Batman getting his own live-action stage show

04.26.2010

Don’t freak out just yet. There’s not going to be a Batman musical or Broadway show, like tragically almost happened to poor Spider-man. Rather, this new stage show is supposed to be a family friendly action experience, with nary a musical note to be found.

The team behind Walking with the Dinosaurs, a similarly targeted show, will be working on the project and Batman: The Animated Series vets Alan Burnett and Stan Berkowitz will be writing it.

It’s a nationwide tour, will use many of the series’ villains, and if I was eight, I would be begging my parents to take me. Shit, I still might go.

As to what exactly this would be like, I’m not quite sure, but I keep flashing back to the Indian Jones live action stunt show at MGM Studios in Disneyworld, which I’ve posted below, but you know, a lot longer and not running twelve times a day.

What do you think about the idea?

Mark Hamill could do a live action version of the Joker if he lost a lot of weight and looked exactly like his animated counter part.

Oh Please be 'On Ice'

I want the Joker skating away, and doing his disappearing pencil trick for the kiddies.

I was thinking the same thing TAE K. I saw the live action Batman show at six flags several years ago as well.

But their Batman roller coaster wasn't as good as their Superman one.

"Spider-Man: the Musical"...

"Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark" IS still coming to Broadway. Although it's been delayed, the show is still scheduled to open.
Broadway.com has it on their list of releases.

I was chosen from the audience to be in the Indiana Jones stunt show last time I was down there in '07. I'd seen the show many times as a little kid and I was finally able to be in it. Great day.

Meh

Rather see an hour long weekly live-action TV show. With hit shows like LOST and HEROS and the popularity of BAT'S and his villans it could be HUGE.

Only if they return to the camp of the Adam West series. Bill Hader as Bruce Wayne and what the hell, Justin Bieber as Robin just for the ratings. Mark Hamill return to the joker and Rosie O'Donnell as the Penguin.

Several of the Six Flags across the country had Batman Stunt Shows. They have the DC license, so why not. I seen one a few years ago at Six Flags New England. No longer doing it but gues others still are with a newer Batman Begins theme

When I was a kid...

there was a touring Batman and Robin show that my parents took me to at Rupp Arena in Lexington, KY - late 70's early 80's. It was a highlight of my childhood. I left with some sweet Mego figures too. I'd go to this.

This sounds really familiar...

Didn't they do this back in the '90s when Batman Returns came out? I remember seeing a stage show at Six Flags when I was little. It was awesome!

Yeah, there was a stage show at least at the NJ Six Flags for Batman Returns. I remember seeing it as a kid and then a few years ago right before they revamped the area with what turned out to be a terrible Dark Knight ride. Before that, it was this amazing Chiller rollercoaster made for Batman & Robin - only good thing to come out of that movie. But yeah, the stage show was pretty kickass, so if this new one is anything like it, it'll be amazing.

When I first saw the heading to this article, and assumed it was a broadway musical, I envisioned Joel Schumacher having his wettest dream ever!
