The problem you face is that you need a "license" to use Batman...and any other "superhero" who is protected by "copyright" laws.Under US copyright laws, you need permission from the owner of the copyright before using a copyright image or facsimile of character for commercial purposes.If you did not obtain permission (license) then you could be sued for copyright infringement.
This is the part of my job I don't like...when the law is not in favor of my customer. I wish I could tell you that you can do this to promote your business, but I can only provide you information based on the law so that you can act on the best available information to you...I wish I had better news, but can only hope you recognize and understand my predicament and don't shoot the messenger. I'm sorry!
