A documentary film on Bill Finger, the overlooked co-creator of DC's Batman, is in the works at Hulu, according to A.V. Club. Announced at the Television Critics Association Summer press tour by Hulu Head of Content Craig Erwich, the as-yet-untitled film will be part of a documentary film series titled Limelight.

In September 2015, DC Comics (and its parent company Warner Bros.) began crediting Finger as co-creator of Batman. DC had previously given Bob Kane sole credit as creator of Batman due to a contract signed with DC's predecessor, National Comics.

Other planned films in Hulu's Limelight series include The Dana Carvey Show, former James Bond actor George Lazenby, the defunct magazine Big Brother, and iconic artist Shepard Fairey.

No release date or list of production talent involved has been disclosed by Hulu.
