This DC-inspired addition follows last summer’s grand opening of the interactive “Stage 48: Script to Screen” exhibit that anchors the three-hour studio tour.


As part of the Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood, guests can explore sets and sound stages in which some of the greatest films and television shows in entertainment have made history, productions such as Mad Max: Fury Road,  GravityTwo and Half Men, The Big Bang Theory, just to name a few, have been created in these locales.

The tour provides a unique opportunity for film and t.v. lovers to explore the full production process and get an insider’s look at the glory of awards season.


“Since 1934, DC Comics has built a legacy of creating the world’s greatest superheroes and super-villains,” said Danny Kahn, Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood’s Executive Director.


“DC Universe: The Exhibit gives you the chance to explore the world of these characters from their first comic book appearance to our latest feature film.”


Inside DC Universe: The Exhibit, guests get an exclusive sneak peek at David Ayer’s upcoming film, Suicide Squad, as they explore authentic props and costumes from the movie on a rotating basis.


Props from characters The Joker, Deadshot, Harley Quinn, Boomerang, Enchantress, Katana, Diablo, Slipknot, Rick Flag and Killer Croc will interchange throughout the summer in advance of the film’s August release.


The tour also showcases Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice through an interactive exhibit, paying homage to the “Man of Steel” and the “Dark Knight”.


Guest can also put their hands on some kryptonite – Superman’s only weakness – and see striking Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman costumes up close. Lois Lane, Clark Kent, Bruce Wayne and Alfred costumes and original Batcave set pieces will also be on display.

The tour is so well put-together and and does such a great job of offering a unique, insider’s perspective to the world of DC Comics that, in 2015, it won a Travelers’ Choice Award from Trip Advisor and has been recognized as one of the Top 25 Attractions in the United States.

Maybe it’s because the tour allows guests the opportunity not only to see the real sets and sound stages where their favorite films were made but it lets them touch and explore the spaces in a new way.


The tour is not limited to comic book themed movies either, the iconic 110-acre film studio that brought Argo and Ocean’s Eleven to the big screen is on display too. From The Big Bang Theory to Friends, the Studio Tour takes guests behind the camera for a revealing look at how the magic is made.


Guests also explore The Archive, which currently showcases props and costumes from all eight Harry Potter films. Guests are also welcome to stop by the Prop Department, which features one of the largest selections of rare antiquities and modern furniture, rugs, drapery, lighting and hand props from Hollywood’s golden era.


And can then travel to the Picture Car Vault, home to some of Batman’s most famous vehicles, including the new Batmobile from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the Tumbler from The Dark Knight trilogy and the Bathammer from “Batman and Robin.”
