"Batman & Bill" Documentary Premieres On Hulu On May 6

23 April 2017 6:28 AM, PDT

The new documentary "Batman & Bill" is sure to be controversial. It tackles the subject of who actually created the iconic world of Batman, who debuted in comic books way back in 1939.

Since the 1970s U.N.C.L.E. fans dealt with promising rumors that a big screen version was in the works, originally to star Robert Vaughn and David McCallum, who starred in the TV series. However, these projects ended up being thwarted by various factors. In 1983, Vaughn and McCallum did star in "Return of The Man From U.N.C.L.E", a one-shot TV movie reunion.  When the 2015 film was released it bore little resemblance to the TV series except for the Cold War setting and the names of the characters.
