Batman Co-Creator Bill Finger to get New York Street Named After Him

Shares

For many years Bob Kane received the sole credit for creating Batman, that is until 2016 when Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Gotham became the first film and television series to acknowledge that Finger having a hand in creating Bruce Wayne and Batman as we know him and since than all comics featuring Batman, now have the same credit:  Batman Created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger.

This accomplishment happened thanks to Marc Tyler Nobleman, who documented his journey to get Bill Finger the credit he deserved in the Hulu documentary Batman & Bill. This documentary gave way to more Bill Finger tributes, including a new street sign “Bill Finger Way” that is going to be unveiled in the Bronx on East 192 Street and the Grand Concourse. This place is significant since Bill Finger met with Bob Kane at Poe Park, where the sign will be to discuss Batman’s creation.

Bill Finger’s granddaughter Athena, Nobleman and the city councilmen will speak at the event.

This news comes from Bill Finger’s biographer Mike Tyler Nobleman

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me
