DC just unveiled their plans for a global Batman Day celebration on Sept. 19, 2020. Fans of all ages are invited to participate in a wide-range of activities to honor the iconic DC Super hero. For the first time, fans will have the opportunity to drive along with a “Batman and The Riddler” theme on Waze.

While driving you can tune in to the Waze and DC Superhero or Super-Villain playlists on Spotify via the Waze Audio Player feature.

Additonally fans will be able to access free digital comics, free activity kits for kids, a Batman Virtual 5K/10K Run/Walk and even a digital mystery to solve in which fans can put on their cape and cowl and transform into their strongest self.

Fans can also team up with Batman to protect Gotham City in a series of digital activities, such as joining the celebration on social media and helping Batman to piece together a series of clues left behind by The Riddler. If you can decode these mischievous hints, you’ll unlock exclusive, limited-time reveals! The adventure begins when the virtual Bat-Signal lights up at 12 p.m. PT, Sept. 18, on the @DCComics Twitter.

The new Waze Batman theme allows for more than 100 million monthly active Waze users to ride along with Batman and The Riddler from Aug. 31 to Oct. 31. Waze drivers can opt to hear directions in the style of Batman, voiced by Batman: The Animated Series actor Kevin Conroy, as well as select a custom Batmobile icon and Batman mood. Drivers who want a slightly more villainous experience can select The Riddler voice directions (voiced by actor Wally Wingert), mood and custom vehicle. Waze users worldwide can experience the Batman theme in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.

Fans can join in on social media using the hashtag #BatmanDay and visit http://www.BatmanDay.com for the latest news and updates.
