Celebrate All Things Batman This Saturday on Batman Day

The Caped Crusader will have his moment in the spotlight with the celebration of Batman Day happening this Saturday on September 18.

Along with the 1-day celebration of everything Batman, DC and Warner Bros. is also celebrating Gotham City’s Dark Knight for the whole month with a massive collection of partnerships, special releases and initiatives in honor of the Dark Knight globally.

 

Meanwhile, here in the Philippines, we can immerse ourselves in all things Batman with an exciting line-up of activities, special programming, themed merchandise, cutting-edge bat tech and contest giveaways. All of which will be culminating on Batman Day on September 18.

Swoop in for some amazing giveaways

Simply post your best shot with the Bat-Mobile AR filter, tag @HBOASIA on Instagram or @DCASIAOFFICIAL on Facebook and use the hashtags #HBOASIA, #DCASIAOFFICIAL and #BATMANMONTH to enter the contest which will run September 10-24. With a virtual Bat-mobile at your beck and call, Batman month is shaping to be a wild ride.

Suit up with the first-ever Batman Bat-Tech AR app!

The AR app DC: Batman Bat-Tech Edition launched in August to entertain young ones with immersive experiences. On Batman Day, a new mission will drop, continuing the Bat-Tech app storyline. Players will be able to infiltrate Mr. Freeze’s lair and discover the bank heist was a diabolical diversion just as the Bat-Tech App was being hacked by The Riddler. Can The Riddler actually use Batman’s technology against him to find the Batcave? Batman needs you and the entire Knightwatch team to help stop these Super-Villains.

The app is available on both the Play Store and on the App Store.
