Hulu has released the trailer for its upcoming documentary Batman and Bill.
The documentary shines the light on Batman’s forgotten creator Bill Finger, unmasking the reasons why he was omitted from the Batman history. Finger, who was responsible for creating some of the most iconic pieces of The Batman Universe, including, The Joker, The Penguin, The Riddler, Cat Woman, Gotham City and Robin, remained until recently, relatively unheard of.
Since the beginning, Bob Kane was thought of as the sole force behind the Batman comics and became a legend in the minds of many fans of DC.
Finger, who passed away in 1974 without ever being credited for his contribution, was finally acknowledged by Kane in his 1989 autobiography Batman and Me. In it, Kane described Finger as “a contributing force” in the creating of the comics, noting “I must admit that Bill never received the fame and recognition he deserved.”
Batman and Bill debuts on Hulu on May 6, check out the trailer below:
