Things We Saw Today: A New Documentary About the Creation of Batman

Hulu has posted a trailer for their new documentary, Batman and Bill. It will tell the story of Bill Finger, the co-creator of Batman who received almost no recognition for his work during his lifetime. Bob Kane has long claimed sole credit for the character’s creation, and DC was incredibly resistant to paying any royalties or handing any credit to a second creative. However, after a settlement was reached in 2015, Finger was finally listed in the credits for Gotham and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Batman and Bill premieres on Hulu on May 6, 2017. (via io9)
