Apr 26 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Well, the caped crusader is about to spread his wings and fly to areas far beyond Gotham City. The Dark Knight is expected to be coming to a stage near you. “Batman Live” will soon be on it’s way to major cities across the United States in an all new road show.

DC Comics, along with Warner Brothers is currently working on a Batman stage show called “Batman Live.” The show is described by Heat Vision as being “an elaborate arena production aimed at kids and families” with a large number of Batman’s enemies on board for the trip. Alan Burnett, who wrote “Green Lantern: First Flight” is said to be working on the script and storyline for the new Batman stage performance. The team which created the award winning show entitled, “Walking With Dinosaurs,” Nick Grace Management and Walter Lane Prods are said to be collaborating to make this project a huge success.

So far there is no release date for the show. According to Heat Vision, there are two possible starting times, the first of which has the show launching in 2011, and the other says that it is possible it will not begin until after the third Batman movie by Christopher Nolan plays in theaters in 2012. There have not yet been any official announcements stating that Christopher would be a part of Batman 3, he has stated before that he intended to finish the story with one last film.

“Batman Live” is simply joining it’s comic and superhero brothers in going on tour. Marvel has been working on a Spiderman show as well called, “Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark. DC Comics opened “It’s A Bird, It’s A Plane, It’s Superman” in the 1960s. A new musical of the show is being planned for Texas by Comic book scribe Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
