Batman Live has arrived, at least as far as the press is concerned, and the adage of “if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em” seems to be in full swing between to the two rival comic publishers.  Except Batman Live isn’t a musical…

Faithfully adapted from the DC Comics characters and stories, BATMAN LIVE focuses on Robin’s quest for justice, which leads him to follow in the footsteps of his hero, the mysterious vigilante known as the Batman – much to the dismay of his protective guardian, millionaire Bruce Wayne – who secretly happens to be Batman.

This dynamic triangle resolves itself in a non-stop thrill-ride across Gotham City that transforms Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson into the legendary crime-fighters Batman and Robin and transports the audience from the Big Top of Haly’s Circus to the lower depths of Arkham Asylum – from the glittering peaks of the Penguin’s Iceberg Lounge to the subterranean wonders that await inside the Batcave, which features a revolutionary, all-new Batmobile designed exclusively for BATMAN LIVE.

According to various websites, both Two-Face and The Ventriloquist are scheduled to appear in the stage show.

Take the jump for video from the press event.

    What’s with the Batsuit? It kinda looks like the one from the Clooney movie when he fought Mr. Freeze.
