Last night, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment helped San Diego and Comic-Con 2014 celebrate the 75th anniversary of Batman by unveiling life-size recreations of The Dark Knight’s iconic cowl headpiece and cape to a capacity crowd at the fittingly named Hard Rock Hotel’s Legends Room.
Guests enjoyed creative renditions of the celebrated costume, as inspired by the upcoming “Batman: Arkham Knight” video game and re-imagined by top artists and Hollywood talent – including Zack Snyder (Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice), Will Arnett (The Lego Movie) and Jeff Lemire, among others.
A few participating artists joined the Cape/Cowl/Create fun and showcased their contributions. Other celebrity guests offered their best Caped Crusader poses before autographing blank capes and cowls.
The Cape/Cowl/Create exhibition is open Friday through Sunday (12 – 7 p.m.) and free to the public (Hard Rock Hotel, Legends Room). Some of the collaborations – designed by world-renowned artists or signed by Thursday’s attendees – will be auctioned for charity in 2015.
