DC Comics is holding a day-long celebration for the Caped Crusader on September 19. As a part of Batman Day, fans all over the world will be able to join in by doing a multitude of activities; best of all is helping the Dark Knight solve crime. From driving around with Batman as your co-pilot with Waze, free comic books featuring the World’s Greatest Detective, Spotify playlists, and digital games, fans can explore the world through Batman’s eyes.
The festivities started August 31, with the Waze app. Through October 31, anyone can ride shotgun with The Batman himself as he guides drivers around town. Voice actor Kevin Conroy (Batman: The Animated Series) is lending his voice to the iconic character once again. While fans of the Riddler can have the conniving voice of Wally Wingert lead them with clues.
A full list of activities is as follows:
- Caped Crusader Training: Are you ready to team up with Batman? In the week leading up to Batman Day, fans will have a chance to immerse themselves in all things Batman.
