The wait is nearly over for fans of the caped crusader as the final instalment of director Christopher Nolan’s Batman movie trilogy has its world premiere in New York tonight. Lead actor Christian Bale and his fellow cast mates including Anne Hathaway and Tom Hardy will be donning their glad rags and hitting the red carpet to woo movie goers and the media ahead of the film’s general release in cinemas across the US and the UK on Friday 20th July.
The plot of this final cinematic outing for Batman has been kept tightly under wraps but there has been some serious speculation about whether Bruce Wayne will end up paying the ultimate price for donning his Batman suit in order to keep the citizens of Gotham City safe. He certainly faces some powerful enemies this time around in the shape of the slinky but deadly Catwoman and the muscle-bound monster Bane. Will the Caped Crusader make it out alive after the final showdown? I guess we’ll find out on Friday…
If you’re heading along to the cinema to say bye bye to Batman, why not make a real night of it by donning your very own Batman Fancy Dress costume? We’re sure you could give Christian Bale a run for his money in this little beauty from our fabulous Superhero fancy dress costume range – particularly as it comes complete with it’s very own muscles just in case your own aren’t quite up to scratch!
