The Gotham Globe is one of the largest daily newspapers in Gotham City, with nation-wide syndication across North America in the Tim Burton/Joel Schumacher Batman film series.

In competition with the Daily Gotham, one of the paper’s more notable employees is inquistive reporter Alexander Knox.

Behind the Scenes

  • When Knox walks into Gotham Globe and gets mocked about his recent Batman article, a co-worker hands him a funny Batman drawing just to rub it in. But watch as a coffee cup on the worker’s desk turns itself completely around between shots.
  • In the original script, the paper Knox and Vicki worked for was the Gotham Gazette, not the Gotham Globe. This was possibly done to distance the paper from the real-world Gotham Gazette; a newspaper located in New York City.


  • The Gotham Globe headline reading telling of the murders of Thomas and Martha Wayne was dated Thursday, October 26, likely placing the date of their murders on Wednesday, October 25.
  • While not appearing in the comics, descriptions of comic-based newspapers like the Gotham Gazette mention that they are in competition with the Gotham Globe.
