San Diego Comic-Con 2014: The Booths/Exhibits

2014 marks the 75th anniversary of Batman, so the main draw on the convention floor for me was WB/DC’s display of artifacts from the Batman film anthology, including all those Bat-cowls, Batarangs, the Joker thugs’ masks, the memorial statue from The Dark Knight Rises and even Martha Wayne’s necklace. Of course, there was an abundance of cool displays in addition to Caped Crusader-related paraphernalia – take a look!

Legendary is pretty happy about Godzilla’s box office success.

Keeping the peace.
