batman live Batman Live unveils characters for $20 million arena tour

Somewhat overshadowed by the calamitous Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, the other big-budget superhero stage production, Batman Live, made a splash Tuesday in London with the unveiling of the key characters.

Officially announced in November, the $20-million touring arena show pits Batman and Robin against their rogues gallery in an ambitious production that features a giant video screen, a Joker hot-air balloon, recreations of several Gotham City locations — it takes 20 trucks to haul it all — and a Batmobile created by legendary Formula One designer Gordon Murray.

I’m not sure why, but I feel much better about this project than I ever did about the Spider-Man one.  Perhaps it’s because there’s no sign of goofy-ass costumes and horrible music written by people that have no investments in the characters.  Click through to see some videos.
