First official Batman-related credit for Jerry Robinson

The Joker is not the first Batman antagonist to headline a standalone live-action movie. (Catwoman beat him by 15 years.)

Yet Joker, which opened today, does have a significant first up its sleeve: Jerry Robinson, early Batman ghost artist and co-creator of not only the Joker but Robin, is finally credited—and on equal footing with Bob Kane and Bill Finger. No "with"!
