Batman to receive star on Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2020
The Walk of Fame Selection Committee recently announced more names that will be added to the Walk, including Julia Roberts, Spike Lee, Chris Hemsworth, Octavia Spencer, Laurence Fishburne, Mahershala Ali, Lina Wertmuller, Ruth E. Carter, Christina Applegate, Andy Cohen, Cindy Crawford, Terry Crews, Kathy Lee Gifford, Nigel Lythgoe, Milo Ventimiglia, Burt Ward, Wendy Williams, Dr. Phil, Harry Friedman, Andy Kaufman, Dave Chappell, Billy Porter, Susan Stamburg, Elvis Costello, 50 Cent, Alicia Keys, Billy Idol, Bobby Rydell, Alejandro Sanz, Tanya Tucker, Andy Madadian, Muddy Waters, Sir Lucian Grainge, Mo Ostin and Batman. These icons were selected from a list of hundreds from all over the industry and their names will sit atop their very own bronze stars in 2020.
Batman joins a short list of 21 fictional characters to get a star on the Walk of Fame. He will join the likes of Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Bugs Bunny, Kermit the Frog, Snoopy, Snow White, The Munchkins, The Muppets, The Simpsons, Tinkerbell, Shrek, Big Bird, Rugrats, Winnie The Pooh, Woody Woodpecker, Donald Duck, Strongheart, Lassie, Rin Tin Tin and Godzilla. It's fitting, as this year DC and Batman fans are celebrating the Dark Knight's 80th anniversary. He was created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger and introduced in 1939's Detective Comics #27.
Batman will be the first comic book character to receive a star on the walk.
Congratulations to the Caped Crusader. Here's to another 80. This is a win for the entire Batfamily and his villainous rogue's gallery.
