People take for granted the skill Chris Nolan exercises in creating realism in his Batman movies. The fact that there is a legitimately heart-wrenching scene involving Batman staring at his own cowl should not be lost on anyone. Its next to impossible not to make a scene like that cheesy. Of course having a phenomenal actor like Christian Bale in the role helps.

Another early poster, and especially cool since it makes use of the "darkest before the dawn" line which became synonymous with TDK. In this case, "Justice is Always Darkest before the Dawn." Fucking cool.

This is a cut scene from Batman Forever in which Batman meets his psyche and gets his head eaten off. Well... he confronts his Bat-self anyway. What a retarded turn of events that would have been. Why bring attention to the fact that Batman doesn't look much like a Bat. At least not next to a human-size version. It would be like putting actual photographs of real turtles in a Ninja Turtles cartoon, South Park style. I guess.

Why does part of me think the gray Batsuit would be sick to see in at least ONE movie. This is an odd suit because it features the armor pattern from Returns, yet the little be-footed Batlogo of the 1989 film... Weird... and I don't have an answer for ya. This is supposedly behind the scenes of the original movie but...I don't know! Also its weird because the Bat logo was connected to the cowl in the original movie. And why would they apply the logo BEFORE painting the costume black?? This picture is a colossal mind-fuck on 47 levels.

Sorry but this Batman costume is tits. I love Batman in a more vampiric, leathery costume as depicted here. Very dark, slick and pointy.
Obviously that's Bob Kane, creator of Batman. Maybe Bill Finger had a lot to do with it, but that dude sounds like a whiney bitch to me. Anyway, Bob Kane once said he originally envisioned Batman as all black but that printing techniques were such at the time that it would look like a blob of shit. Anyway...

Howard Stern on Superman's denouncement of his American citizenship 5/2/2011: "I heard Batman was thinking of joining the tea-party, he's very upset." Very funny, but Bruce Wayne would never join the tea-party. Remember, he is a genius.
