  • Question: What was the inspiration that 'Batman’s' creator Bob Kane used for his shadowy night crime fighter? – now while you are thinking…
 
  • Answer: Bob Kane, the originator of 'Batman', freely suggested that his inspiration for his shadowy night creature character came from Mary Roberts Rinehart's stage play The Bat (1926), plus the 'silent' film of the same title, and then its 'talkie' re-make, The Bat Whispers (1930).
