Danny Elfman, the composer of the score to Batman and Batman Returns, also celebrated while working on the score for Justice League. Henry Cavill, Affleck's Batman v Superman co-star, celebrated with a surprisingly bat-like cat picture.

The Dark Knight Rises star Joseph Gordon-Levitt also celebrated Batman Day, as did many members of the comic book industry. The internet at large celebrated as well with a hashtag that imagined what it would be like "If Batman were president."

This year's Batman Day was also meant to commemorate the 25th birthday of Harley Quinn, who debuted in Batman: The Animated Series in 1992, so many of the giveaways and deals revolved around her.
