s 25th anniversary that doc has been dropped onto YouTube, and you can watch it above.
