Apparently, everyones favorite Caped Crusader will be enshrined forever on the Hollywood Walk of Fame with his very own star!
I love Batman just as much as everybody else does, but when I first saw this news I was kinda confused. Like, are we really putting fictional characters on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? One google search later and I found there’s a bunch of them there already!
And there’s a wide cast of characters that made it..
Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Which is a given. The fictional King and Queen of the animated character world. That makes all the sense in the world.
The Simpsons. This makes sense too. The show has been on for 30 years making it the longest running American sitcom ever. And even if you don’t watch the show, you know who Homer is when you see him.
The last two are kinda strange though.
Shrek? I mean yeah I know everyone loves Shrek and the movies are all delightful but..to garner a star? I feel like the people who vote on this were just prisoners of the moment with this one. Shrek belongs in a swamp, not Hollywood.
And lastly, Godzilla? A giant, radioactive lizard. And I LOVED Godzilla as a kid, still do, but does he really deserve a star? I mean…for all intents and purposes, he’s a monster. A monster that destroys cities. The King of the Monsters having such a prestigious honor just seems so strange to me.
Along with Batsy, there’s a wide cast of characters getting the honor this year:
Julia Roberts, Mahershala Ali, Chris Hemsworth, Octavia Spencer, Chrisina Applegate, Wendy Williams, Terry Crews, 50 cent (!!!!), Alicia Keys, Billy Idol, Dave Chappelle, and a few others.
50 Cent getting in is crazy to me. Curtis Jackson is getting a star on the Walk of Fame. That’s insane to me and I’m sure it is to Fiddy as well.
I also love that the God of Thunder is getting inducted too. Chris Hemsworth HAS to show up in his full Thor outfit right? Has to.
But imagine being one of these people and knowing you’re gonna get oversahdowed by Bruce Wayne. What a wild world.
P.S. I don’t know how the accepting of this ‘award’ goes, but if they have Robert Pattinson accept this since he is the new Batman, I will be furious.
