"After what has been an uncertain and unpredictable year, we are absolutely thrilled with the results of our seventh annual Live Auction,” Prop Store CEO, Stephen Lane, said about the auction. “It is clear that the love for the classic films has not diminished and we saw some spectacular results across both days. We are looking forward to seeing what our next event in Los Angeles next Spring will bring."
Speaking of Jack Nicholson's Joker, Michael Keaton recently told Seth Meyers about some history from the 1989 Batman. "The only thing that happened when I did the first Batman was, I was very nervous and self-conscious about being with Jack, because he’s so strong on film, you know, and it ended up just being great,” Keaton shared. "We became pals and everything."
Keaton was asked if he could confirm that he will play Batman in the upcoming The Flash movie. Keaton said he couldn't say, but did admit there have been talks. The actor also joked that "all 127" previous "Batmen" will appear in the movie then declared himself to be the best Batman.
