New Warner Bros. Mural Features Many Superheroes!

A few days ago, I informed you of the new mural that Warner Bros. had erected on their Burbank lot. The public unveiling was Tuesday night and now a picture of the mural has been released for you to see!

As you can see, this new mural really showcases DC superheroes. Front and centre is Batman and his two buddies, Aquaman and Blue Beetle from Batman: The Brave and the Bold, to the left are Cyborg, Robin and Starfire from Teen Titans, and to the right are three character from the line of DC Universe Animated Original Movies: Green Lantern from Green Lantern: First Flight, Superman from Superman: Doomsday and Wonder Woman from Wonder Woman.

To add to the cool factor, all these heroes are bursting out of the Hall of Justice as it appears in Hanna-Barbera's Super Friends!

If you ever drive by the mural at night you will be in for a special treat! A row of Batman's rogues gallery appear at night to haunt the heroes and oncoming traffic! You can see them in the picture above if you look carefully. The villains include Harley Quinn, the Joker, Two-Face, Catwoman, Clayface and Mr. Freeze and are all based on the designs from Batman: the Animated Series and The New Batman Adventures.

Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny, Sylvester, Tweety and Scooby-Doo are also in the mural so that people don't forget that Warner Bros. also owns the Looney Tunes and Hanna-Barbera characters.

The evening was a huge hit, packed with many guest stars and people dressed up in costumes. Bruce Timm, James Tucker, Glen Murakami and Diedrich Bader were there as well as Julie Newmar (60s Catwoman) and the Tim Burton Batmobile!

The only downside to the event was that it started to rain, thus canceling the screening of Batman: The Brave and the Bold. Oh well, at least everyone had a blast!

Nice write-up of the event. Wonder why Warner Bros. decided to do this now besides flexing their ownership muscles to say "look what we own."
