The Batman: The Caped Crusader’s return for this new decade


Another decade, another Batman movie to signal fans of the billionaire superhero back to cinemas for another take on DC Comics' iconic character. Robert Pattison (Twilight, Tenet) begins his journey as the new Batman / Bruce Wayne from 4th March at cinemas nationwide.

Within the Egyptian themed Sunway Pyramid floors of Sunway’s signature mall, comes one of many exhibits that feature contents and snippets of The Batman movie located on Ground Floor adjacent to the main "pyramid" entrance. Mall shoppers can visit The Batman Experience before docking themselves in TGV Cinemas upstairs to catch the 3-hour long movie.

It’s not a Batman exhibit without an archive of Batmans of the past, brought to you by the Batman Fans Malaysia (BFM) people, and their collections of figures and associated CDs of each Batman’s respective movies.

But if a history lesson of the past is not what you’re here for, then perhaps the exhibit’s attractions of the present day Batman will interest you. This includes a wayang kulit / shadow puppet edition of Pattinson's Batman by the artists at Fusion Wayang Kulit.

But most notably of all, is the activity that awaits visitors with time to spare, as the exhibit itself welcomes attendees to solve the mysterious puzzles within itself.

All this free entry activity, at no extra cost with no strings attached. The only rule is to solve the riddle, and be paid with a free beverage at the counter.

It’s like being the Batman detective without needing a prerequisite of being a billionaire...

Starts with a door of green text, which hides a question within. What does this mysterious riddle unveil? That is for you, the person reading this, to uncover the truth from.

Mystery solving aside, for folks interested to suit up like the Batman, a contest of cosplay awaits those who dare enter combat via costume.

The DC Superhero Cosplay Competition to be held at Sunway Pyramid this coming March 13th welcomes anyone’s inner DC superhero cosplay to fly free for the contest, with Online Registration open until 9 March for contestants.

Upto RM10,000 worth of prizes to be won including Sunway Pals points (cash value for purchases at Sunway Malls) & official Batman merchandise. Click here for the Registration Form.

If cosplay isn’t your cup of coffee, there is still the Sony Centre section of the exhibit, where Playstation Batman videogame allow you to virtually don the cowl of the Dark Knight investigating Arkham Asylum.

Alongside are escape-room like activities and retail section selling DC themed merchandise to take home as a souvenir. 

While The Batman screens in cinemas, why not visit Sunway Pyramid for the occasion as well? It’s open until 20 March, 2022.

The Batman movie of the 2022 features the Caped Crusader’s venture into Gotham City’s underworld in pursuit of a sadistic killer with their cryptic clues. As the trail to the perpetrator becomes clearer, he must form new partnerships to unmask the culprit, and bring justice to the city’s long running abuses of power.

The Batman stars Robert Pattinson at Batman / Bruce Wayne, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Jeffrey Wright as GCPD's James Gordon, Colin Farrell as Penguin, and Andy Serkis as Alfred.
