Artist Eedaeth brings the cast of The Batman to life with a stylized character lineup that looks like it came straight out of a comic book.
batman might not have received a comic book adaptation, but one artist’s interpretation of the movie’s characters looks like it came right from the pages of a graphic novel.
Artist Eedaeth, who uses the handle @every0nes_uncle on Twitter, shared a “simple” look at batman‘s versions of Joker, Riddler, Batman, Catwoman and the Penguin in a post that quickly went viral, racking up thousands of likes and retweets.
From Batman’s tactical gear to the Riddler’s makeshift mask and oversized green jacket, Eedaeth’s art captures the relatively realistic looks developed by director Matt Reeves and batman‘s costume design team, which was composed of veteran designers David Crossman, Glyn Dillon and Jacqueline Durran. Each character has a stylized appearance reminiscent of a comic or an animated adaptation, however, and Eedaeth’s designs feature more color than Reeves’ relatively mutated film.
Prior to drawing the entire cast of batmanEedaeth tweeted fan art of Barry Keoghan’s Joker and praised the actor’s appearance in a deleted scene since released on the internet.
In the weeks since the film was released in theaters, concept art for batman has appeared online showing the many iterations that Batman and his world went through before the final cut. Early versions of the Batsuit show a more traditional cowl lacking the large collar that actor Robert Pattinson ended up wearing in the movie’s final cut, for instance, and Reeves has defended the Batsuit’s realistic appearance in interviews: “In the suit, you can see the seaming in the cowl. You can see that he’s doing this all himself. You can see that he’s building this car in his garage. You can see the crudeness of it. There had to be a certain unfinished, not polished quality to it.. And the suit needed to protect him, so that needed to…almost [look] like riot gear.”
batman‘s outfits for both The Dark Knight and his supporting cast have yet to be integrated into the more fantastical wardrobes of their comic counterparts. However, variant covers for a variety of DC Bat-Family books were released in March to coincide with the movie’s release date, featuring artists like Lee Bermejo and Rafael Albuquerque’s takes on the movie’s grounded costumes.
