Michael E. Uslan

Michael E. Uslan and his long time producing partner Benjamin Melniker have brought some of the most memorable films to the big screen.

Following Constantine, Uslan is working on Batman Begins with director Christopher Nolan and starring Christian Bale as a young Bruce Wayne. His other executive producing film credits include Batman, Batman Returns, Batman Forever, Batman and Robin, Catwoman and Batman: Mask of The Phantasm.

Uslan grew up on comics and actually learned to read from them. He went on to become a renowned authority on comic book history and at Indiana University taught the world's first accredited college course on comic books, also writing the accompanying textbook The Comic Book in America. It was not long before he received a call from DC Comics with a job offer. The talented writer was able to make his dream come true and write Batman comic books. He's written for a number of comic titles as well as dozens of books that chronicle the history of comics including America At War – A History of War Comics, Mysteries in Space – A History of Science Fiction Comics, and The Pow! Zap! Wham! Comic Book Trivia Quiz Book.

His additional writing credits include the internationally syndicated newspaper comic strip, Terry and the Pirates; the historic comic book project with Stan Lee, Just Imagine; the hardback Batman graphic novel, Detective 27; and Dick Clark's The First 25 Years of Rock and Roll.

Uslan is the recipient of an Emmy Award as Executive Producer of the popular children's series Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego?, an Annie Award for the animated movie Batman Beyond: Return of The Joker, and a Peoples Choice Award for the movie Batman. His other producing work in television includes Robin Cook's Harmful Intent and the chilling PBS mini-series Three Sovereigns for Sarah, based on the true story of the Salem Witch Trials.

Uslan currently has several projects in development including a film version of the DC Comic title Shazam, a live action feature based upon the legendary Will Eisner's The Spirit, and he is in partnership with Frank Darabont and Chuck Russell on Way Of The Rat.
