Genting Highlands, May 2019 – The Dark Knight, Batman is making his way here at SkyAvenue in Resorts World Genting for the next two months. In conjunction with his 80th anniversary, he will be invading the SkySymphony Stage with “The Call Is Out”, the world’s first Batman-themed audio-visual show that celebrates the 80 years of Batman’s history from 10th May 2019 to 10th July 2019.

At the launch were Resorts World Genting, Mr Lim Keong Han, Vice President, Resorts Operations and Mr Kevin Tann, Vice President-Entertainment & Events. Representing Warner Bros Consumer Products Southeast Asia was Neal Rudge, CEO of Pacific Licensing Studio.

“I have been a fan of Batman ever since I was a boy, following his adventures from comic books to television series to blockbuster movies, toys, videogames and collectables,” says Mr Kevin Tann.

“For 80 years, Batman has been part of my life and yours too. It is truly gratifying that Warner Bros has chosen Resorts World Genting to kick off the grand celebration of Batman’s 80th birthday in Southeast Asia. This is the first part of a year-long homage to the World’s Greatest Detective, celebrating his greatest achievements and iconic moments through the cutting-edge blend of music, visuals and kinetic technology only available through our SkySymphony stage. There are so many ways to interact with the Dark Knight at SkyAvenue over the next two months that I’m sure Batman fans will love the experience and many new fans will be born. Long live the Bat! Here’s to 80 years more!” further elaborated by Mr Kevin Tann.

On the other hand, Neal added, ‘First appearing as socialite incognito crime-fighter Bruce Wayne in Detective Comics #27 in 1939, Batman has stood as a symbol of determination, bravery and justice for generations of fans over these 80 years. To commemorate this anniversary, DC and Warner Brothers are mounting a year-long, global celebration honouring the Batman. We couldn’t be more delighted to be kicking off the anniversary’s celebration in Southeast Asia here at Resorts World Genting. This world-class activation being mounted by our friends here features a wide assortment of attractions, really, something for every age, gender and fan type.’

After the speech, the show began which combines visual scenes spanning the heroic tales and villainous encounters of the Batman Family set on massive 360° LED screens to show-stopping music and a transmogrifying showcase courtesy of 1,001 winch balls.

This is the first ever display of Batman’s long and storied history this way. After moving through scenes involving iconic characters like Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Joker, Catwoman, Penguin, Poison Ivy, Riddler, Two-Face, Harley Quinn and more, fans were treated to the winch balls display transforming into various three-dimensional iterations of the familiar Bat Emblem and an unforgettable appearance of Batman emerged from below the stage.


Three times a day on selected dates, a Batman Live show will take to the Times Square stage at SkyAvenue. Titled ‘Batman & Robin vs. The Joker’, the comedic song-and-dance theatrical production features Batman, Robin, Alfred and Commissioner James Gordon facing off against the maniacal Joker and his henchman in Arkham Asylum. Featuring family-friendly entertainment and interactive games with the audience, the show takes guests through the ups and downs of a typical Batman adventure, with peace descending upon Gotham City once again at the end of the show. After taking a bow, the stars of the show will then stage a Meet & Greet with fans, shaking hands and signing memorabilia for Batman fans young and old.

Guests can also join in on the fun by dressing up as their favourite Batman character in cosplay events scheduled for 28 to 30 June and 5 to 7 July 2019 at the Times Square stage.


Beyond the SkySkymphony show and the ‘Batman & Robin vs The Joker’ live show, there are plenty more Batman-themed experiences and touchpoints scattered across the levels of SkyAvenue. On Level 1 of SkyAtrium, four life-sized statues of Batman, a 1:1 replica of the Batmobile from the original Tim Burton-directed 1989 Batman film and a 1:1 replica of the Batmobile from the Zack Snyder/Joss Whedon-directed 2017 Justice League movie will be on exhibition from May 10 to July 10, 2019 – ready for fans and guests to snap photos with under the hashtag #LongLiveTheBat. There will also be a special trick-art wall at the SkyAtrium for visitors to take even more inventive social media-friendly photos.

Also at the SkyAtrium, fans will be treated to a pictorial history of Batman’s key milestones using panel displays. From the debut of Robin to Bane breaking Batman’s back, from Frank Miller’s Dark Knight Returns to the creation of the Court of Owls, the the display will chronicle the development and history of the entire Batman pantheon from 1939 to 2019. Younger fans can also experience driving a Batmobile, with a fully-controllable Junior Batmobile available to try out at SkyAtrium.

On Level 3 of SkyAvenue, the Dark Knight meets Japan in a special ‘chibi’ Batman display – depicting characters like Batman, Robin, Joker and Poison Ivy in a colourful, anime-like style that is both adorable and a departure from the typical dark and noir Batman atmosphere.

Batman also takes a very local turn, with the Batman Wayang Kulit display at SkyAvenue. Featuring famous scenes and recognisable characters in traditional Malay shadow puppet Wayang Kulit-style, this fan-created art shows the world of Batman is a very different light, merging 80 years of Batman history with Malaysian culture in a cool, unique way. In addition to the the exhibition, there will be 20 copies of comics on display, a collection by Mr Han that is from 1940, 1942 and 1948.

Apart from just viewing statues and snapping photos, guests will also be able to take home a little bit of the Batman Experience through the Batman-themed pop-up store that will be located at Skytropolis Funland Indoor Theme Park and the lobby of First World Plaza, featuring exclusive merchandise.

Fans can join in on social media using the hashtag #Batman80 and #LongLiveTheBat.
