It was announced today that Batman will tour the UK in an eye-catching Batman-inspired mobile van, in a Santa Claus cave alternative this Christmas.
The Caped Crusader will first appear in Gotham, then stop in Nottingham and Birmingham on Thursday, December 9, and Manchester and Leeds on Friday, December 10, delivering DC goodies to the first 30 fans from each location.
Anyone who visits Batman and enters the contest will have a chance to win one of five full DC packs this Christmas, those who cannot attend in person will be able to enter online.
The tour will begin in Gotham, at Rushcliffe which, despite its name, is far from DC’s Caped Crusader’s hometown.
Then the tour van will visit Nottingham and Birmingham on Thursday 9 December, and Manchester and Leeds on Friday 10 December.
Santa and Batman have a surprising amount of similarities to the two reclusive lifestyles, being spotted on rooftops and knowing who has been mean or nice. The Batman-themed traveling van will be instantly recognizable with the iconic Bat-Symbol engraved on the side. Inside, you can take a peek at the festive Batman exhibit, complete with Christmas decorations to fit the Dark Knight himself, including black Christmas trees.
