Batman Live Stage Show Unveils Cast Photos

Cast photos for Batman Live, a touring stage show featuring the caped crusader and his vast array of nemeses have hit.

It was announced last Fall that Batman would be following the cursed, injury-laden path of Spider-Man's Broadway career by putting on live shows. However, unlike the luck-deprived Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, this show will have the additional burden of a touring across the UK throughout this summer and then across North America in Summer 2012. (What could possibly go wrong?)

Based off the descriptions, it seems to have plans that are at least as ambitious as the aforementioned Wall-Crawler's Tony-repellent. However, based on the photos we're seeing, it's content of camp (while seemingly present,) is nowhere near that level.

Check out the rest of the pics just below.

According to the description on the official site:

Based on an original story being created exclusively for the show, Batman Live is a theatrical extravaganza of thrilling stunts, acrobatic acts and illusions. Never before has Gotham City, Wayne Manor, the Batcave and Arkham Asylum been brought to life on stage in a more visually exciting way. Join Batman and Robin as they battle their nemesis The Joker and other super-villains such as The Riddler, Catwoman, The Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn, set on destroying Gotham City.

Totally authentic, bold and awe-inspiring, Batman Live will be a completely new way to experience the world of Batman. This is one adventure you do not want to miss!

Well, us folks in the States will have to be patient while the UK plays guinea pig to this production. At this point, it almost seems moot to provide critique, since, if anything, the costumes look much better than their counterparts in "certain Batman movies" from the past. (The most notorious of which rhymes with "Hatman and Jobbin.")

The show will debut in Manchester's Manchester Evening News Arena on July 19.

What about you? Would you be up for seeing this show if it came to your neck of the woods?
