DC Shines the Bat-Signal Across the World in Honor of Batman Day(September 16, 2019 Burbank, CA) Batman Day is almost here and to celebrate the Dark Knights 80 years as the Worlds Greatest Detective, DC and Warner Bros. are lighting up the night skies by projecting the iconic Bat-Signal, as well as producing fan celebrations, in major cities around the globe on Saturday, September 21.

Like fireworks on New Years Eve, the glow of the distinctive Bat silhouette will illuminate the edifices of skyscrapers and landmarks around the world in rolling fashion as the sun sets in each city. And just like a solar eclipse, this may be a once-in-a-lifetime event!

The Bat-Signal is easily one of the most recognizable images among all superhero iconography and this is going to be a remarkable sight as we transcend borders, languages and cultures to bring us all together with this single experience, said Pam Lifford, President of Warner Bros. Global Brands and Experiences. We are proud to send up the Bat-Signal on Batman Day because it is an important beacon of inspiration that makes us all believe that its possible to take hardship and turn it into something good. Batman Day is a global celebration for all the fans.

Fans can zoom in and follow the festivities with the new interactive Batman Bat-Tracker launched by DC today. As cities flip the famous switch illuminating the insignia, the Batman Bat-Tracker will mirror the real-time projections. Additional information on Bat-Signal celebrations and activations in those cities can be found at Batman80.com.

To see one of the projections in person, all that is required is to go outside shortly before 8pm local time in cities set to light up their skies. So, start deciding which Batman t-shirt to wear Melbourne, Australia, because you will be the first to celebrate under the Bat-Signal at Fed Square facing Flinders Street, 9 hours ahead of London and 14 hours ahead of New York (Gotham City!).

Other cities to send up the Bat-Signal include:

Tokyo at MAGNET by SHIBUYA109 at Shibuya Scramble Crossing

Berlin at Potzdamer Platz 11

Paris at Galeries Lafayette

Barcelona at Museu Nacional dArt de Catalunya

London at the Senate House

S Ło Paulo at Ita sa - LMB

New York TBA

Montreal at Complex Dupuis

Mexico City at Torre Reforma

Los Angeles at City Hall

Of course, a Batman Day celebration wouldnt be complete without something extra special in Gotham City. Barnes & Noble Union Square is hosting a talent signing and panel discussion moderated by DC Publisher Dan DiDio and featuring award-winning Batman writers and artists Scott Snyder, Peter J. Tomasi, James Tynion, IV and Brad Walker, as well as special activities all day long for kids and families.

In Los Angeles, DC and Warner Bros. will host a special Batman 5K night run and fan celebration. Fans can sign-up to participate at DCBatmanRun.com.
