Houston Batman movie could offer intrigue

August 14

There’s nothing currently in movie production, but a daring screenwriter should pen “Houston Batman” … a story that has nothing to do with the Christian Bale caped crusader.

Nick Redfern on retold the tale of “The Houston Batman”, a real-life Batman encounter that occured in Houston in 1953.

Citing a report in the Houston Chronicle, Redfern recounted the words on eye-witness Hilda Walker. She said:

“Suddenly about 25 feet away I saw a huge shadow across the lawn. I thought at first it was the magnified reflection of a big moth caught in the nearby street light. Then the shadow seemed to bounce upward into a pecan tree. We all looked up. That’s when we saw it.”

Hilda went on to describe the entity to the newspaper as follows: “It was the figure of a man with wings like a bat. He was dressed in gray or black tight-fitting clothes. He stood there for about 30 seconds swaying on the branch of the old pecan tree… It had the exact appearance of a man dressed in a tight fitting uniform similar to a paratrooper. He was encased in a halo of light.”

I don’t know about you, but I hope a Houston Batman movie is developed post haste. Plug Gary Busey in the title role and you have the makings of an entertaining film.
