DC Comics has declared that July 23 is Batman Day, and we are certainly not complaining! The legendary Caped Crusader will be celebrating its 75th year in 2014 and to honor the amazing journey and evolution of Batman, DC has declared today a holiday. To properly mark the occasion, comic shops, bookstores, and even libraries will observe Batman Day, which is, simply put, a full day devoted to all things Dark Knight related. According to DC Comics, participating comic and book stores will be giving away free copies of Detective Comic #27 Special Edition. If you don’t know you’re Batman history then head on over to your local comic book store and pick up a copy because this is an updated version of the first comic that introduced Batman to the world! In order to mix the past with the present and join in on the celebration, Latin Times has ranked the top 15 Batman quotes from Christopher Nolan’s now iconic “Dark Knight” trilogy.

“People need dramatic examples to shake them out of apathy, and I can’t do that as Bruce Wayne. As a man, I’m flesh and blood; I can be ignored, I can be destroyed. But as a symbol … as a symbol I can be incorruptible. I can be everlasting.” -- Bruce Wayne in “Batman Begins”

“Gotham, take control … take control of your city. Behold, the instrument of your liberation! Identify yourself to the world!” -- Bane in “The Dark Knight Rises”

“You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.” -- Harvey Dent in “The Dark Knight”

“Some men aren’t looking for anything logical like money. They can’t be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.” –Alfred Pennyworth in “The Dark Knight”

“When Gotham is ashes, you have my permission to die.” -- Bane in “The Dark Knight Rises”

“It’s not who we are underneath, but what we do that defines us.” -- Rachel Dawes in “Batman Begins”

“He’s the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we’ll hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he’s not our hero. He’s a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A dark knight.” -- Jim Gordon in “The Dark Knight”

“Why so serious?” -- The Joker in “The Dark Knight”

“Why do we fall? So we can learn to pick ourselves back up.” -- Thomas Wayne in “Batman Begins”

“This is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object. You truly are incorruptible, aren't you? You won't kill me out of some misplaced sense of self-righteousness. And I won't kill you because you're just too much fun. I think you and I are destined to do this forever.” -- The Joker in “The Dark Knight”

“I knew Harvey Dent. I was his friend. And it will be a very long time before someone ... Inspires us the way he did. I believed in Harvey Dent.” -- Jim Gordon in “The Dark Knight Rises”

“Endure, Master Wayne. Take it. They'll hate you for it, but that's the point of Batman, he can be the outcast. He can make the choice that no one else can make, the right choice.” -- Alfred Pennyworth in “The Dark Knight”

“The night is darkest just before the dawn. And I promise you, the dawn is coming.” -- Harvey Dent in “The Dark Knight”

“You are as precious to me as you were to your own mother and father. I swore to them that I would protect you, and I haven't.” -- Alfred Pennyworth in “The Dark Knight Rises”

“Don't talk like one of them. You're not! Even if you'd like to be. To them, you're just a freak, like me! They need you right now, but when they don't, they'll cast you out, like a leper! You see, their morals, their code, it's a bad joke. Dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these ... these civilized people, they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve.” -- The Joker in “The Dark Knight”
