Since the return of Bruce Wayne in The Batman, directed by Matt Reeves and starring Robert Pattinson, there has been a re-ignited interest in the character. Not that it's ever really gone away - Batman has been a comic book staple since he made his debut in Detective Comics in 1939. He's cropped up in TV serials, shows, giant blockbuster movies and animated classics. Directors including Tim Burton, Joel Schumacher, Christopher Nolan and Zack Snyder have taken a crack at the character, and fans have their favourite Bruce Wayne, Selina Kyle or Joker.
Such a long life and heavy pop culture exposure naturally mean there is lots of Bat-merchandise out there for fans both young and old. From games and toys to collectables and gadgets, everyone will find something they love.
