Adam West and Burt Ward return as Batman and Robin in new fan art that reimagines iconic Batman movie posters with the cast from the 1966 film.
New Batman fan art reinvents iconic Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher movie posters Batman movies with the cast of the original 1960s Batman TV show. The 60s Batman The show was controversial for many years, as it was seen as a poorly done and overly childish version of the iconic Caped Crusader. The Batman the show’s campy tone motivated Burton to correct course, with Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992) among the darkest cinematic interpretations of the character to date. Following what Warner Bros. considered a disappointing box office run for Batman Returns, Schumacher intervened and rekindled the campy tone with his much maligned Batman forever (1995) and Batman and robin (1997).
Although each generation of Batman the films faced their fair share of criticism upon release, they have all since racked up their own following. Reception towards the classic television show (colloquially called Batman ’66 in reference to the series’ tie-in film released in 1966) softened the most in the years that followed. Even decades after its conclusion, Batman ’66 continues to inspire those who love the character to this day.
Instagram user yeoldeking_creativespero recently shared new fan art that shows posters for the Burton and Schumacher films reimagined with the cast of Batman ’66. The intricate posters revamp the era’s Batman and Robins with the hoods made iconic by Adam West and Burt Ward. They also recast villains, with Caesar Romero’s Joker and Lee Meriwether’s Catwoman making appearances. Check out the images in their entirety below:
The juxtaposition of Batman ’66The characters in posters from the 1990s emphasize the contrast in tone between the two decades. In many ways, Burton’s films laid the groundwork for future cinematic interpretations of Batman. After Schumacher’s films strayed from Burton’s style, the popular and critical poor reception of his films ensured that all future versions of Batman would be dark and gloomy, a legacy that continues to this day with the upcoming film by Matt Reeves in 2022, The batman. The whimsical tone of Batman ’66 is rarely, if ever, seen in contemporary portrayals of the character, both in movies and in comics.
From the 1960s to the present day, Batman has evolved tremendously as a character. The cycle between campy and gritty ensured that no adjacent eras of the character were ever the same. Works of art such as this help to pay homage to all the distinct eras of Batmanthe expansive story of.
