DC Comics releasing 1.5M bats in Austin, Texas for Batman's 80th anniversary


AUSTIN, Texas (CIRCA via KEYE) — Batman's 80th anniversary is being celebrated in Austin, Texas at the Congress Avenue bridge on Friday evening.

DC Comics selected South by Southwest to celebrate the cape crusader's eight decades, the centerpiece being what the company calls "an incredible moment when more than 1.5 million bats fly into the night over Austin’s famous Congress Bridge."

What that means in relation to the bridge's well-known bat population is unclear.

The celebration of all things Batman at SXSW will also include"multiple fan experiences, photo opportunities, limited-edition merchandise and Instagrammable mural by a local artist."
