Here’s What It’s Like To Be Batman, According To Actors Who’ve Played Batman

Ever wonder what it’s like to be a superhero? Mark Edlitz certainly has. Edlitz’s new book, How To Be A Superhero, is full of original and repurposed interviews with dozens of actors who have played superheroes or villains. Though they only donned the cape or suit for just a short moment in time, these actors have a lot to say about what it feels like to possess superhuman abilities.

“My goal was to speak to the actors when they were not promoting a specific project so that they would be more open to actually revealing something about their experience,” Edlitz told The Huffington Post in a recent interview. His book, which has a foreword by Pulitzer Prize winner David Mamet, can be pre-ordered from BearManor Media.

Here are some of the things Edlitz learned from actors who have portrayed the Caped Crusader, both by conducting original interviews and researching those from the past.

panel from crazy american anti-communist christian propaganda comic. 

From ‘Marx, Lenin, Mao and Christ’, a title which accidentally hints to the anti-capitalist nature of Jesus Christ, the original revolutionary (as I’ve heard that evangelical monks used to say in the 60s). The comic was published in 1977, a year after Mao died, by Open Doors.
