Batman & Bill

PG-13

Everyone thinks that Bob Kane created Batman, but that’s not the whole truth. One author makes it his crusade to make it known that Bill Finger, a struggling writer, actually helped invent the iconic superhero, from concept to costume to the very character we all know and love. Bruce Wayne may be Batman’s secret identity, but his creator was always a true mystery.

Truly a beautiful story told in a very interesting and emotional way. The success of one of the greatest hero\brand in the world contrast with the story of his recently "discovered" cocreator. Bill Finger's credits is not just a win for his family or his legacy, is a win for what is right and what is fair, after all, isn't that what Batman is all about?

A MUST WATCH for every comic book fan. Its a tragic and shameful real story. So emotional and shocking.. Fuck you DC Comics and fuck you Bob Kane. W.B. is all about money. I wondered why DC never promoted this doc but after I saw it, I understood why. I'm so furious and broken hearted. 10/10 from me. RIP Bill Finger.
