Dark Knight Returns By Christopher Stevens

Artist Christopher Stevens rendered Frank Miller’s Dark Knight Returns with prismacolor colored pencil, copic marker and watercolor on bristol board.

Here is what he has to say about the image:

“As an 80’s kid and huge Batman fan, DKR was a big deal to me, so on the few occasions I’ve been asked to draw Bats in his armor suit have all been a treat for me. I’m very curious to see how the film handles this material. I never thought there would be a major Hollywood film that actually recreated this story or was even inspired by it. Crazy times.”

DC Entertainment announced today that bestselling, iconic Batman writer and artist Frank Miller will write the epic conclusion of the celebrated The Dark Knight Returns saga. The “The Dark Knight III: The Master Race” is the sequel to Miller’s 1986 classic The Dark Knight Returns – heralded by TIME Magazine as one of the 10 greatest graphic novels of all time – and its 2001-2002 follow-up series Batman: The Dark Knight Strikes Again.

Miller will be joined by acclaimed writer Brian Azzarello (100 Bullets, Joker, and Wonder Woman) on the eight-issue comic book periodical, to be published twice a month under the DC Comics imprint.  Marking the 30th anniversary of The Dark Knight Returns original series, this periodical is slated for publication beginning in late Fall 2015.

“Batman remains my favorite comic book hero and a sequel to Dark Knight is going to be daunting,” said Miller, “but we’ll do our best.”

“We are thrilled to have Frank back home at DC writing Batman,” according to Dan DiDio and Jim Lee, Co-Publishers for DC Entertainment. “The story he and Brian have crafted is an astounding and triumphant conclusion to this seminal body of work which influenced and shaped generations of readers and creators alike.”

According to Azzarello, “It’s been an amazing experience collaborating with Frank these past six months. I think we have an epic story that these characters truly deserve.”

10 Facts You Might Not Know About Tim Burton’s Batman

CB779bZUMAEn0O3

Before Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman movie, Batman was largely known for the campy Adam West/Burt Ward TV series. In fact, they wanted to make a Batman movie based on that show called Batman in Outer Space.

Batman-1989-Original-1

Luckily, two movie producers bought the rights and wanted to make a darker version of Batman’s story. In the mid-80s, after the success of Ghostbusters, director Ivan Reitman was attached to direct and he wanted to cast Bill Murray as Batman and Eddie Murphy as Robin. These are just some of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which heads to Gotham with the original Batman!

While the Bill Murray/Eddie Murphy movie never got made, Warner Bros. eventually hired Tim Burton, who wanted Michael Keaton to star. Keaton was primarily known for his comedic roles and his casting caused a major controversy. If you think that modern comic book fans are the only ones to complain about casting, back in 1988 angry comic fans sent over 50,000 handwritten letters to the Warner Bros. offices complaining about Keaton as Batman.
