Batman And Bill



Batman And Bill


Wednesday 26 June 8.30pm Channel 039

Everyone thinks that Bob Kane created Batman, but that's not the whole truth. One author makes it his crusade to seek justice for Bill Finger, a struggling writer who was the key figure in creating the iconic superhero, from concept to costume to the very character we all know and love. Bruce Wayne may be Batman's secret identity, but his creator was always a true mystery. For more than 75 years Bob Kane had been the sole legally acknowledged creator of Batman. The 2012 book, Bill the Boy Wonder: The Secret Co-creator of Batman by Marc Tyler Nobleman, challenged that notion by pointing out how Bill Finger is actually the person behind Batman and its mythos. Upon the release of the book, other comic book historians and industry figures also offered their thoughts about Finger. In 2015, DC Entertainment and the family of Bill Finger reached an agreement that recognises Finger's contributions to the Batman family.
