Welcome to ScreenCrush’s now-sort-of-new feature, the ScreenCrush ScreenCrunch Cereal Of The Week. (Or SCSCCOTW, which, as always, is easier to pronounce.)
Remember that scene in ‘Batman Returns’ when The Penguin (Danny DeVito) is eating fish, resulting in a fish blood and innards smeared across his face? Was your first thought after watching this scene, “I’m hungry”? Or, more specifically, “I wish I could eat a cereal that is somehow related to this scene.” If so -- and it happened to be 1992 – you were in luck because ‘Batman Returns’ cereal exists.

This isn't entirely surprising given that early insight into FOX's 'Gotham' suggested the Batman prequel drama would also feature a teenage Catwoman and a young Riddler, and now its question-marked baddie has a name. 'Oliver Kitteridge' star Cory Michael Smith will appear in the 'Gotham' pilot as forensic scientist Edward Nygma, but how long will we have to wait before he riddles us this and that?

'Arrow' fans were thrown a 'Dark Knight' curve ball when famed Batman villain Harley Quinn made a brief appearance (well, at least her voice did) in the "Suicide Squad" episode, which saw folks like Bronze Tiger and Deadshot teaming up at the government's behest. However, thanks to Mr. Deadshot himself, we have our first real look at Harley Quinn, as portrayed by actress Cassidy Alexa -- and we're not just talking about a brief glimpse at her back and nails, either.

75 years ago today, Batman made his first appearance in Detective Comics #27 and popular culture was never the same. Few characters carry the cultural weight of Gotham City's masked protector and after three quarters of a century, he's still as popular as ever. Trends rise and trends die. Stories become popular and stories vanish over the years. But Batman? Batman is immortal. Happy birthday, Batman.

Few characters have the pop culture clout of Batman, who has spent the better part of a century dominating comic books, the better part of a generation dominating movies, and the better part of a decade dominating video games. To geeks and businessmen alike, he's kind of a big, huge, massive deal. Now, Warner Bros. and DC Comics plan to celebrate the 75th anniversary of their biggest cash cow with a year-long celebration, announcing all kinds of special events and releases to commemorate the creation of Bruce Wayne and his alter ego.
