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.
