The Dark Knight by JeffVictor The Dark Knight by JeffVictor
In anticipation of the Dark Knight returning to theaters, here's a little tribute to just a few of the memorable looks of the Batman. There are so many versions I would have liked to tackle, like the Bruce Timm animated look, but there was only space for 5. Maybe in the future I will do an expanded evolution to draw more of Batman's famous movie looks.

Keaton looks like he's looking at Cloony like "Really? Are you serious?....Ok yeah thats it I'm outta here, let Iceman do this" lol

The one from 1943 looks like he's trying to cave in his face by sucking in his cheeks while he frowns.

Unfortunately, unforgettably, director Joel Schumacher thought it was "sexy".

Jeff explained that there was only room for 5, and do we really need to see two sets of Bat-nipples? Joel Schumacher's bastardization is represented by George Clooney there, already. Robert Lowery's overweight and rabbit-eared bastardization from 1949 isn't there either, and apparently nobody even noticed lol.

I am glad Lewis Wilson and Michael Keaton are there. Lewis Wilson is the historic original from 1943 authentic to the original early 1939-1941 noir Batman comic books by creators Bill Finger and Bob Kane/Jerry Robinson where Batman was an eerie and mysterious vigilante outlaw with dramatic thriller horror elementsand Michael Keaton was a return to that authentic shadowy noir eerie mysterious vigilante outlaw with the dramatic thriller thing as the Batman creators had intended before the comics became strictly censored by editorial into wholesome silliness.

Adam West's Batusi Bats was an amusing parody of the silly censored Batman comic books of the '60s era with wholesome Aunt Harriet, etc. as well as a parody of the stupid Robert Lowery movie serial. Bale's was a mixed bag with some faithful elements but became far more bogged down by Nolan's obsession with dry "realism" departing in many ways from faithfulness.

That was hardly a wall of text history book length lecture on the origins of Batman. If you don't want to read someone's post about a subject...then don't. But scorning them because they took the time to share the info with you ... shesh !!!

This is wonderful, a truly great tribute to the many faces of Batman. My favorite is Adam West and Burt Ward. I've been re-watching that series on IFC and loving every minute of it. And oh god, the bat nipples and bat credit card. I almost forgot they existed!

Val's outfit had the gold on the chest logo & his muscle structure was bigger than Clooney's. I found it funny that Chris O'Donnell's chest plate was a lot larger than George's in B & R.

Great work regardless dude!

Thanks for the link! Sorry, I'm a little low on funds, but thank you for the trouble anyway. Would you ever consider doing a Robin one (Douglas Croft, Burt Ward, Chris O'Donnell in both Batman Forever and Batman and Robin, and maybe John Blake)? If not, then this tiny Burt Ward will more than suffice (and I've already caught a glimpse of the Batman and Robin incarnation in your Batman and Robin sum-up).
