Joker is never so dangerous as when he has an idea, from The Killing Joke to The Dark Knight to Don’t Fear the Joker, the absolute worst Joker to tangle with is a Joker who has something to prove. That was the case when he grabbed some students in Don’t Fear to prove, among other things, “Fear isn’t funny but laughter is evolved.” Naturally, Batman would be coming to crash his lecture, and naturally Joker had a little surprise waiting.

2014 will mark the world premiere of “Fathers of the Dark Knight” an ambitious theatrical production about both the fictional heroes and villains of Gotham and the real-life men who created them. The play – which will fittingly open in New York City, the inspiration for Gotham – seeks to correct the failure of history to recognize the contributions two men, writer Bill Finger and artist Jerry Robinson, made to the world of Bob Kane’s Batman. The audience will get to watch the creative process of Kane, Finger and Robinson brought to life in two different ways: On one side of the stage, we see the three men in Kane’s apartment, gradually bringing Gotham and its colorful cast of characters into being. On the other side, those very characters will fight the never-ending battle of good versus evil, as Batman takes on villains such as Joker, Riddler and Catwoman with the help of heroes like Batgirl and Robin.
Fathers of the Dark Knight” is a not-for-profit stage production documented on their website, including cast appearances at New York Comic Con.
