Since his 1939 inception in comics, the Caped Crusader has gone through a plethora of redesigns. From comics, television, video games, and movies. At times feels like it’s nigh impossible that artists can come up with more original content. With every incarnation, we get a new, yet familiar take on the character. Anywhere from a hulking figure in author Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Return, that inspired Zack Snyder’s interpretation of Batman in both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) and Justice League (2017), to the campy-loveable 1960s TV series starring Adam West, the indomitable vocal performance by the iconic Kevin Conroy.
It’s 2021, we welcome Robert Pattison as our new Batman for Matt Reeves film. We’ll see Reeves’ version borrowing details from another of Miller’s creations, Batman: Year One. That emphasizes a more simplistic, practical approach to the costume as he learns to balance both his detective skills and brash temper. This will be without a shadow of a doubt the most investigative work we’ve seen in a film adaptation. Accompanied by a marvelous lineup of villains (The Riddler, Penguin, Catwoman, and many more). With that said, there are so many unused redesigns out there, in this article, we’ll be highlighting the most awesome Batman redesigns by fans.
