Hulu Documentary examines the story of the uncredited Batman collaborator
Everyone has heard of Bob Kane. He is primarily associated with the creation of the Dark Knight, Batman. But he was not alone. Content streaming service Hulu shines the Bat Signal on co-creator Bill Finger with the release of next month’s Batman and Bill, a documentary examining Finger’s contributions to crucial elements to the Batman mythos.
Only Kane would receive acknowledgment for the creation of Batman for many years. But without Bill Finger, there would be no Robin, Commissioner Gordon, Batcave or the Joker.
Everyone thinks that Bob Kane created Batman, but that’s not the whole truth. One author makes it his crusade to seek justice for Bill Finger, a struggling writer who was the key figure in creating 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.
Batman and Bill premieres May 6 on Hulu.
