Did you know Batman once fought Dracula?
He does so in the 2005 animated film Batman vs. Dracula. It may be worth checking out for some hardcore fans.
But did you know that he fought Dracula in the 60s? Well he did, but all the evidence that remains of this potentially awesome altercation no longer exists.
A reddit post lead me to look over a list of lost films. Most of the films were from the 20s and 30s early on, but there were a few lost films in the 60s and 70s.
One of them is a Filipino film titled “Batman Fights Dracula.” This title stood out to me for obvious reasons. After some research there is almost literally no word about this film. Examiner had a short, but non-investigative article on it back in 2013 that offers some more insight, but still no full picture on what the film was or where it could be.
I wrote this as a Side Note instead of an Essay because I have literally no more information to give you about this film, other than the fact that it is a missing “Batman” film. I’m also woefully surprised that the fanboy culture on the internet hasn’t done an intense investigation on this. We got filmmakers to dig up the lost “ET” Atari cartridges didn’t we?
This should be a bigger story. Bottom line.
