Caped Crusader comes to Causeway Bay

Times Square will become a corner of Gotham City for a month as comic book superhero Batman watches over the streets from the top of the square’s bell tower.

To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the superhero, Times Square, DC Comics and Warner Bros will erect a three-meter high Batman statue on the bell tower next Friday, Metropolis Daily reported Friday.

Replicas of Batman’s three classic cars will also be on show and more than three dozen figures and toys owned by collector Paul Ho will be on display.

A 3D painting of the cartoon’s main characters will also be exhibited in the lobby on the second floor. The painting, which is 10 meters wide, was created by local artist Terence Choi.

Visitors taking the shopping center’s lifts will also be able to catch a look at Batman and his crime-fighting partner Robin from the classic 1960s Batman TV series.

The exhibition ends on July 20.

The superhero first appeared in 1939 in “Detective Comics” published by DC Comics and is one of the most popular comic heroes in history, going on to inspire several hit Hollywood movies.
