Admission: $5/ free for MoCCA Members
Michael Uslan has helped to bring some of the most memorable films to the big screen. He is the executive producer of films such as Batman, Batman Returns, Batman Forever, Batman & Robin, Constantine, The Spirit, Batman Begins, and the second highest grossing film of all time, The Dark Knight.
His most recent project is the newly released memoir The Boy Who Loved Batman, the true story of how a middle class boy from New Jersey grew up to be an executive producer of one of the most successful film franchises of all time.
Michael Uslan’s comic writing credits include the critically-acclaimed revival of The Shadow for DC Comics, Archie Comics, Terry and the Pirates, Stan Lee’s Just Imagine Batman, Batman: Detective #27 graphic novel, the comics history America At War – A History of War Comics, Mysteries in Space – A History of Science Fiction Comics, The Pow! Zap! Wham! Comic Book Trivia Quiz Book, and many others. He is a recipient of an Emmy Award as Executive Producer of the popular children’s series Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego?, an Annie Award for the animated movie Batman Beyond: Return of The Joker, and a Peoples Choice Award for the movie Batman.
In 2008 the film The Dark Knight became one of the highest grossing films of all time, and cemented the Batman film series as one of the most successful film franchises ever. This achievement was no surprise to Michael Uslan, the man who had dreamed of making a dark, serious Batman film since he was a child, and had (with his partner Benjamin Melniker) acquired the rights to the films in 1979. For the majority of his life, he believed in the power and universality of the Batman story, and was determined to bring a sophisticated take to theaters, even when the industry believed it was a property best left for children. In his personal memoir, The Boy Who Loved Batman, Uslan shares his story— starting with his humble beginnings as a comics-obsessed New Jersey boy (who entered college with 30,000 comics in his collection), to his early renown as the creator of the first college course on comics. Uslan recounts how his summer employment at DC Comics lead to him writing for The Shadow and, in a fulfillment of his dream, Batman. He reveals the behind-the-scenes drama behind securing the right to produce Batman films, and reinvigorated the Dark Knight as the powerful, serious hero that audiences love. Along the way readers will meet the greats of the comic book world such as Bob Kane, Bill Finger, and Stan Lee; learn the back-story on the surprising but inspired casting of Michael Keaton as Batman and Jack Nicholson as the Joker; and gain insight into the turbulent politics and economy of Hollywood.

More about The Boy Who Loved Batman:
Is any superhero cooler than Batman? He’s a crime-fighting vigilante with a tragic past, a lawless attitude, and a seemingly endless supply of high-tech gadgetry. In this fully illustrated memoir, author Michael Uslan recalls his journey from early childhood fandom through to the decades he spent on a caped crusade of his own: to bring Batman to the silver screen as the dark, serious character he was at heart. Uslan’s story traces his path from the wilds of New Jersey to the limelight of Hollywood, following his work as Executive Producer on every Batman film from Tim Burton’s 1989 re-envisioning to 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises. Through it all, he helped to create one of the most successful pop culture franchises of all time.
