My trip to Warner Bros. studios today took me to the Batman Exhibit! It’s a celebration of 75 years of Batman that shows the vehicles in this room. Here we have: all the bat cowls from every batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises (I think) Suit, Costumes from The Dark Knight, the infamous “BatNipples costume, the Bane costume, Riddler’s costume, Halle Berry’s (edit: Michelle Pheiffer’s) Catwoman, scarecrow from Batman Begins, Jack Nicholson’s Joker, and the Penguin

Here we have: the statue from the end of The Dark Knight Rises, bat-cycles, both tumblers from The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, the original Batmobile, a bat-plane and lastly the Batsignal from TDK trilogy.

We all known Jonathan Crane was born in Georgia, but do you know where in
Georgia? Most people skip over the fact that it was mentioned in the comic.
The town’s name was Arlen…this small community existed within the borders of
county. According to Great Grandmother Keeny, the town and the chapel that graced Keeny’s land was the pride of Georgia in the 1900s. This was before the great stock market crash of 1929 of course, and several more years before Jonathan’s birth. By the time the future-to-be Scarecrow graced the earth, the town’s population had dwindled to almost nothing. The Keeny Manor was left in shambles and the community had little less than a hundred inhabitants. This is my estimation of course, seeing as Arlen still has a school at this time
Here are two maps to show the real world difference. On the left, is a current state map of all
Georgia counties, on the right is railway map from 1899. I have circled both Bulloch county and Arlen for your convenience. (Click here for a full view of each map: Right, Left)
Today, Arlen does not exist on the map. In reality we can assume this
is because the town/community of Arlen simply could not sustain itself. In the Batman Universe however, I like to think it was for more…terrifying
reasons. Obviously the town was known was it’s one and only chapel, filled with exotic birds and beautiful sermons that graced the townspeople’s ears every sunday. Once that ended thanks to the stock market crash, rumors spread and families left. They say it was God’s will, everyone has to face their childhood fears eventually.
The other town mentioned in Year One (written on a letter to Karen Keeny) is the community of Latham.
This is where Jonathan’s mother resides after running away from the family and shacking up with Charlie. Facing a similar fate to Arlen, Latham does not exist on any currant maps, but can be found through Georgia’s Online Almanac under Harlason county.
