Batman now stands tall in Downtown Burbank, seven feet tall if you want to be precise. DC and the city of Burbank have joined forces, bringing a statue of The Dark Knight to Burbank, California.

Based on DC chief creative officer Jim Lee’s rendition of the character from the comic book storyline “Hush.  The seven-and-a-half foot tall bronze statue, which weighs 600 pounds, was created by digital sculptor Alejandro Pereira Ezcurra, and crafted by the city’s American Fine Arts Foundry and Fabrication. DC and Visit Burbank partnered to install the statue in its current home, the AMC Walkway of downtown Burbank. (By The AMC 16 Theater Complex)

And if you’re wondering why.  DC COMICS and WARNER BROS are located in Burbank.  I just hope that there’s more to come.  How about a Superman statue and a Wonder Woman statue, to complete the trilogy.
