WORLD'S SECOND BATMAN MOVIE
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the world's second Batman movie?

There have been so many Batman movies and so many actors have played the Caped Crusader that we wanted to know a little bit of the history that has gone into bringing this superhero to the big screen. What is considered to be the first and second Batman could be a topic of debate as it depends on what your idea of a movie is.

The story of Batman has been enjoyed by the young and old for several decades and if you want to know what the first few Batman movies were, you would need to go back to a time when serial movies were being played in movie theatres. Serial movies are movies that are filmed and shown in chapters. Usually a theatre would play one chapter for a whole week and this chapter would have a cliffhanger at the end that would keep the patrons coming back the next week to see the next chapter. The next week the customers would come back to see the next chapter and of course, pay to do so.

The first Batman serial movie was released in 1943 and six years later in 1949, the second serial movie, Batman and Robin, was released. In this movie, Batman and Robin are working to defeat the Wizard, whose face remains covered and whose true identity is unknown to the audience until the very end of the film. Robert Lowery starred as Batman with Johnny Duncan playing the part of Robin. The movie had 15 chapters in all, for a complete running time of 263 minutes and it was released in the United States on May 26, 1949.
