Holy Franchise, Batman!: Bringing the Caped Crusader to the Screen by Gary Collinson


From the early movie serials of the 1940s through recent animated incarnations, the entire screen history of one of the most successful media franchises of all time, the Dark Knight Detective

Since the Caped Crusader first made the leap from comics to silver screen in the early 1940s, generations of audiences have been captivated by the screen adventures of Batman, establishing the celebrated comic book hero as a true icon of popular culture. Now, this book begins with the early movie serials of the 1940s and charts the development of Batman's many exploits across both live action and animation, presenting a comprehensive overview of his illustrious screen career. From the classic 1960s television series starring Adam West and Burt Ward to the hugely successful blockbuster feature films from directors Tim Burton, Joel Schumacher, and Christopher Nolan, as well as early Saturday morning cartoon outings and the acclaimed "DC Animated Universe," this book explores the evolution of Batman on a journey that has taken him from camp crime fighter to Dark Knight.
