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.

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.

I went to WonderCon yesterday and had to pick up this awesome Batman and Robin Print by Bruce Yan at the Hero Complex Gallery Booth. This is just one on the many pop culture based prints that HCG is selling at the event and they will be there today at booth 201. Bruce Yan’s print pays homage to the pop art of Roy Lichtenstein and is available in a regular version and an eye popping metallic poster. Swing by the booth and tell them that THE FIRE WIRE sent you.

Batman ’89 Print By Casey Callender

Wow, I was blown away by this incredible depiction of The Dark Knight from Tim Burton’s groundbreaking film and had to share it with my readers!

Casey Callender will sell this ’89 Batman print at WonderCon in Anaheim, CA next month.

The 18 x 24 print will be a WonderCon edition only and will come in an edition of 300 priced at $35 per print. The 24 x 36 prints, which do vary ever so slightly in design, will drop online and will come in an edition of 250 priced at $57 per print. Both editions come with or without credit blocks, your choice.

Here is what Casey had to say about the print:

“One of the other powerful visual elements of the ’89 Batman that stuck out for me were when Keaton would throw down smoke deterrents and disappear into the shadows….always stuck with me, so that was the basis for the print..that and well, …bats”
