Orson Welles Directing Batman?

Can you even imagine?

I guess this was a real project back in 1946 that didn’t quite take off.

However, things could have been very different if circumstances had been a little more in our favour shortly after the war. The embryonic superhero concept wasn’t even ten years old when perhaps the most illustrious director of his day, Orson Welles, seriously considered doing a Batman picture and even got as far as production designs, an early draft of a script and some casting photographs featuring various friends and colleagues in prototypes of what would eventually become the finished costumes.

Unbelievable! That would have been simply magnificent!
