Producers of a new Batman stage show have promised the production will not suffer the same problems as Broadway's troubled Spider-Man musical.

"It's a very different show to ours," said Anthony van Laast, creative director of Batman Live. "The only comparison is they're about heroes."

The show, in which the masked vigilante faces a host of comic-book villains, will tour UK arenas from July.
