Since March 31, 2017, DC Comics Superheroes are invited to the Art Ludique museum. Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Justice League of America, Green Arrow, The Flash: the question is not if you like DC Comics universe but which character you like most. Justice League of America, Batman and Robin, The Flash, Suicide Squad, Watchmen or even Aquaman are everywhere: films, comics, TV series and animated movies, DC Comics Superheroes have influenced the world so much they gather together generations!
For over 80 years, these heroes have been present everywhere in movies, comics and on the small screen and even on children TV channels and gathered every generation because of their major influence on the world. By the way, we are looking forward to seeing the Justice League movie and reading the new Batman comics by Enrico Marini.
For the first time in the world, this exhibition returns to almost a century of artistic dynamics imagined in the 1930s by two Cleveland teenage boys and creators of Superman – a groundbreaking character – Joe Schuster and Jerry Siegel.
Because Superman was the first in a family of 150 Superheroes he takes pride of place in the exhibition featuring many plates, old animated movie clips, costumes from different periods as well as artworks from movies produced on the hero’s life!
For this exhibition on DC Comics heroes, over 250 original and historic plates, more than 300 cinema research drafts and several iconic film costumes and props have been lent for the Superheroes fans’ greatest pleasure.
This exhibition, focused on Superman and Batman, will unveil DC legend’s trade secrets, a whole range of symbols (costumes, looks, sets, symbols and emblems) which are the reason for all these Superheroes’ fame. It will return on the origin of the genre and a century of artistic dynamic from 1938 to nowadays.
Authentic costumes created for great DC movies are waiting for you. For instance, the legendary costume worn by Christopher Reeve in Superman or Lynda Carter’s famous Wonder Woman costume worn in 1970 are displayed. Go and discover authentic costumes and props created for Zack Snyder’s, Tim Burton’s, Joel Schumacher’s and Christopher Nolan’s movies as well as those used for the highly-anticipated movie Wonder Woman out in June 2017.
A classic exhibition doing every fans good whilst waiting for the next DC movies, such as Wonder Woman out in June 2017, Justice League Part One out in November 2017, The Flash out in March 2018, Aquaman out in July 2018, Shazam out in April 2019, Cyborg out in April 2020 and Green Lantern Corps out in July 2020!
