Batman Costume Goes Dark

Batman has always been a classic subject of Halloween excitement, but in light of this year's blockbuster performance directed by Christopher Nolan, the Batman costume is destined to be one of the top choices this Halloween.

Unless you have had your head under a rock for the past few months, you know that The Dark Knight's Joker has taken the film-making industry by storm, and has thrust Batman into the spotlight once again as America's favorite superhero. In light of these developments, it is no wonder every little boy and even a number of little girls will want the new Batman costume this Halloween.

The reason Batman is enjoying the spotlight is due to Christopher Nolan's recent masterpiece blockbuster, "The Dark Knight". The Dark Knight pit Batman against his most formidable opponent onscreen yet, the Joker. Although Batman is the main focus here, the Joker played by Heath Ledger in this year's summer blockbuster deserves his due.

The Joker was finally portrayed as the awesome, dark, cunning criminal of old. Heath Ledger played a Joker forgotten since his comic book days. That is an insidious, chaotic yet calculating psychopath who is one of Batman's most famous and notoriously formidable enemies.

For those of you unfamiliar with Batman's origins, and the Joker's long developing grudge against him, Batman has been a DC Comics character since the late 1930's. Ever since seeing his parents murdered as a young boy, he has been devoted to fighting crime in Gotham City, a dark rendition of what New York could look like if it was ever to fall to a significant criminal element.

Batman, unlike most superheroes does not rely on super powers to fight the bad guys. All Batman needs are his wits, and almost perfectly conditioned and disciplined body. These, paired with his detective skills and unsurpassed technology that his vast fortune allow him to afford, make him the most significant crime fighter the comic book world has ever seen.

The Batman franchise has scarcely enjoyed as much positive press since Batman's comic book birth in the late thirties. Although Batman has commanded a significant amount of pop culture review and attention over his decades of existence, this summer marked a milestone in the life of Batman.

It is no wonder the Batman costume may be the best selling costume this Halloween. Although the Joker played a significant role in Batman's fame this summer, all the children and parents who want their kids to be superheroes as opposed to super villains are guaranteed to choose a Batman Halloween costume this year.

But, no matter which one you or your child choose, superhero or super villain, you'll need to do it quickly if you don't want to miss out. The Batman costume and the Joker costume are both selling fast.
