Did you know that there was another Pinoy Batman made before Dolphy's James Batman in 1966 and Jing Abalos' Batman Fights Dracula in 1967? Inspired by the popular DC comics superhero and based from the Horror Komiks serial by Romy Espiritu and Marcelo Isidro, D'lanor Productions produced Alyas Batman at Robin in 1965, probably the first Pinoy Batman and Robin in the history of Philippine movies. The popular crime buster duo were portrayed by Bob Soler as Batman and Lou Salvador, Jr, as Robin. Soler was best remembered as the first Captain Barbell (1964) and later as Captain Philippines (1965) and Alyas Phantom (1966), all superheroes.
