The Dark Knight is back in town again. Yes, you read right – Batman is back in Hong Kong. However, this time he won’t jump from Hong Kong’s iconic IFC tower, but can be spotted in Causeway Bay where Hong Kong’s prime shopping mall Times Square will host the “Batman 75th Anniversary Exhibition”.
In case you love Batman and/or are a movie lover, you should take some time to head to this unique shopping mall exhibition. Until July 20th, 2014 you are able to see some of Batman’s favorite vehicles including the Batpod and the Tumbler featured in the latest Dark Knight movie series as well as the Batmobile from the Batman movie released in 1989.
The Times Square shopping mall as well as the outside piazza has been transformed into small exhibition venue of movie related items from past decades. From very far distance, you already can spot Batman standing on the clock tower and keeping an eye on the safety of this city.
The coolest part of this exhibition are the three life-sized replicas of Bat-vehicles.
The first one is the model from 1989 movie. I believe every Batman fan as well as Nintendo game player won’t forget this classic batman car design.
Hong Kong was very excited about the “Batman – The Dark Knight (2008)” movie because this was the first super famous Hollywood movie ever shooting in Hong Kong : Bruce Wayne also visited the iconic Mid-Level escalator and the Batman jumped from the Hong Kong landmark “IFC Tower II”.
Aside from the Bat-vehicles, there is wall covered with comic covers showcasing and highlighting how Batman changed over the past years.
Just next to it is small display case showcasing various Batman toys, figures, cars and other collectable items.
Make sure to check-out the diorama featuring Batman and the Joker. The exhibition also recreated the famous scene from “Batman – The Dark Knight” when Batman encountered Joker in the interrogation room asking the locations of Harvey Dent and Rachel Dawes.
There are also Batman and Robin (from the 1950s/1960s) figures inside the Times Square shopping mall climbing up the wall of the atrium.
