Emote Batman Returns Poster by Mirz123 Emote Batman Returns Poster by Mirz123
The Bat, the Cat, and the Penguin

I am a huge Batman fan. Though I love the new series with Christian Bale, my heart still rests with the Michael Keaton version from the early 90s. That was when I was in the height of my batmania and I adored the way Tim Burton did those movies.

A while back, the first movie came on t.v. and I realized my kids had never seen it. I don't have the films on dvd, so I asked for them for Christmas, and I did get the first two (I don't even think of 3 and 4 as being legitimate parts of the series). We ultimately ended up watching Batman Returns, which was my fave of the two. I started getting all nostalgic and remembering how much I really loved that movie. I then started thinking of the movie poster and decided I wanted to emotize it. So, I've been working on this off and on for a while, but finished it recently.

This does not mirror the full movie poster. 1--I have been using a single template for all my emote movie posters and it was a bit too small to get everything in. 2--*Ravenswd liked this version with just the faces the best, so I'm running with it. I do have a larger, more accurate version in my scraps [link] , as well as a comparison picture of the original movie poster [link] .

I really struggled with this piece and was not sure if I could pull it off, but I am pretty proud of the results.

Great work, I also love Keaton and Burton's two Batman movies.

Absolutely. Love them. Even though I do like the current incarnation of the character, my heart still belongs to the Burton version of the Dark Knight. :heart:
