Batman & Bill Reviews
- A fine, fascinating and often tragic look at the previously uncredited co-creator of Batmanby 6 May 2017on

Bill Finger has recently been given his due credit for his part in the creation of America's most popular superhero, Batman. It is incredibly unfortunate that this took as long as it did, many years after his death, but it has finally happened and this documentary makes that fact all the more satisfying.
This film largely focuses on the efforts of one man as he has spent much of his life trying to get Finger's name next to Bob Kane's on comics and movies and whatnot, which is where it belongs. What I think many will appreciate is that this film sticks to facts and doesn't work to demonize Kane any more than the facts of the matter do themselves. It will be awfully difficult for anyone to come away without a negative opinion of the man who's name has been associated with Batman since his inception, but this film and the man behind this crusade would much rather you came away with an appreciation for the man who died having never been given credit for the great amount of input he had in the creation of the Dark Knight and the world he lived in.
The film is often tragic, which is befitting given the man's life, but it gives the viewer a great amount of hope as well and a reason to cheer by its conclusion. It also gives you a great appreciation for the man who worked so hard to make sure Bill Finger got the credit he deserved and it will make you believe in the power of the unknown voice who can come from nowhere and make a difference.
Any and all fans of Batman should watch this film. As the movie shows, it's important to know who deserves credit for the things we love so we can better appreciate their contributions, and here we see that there are quite a few people worth praising.

If you are a Batman fan, this is the best 90 minutes you can spend learning about the history of the Caped Crusader. This is great story telling straight from the heart. The doc contains all kinds of trivia and history you never knew before. From the creation of the Batman character to the most recent movie, you'll find out things you never knew before.

what a stupid manipulative piece of garbage, from the start they try to impose information without evidence. when questions rise in your head about bill finger's family relationships, there is no answer, while wasting your time on relations you shouldn't give crap for, like between finger's son and his grand daughter. i really have no opinion on the issue of this propaganda, because it doesn't provide you with enough info or different point of views, it's like watching main stream media now, when they took off their hoods of false objectivity and don't care any more what you think of them
