Its officially Batman Day, offering the perfect excuse to spend your entire Saturday evening working through Christopher Nolans Dark Knight trilogy.

And what better way to celebrate 80 years of Bruce Wayne than to shine the Bat-Signal in the very city which inspired the dark and moody aesthetic of Gotham?

In honour of this auspicious anniversary, the iconic spire of New Yorks Empire State Building will be lit up Batman Yellow, while the Bat-Signal will be projected on the west side face of Brooklyns Domino Sugar Refinery. Whether or not the man himself will rock up has yet to be determined.

New York based fans may gather outside at 8 pm local time to see the classic signal flash, and to share their love of DC Comics history.

As reported by Comicbook, President of Warner Bros. Global Brands and Experiences, Pam Lifford, stated:

The Bat-Signal is easily one of the most recognizable images among all superhero iconography and this is going to be a remarkable sight as we transcend borders, languages and cultures to bring us all together with this single experience,

We are proud to send up the Bat-Signal on Batman Day because it is an important beacon of inspiration that makes us all believe that its possible to take hardship and turn it into something good. Batman Day is a global celebration for all the fans.

New Yorkers arent the only ones beaming their appreciation for the Caped Crusader. The instantly recognisable signal will also glow in eleven cities worldwide, including Melbourne, Tokyo, Berlin and Barcelona; uniting fans across the globe in their devotion to all things Batman.

In Los Angeles, DC Comic and Warner Bros. will be even be hosting a Batman 5K night run, which reportedly culminates with a very special bat signal lighting ceremony.
