Batman was a costumed comic-book hero on Earth.
In the 1970s at the Inferno Project, when Greg Sutton expressed surprise at the appearance of the Third Doctor's TARDIS console, the Doctor sarcastically asked Sutton whether he'd expected "some kind of space rocket with Batman at the controls" instead. (TV: Inferno)
Behind the scenes Edit
- David Tennant has expressed interest in playing the Riddler in a future Batman film.
- Tim Curry, who played several roles in Batman: The Animated Series, was considered for both the Eighth Doctor and the Master in the 1996 TV movie. He was also considered for the role of Sharaz Jek in the 1984 story The Caves of Androzani.
- Robert Englund, who played the Riddler in The Batman, was considered for the role of the Master in the 1996 TV movie.
- At a charity stage show in Hollywood, Matt Smith played a spoof Batman in Gotham Autopsy, a comedy sketch written the night before.
- A persistent rumour states that Jim Carrey, who played the Riddler in Batman Forever, turned down the role of the Eighth Doctor as he had never heard of Doctor Who and thought that it would cause outrage amongst fans if the role were played by a non-fan.
- Batman appears as one of the main characters in LEGO Dimensions.
