Batman Creator Bob Kane Receiving a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

Batman is easily one of the most famous fictional characters of the twentieth century and now over 75 years after Bob Kane first created the character, the late comic book writer is getting his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce revealed this morning that Kane will receive a star in the Motion Pictures category for his creation of Batman, which makes sense considering how significant a cinematic presence the character has been.

The ceremony takes place on Ocboter 21, 2015 and will be attended by the likes of Zack Snyder, director of the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Jim Lee, with both serving as guest speakers.

Interestingly, Batman (and by extension, Kane) will also receive another accolade that day. Guinness World Records will award the character with the title for “Most Film Adaptations of a Comic Book Character.” Looks like Snyder and DC better keep churning out Batman films a decent rate because with the way Marvel’s going, it probably won’t be long until one of their characters can lay claim to that title.
