‘Batman’ and ‘Arthur’: Together at Last

Friday, July 9 by

The Batmobile has been spotted. That fact alone should make headlines.

But what makes the matter even more interesting is the fact that the iconic car turned up on the set of the upcoming Arthur remake, starring Russel Brand. This could mean one of two things. Either the vehicle (which appears to be the model from Batman Forever) is one of several classic cars belonging to the titular character, or Batman himself dropped by the set because he’s a huge fan of the Arthur franchise. Only time will tell.

(Spoiler Alert: Bruce Wayne is Batman)

When you think about it, Arthur Bach and Bruce Wayne are basically the same character. Both men are troubled millionaires who rely on their butlers as substitute father figures, and both are complex characters hiding behind the facade of a drunken playboy. The only real difference is that one is a deranged sociopath who spends his time ruthlessly pursuing a terrifying clown-like villain (played by Liza Minnelli), and the other is Batman. (Collider)

    I laughed out when I read that Batman dropped by the set ‘coz he’s a huge fan of the Arthur franchise. LOL! Haha! His car was way too cool to be on the streets at daytime! Its beauty was suddenly revealed, and it looked so clear to the eyes of the people. I wish I were there. Anyway, I didn’t know that the movie Arthur was a remake. Hmm, maybe I’m too young to tell, though.
