It sounded more and more like "Batman" as the video went on.

Listen to it a few more times.  He actually becomes the Dark Knight.  He certainly emotes better than Christian "Mumble With Your Mouth Full"  Bale.

I'm surprised to find that I like the 1998 one best.

I like what they call the Dark Knight version best, with the 1989 Burton version (two extra "ticks" on the tail) my second favorite.

No idea where they came up with their Batman Begins version. The one they have listed as The Dark Knight is identical to the batarang hand-made by Bruce in Batman Begins, and I'm pretty sure the suit had the same symbol.

Glad I wasn't the only one that thought that.

Here's the movie poster for Batman Begins, and it looks nothing like what's on that list.

It's a sucky poster. One we've already had before on FARK.


I don't like that they confuse the comics/movies/games logos with the actual symbol he used on his chest. All while leaving a bunch more out, like the Frank Miller one.

The logo for Batman Begins (2005) is pretty obviously incorrect. The logo should have the flat wings on top like TDK and TDKR, except in sepia instead of black.

Even the Batman and Robin (1997) logo is gay. The Batman logo is pressed up behind the Robin logo. I mean we all know Robin is the catcher but leave something to the imagination.

Whoever made this is very inconsistent. I was, "WTF" on the Begins one and then after some Google searching it looks like it came from the suit in Begins. Ok whatever but then he uses the marketing logos for TDKR and many others. TDK one is the most recognizable symbol (and used on the spotlight) for the Nolan series.

/amateurs indeed

I thought LOGO was supposed to be gay.

Yeah, it's actually kind of strange, but that logo only shows up on the Batman Begins batsuit. Every other bat logo in the Nolan movies is the Dark Knight one.

So, Batman went to Deep Space 9 in 1993?

I wonder why the '89 Tim Burton movie used a different version on the marketing pieces (movie poster, DVD, etc) than they did on the actual suit. When the movie first came out, did they originally use the suit logo and then it ended up getting changed later? I had to go look up stills from the movie to see that the suit version really did have those extra legs or whatever coming out of the tail, since it didn't look "right" from what I remembered.

I see the marketing version of the logo all over the place. I would imagine it's probably (at least one of) the most recognized version of all of them, to modern audiences, but I don't think I've ever realized before that it wasn't what he wore in the movie.

I'm wondering if someone at DC didn't notice that they had messed up the logo on the suit until after shooting was completed, and then insisted that the correct logo be used for the marketing materials. Honestly, until I saw that chart, I never in all these years noticed that the logo on the suit was different than the classic 80s yellow oval bat, so it wouldn't be hard for the DC folks to miss it until it was too late. Notice that the suit logo is the suddenly the "correct" one for Batman Returns.

That was the first thing I thought of, too.


He and Odo would have clashed over how to handle station security, just like Worf and Odo did. And it'd be awful hard to keep a secret identity with tricorders around.

I like the 2009 Batman & Robin.

However, I don't know which would make for the best batarang. Obviously something I think about.

From the site's comments:
"I thought the one from 1993 was pretty cool, if a little radical, but then I realized it's just a curvy lady in a bathing suit with some serious cleavage and nice thighs.

#cannotbeunseen"

Now I can't see anything else.
