Last year’s Comic-Con saw the Batman: Arkham Knight Cape & Cowl Exhibit revealed for Batman’s 75th anniversary.
Now the Batman Cape & Cowl exhibit comes to the UK as WB Games UK has teamed up with twenty of the most exciting contemporary artists and media celebrities to celebrate the launch of Batman: Arkham Knight with a new exhibition reimagining the Caped Crusader’s iconic Cape and Cowl headpiece.
Using life-sized replicas of Batman’s famous costume as a blank canvas, each artist and celebrity will produce their own unique interpretation of the Dark Knight’s attire. The exhibit features celebrities from the worlds of TV, film, music and fashion, such as Jonathan Ross, Jodie Kidd and Noel Clarke and high profile artists such as Nancy Fouts, Lauren Baker, Hayden Kays, Inkie, Pam Glew, INSA, The Connor Brothers, Zeus, Matt Small, Jon Burgerman, Case, CRASH, Lucas Price, Kid Acne, Logan Hicks and Pure Evil.
The Batman: Arkham Knight Cape & Cowl Exhibit will run through launch week in an immersive Gotham City-inspired location in Central London.
Fans will be able to catch an early sneak peek of a few of the exhibits on the WB Games stand at the MCM London Comic-Con at ExCeL from May 22nd-24th, as well as see the life-size Batman: Arkham Knight Batmobile, built by West Coast Customs.
Batman: Arkham Knight is based on DC Comics’ core Batman license and will be available in June exclusively for the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Windows PC.
In the explosive finale to the Arkham series, Batman faces the ultimate threat against the city he is sworn to protect. The Scarecrow returns to unite an impressive roster of super villains, including Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn, to destroy The Dark Knight forever. Batman: Arkham Knight introduces Rocksteady’s uniquely designed version of the Batmobile, which is drivable for the first time in the franchise. The addition of this legendary vehicle, combined with the acclaimed gameplay of the Batman Arkham series, offers gamers the ultimate and complete Batman experience as they tear through the streets and soar across the skyline of the entirety of Gotham City.
