Batman Concept Art Reveals Unused Insignia Designs


Warner Bros.’ The Batman offered audiences a very different and somewhat darker take on the Dark Knight mythos, reimagining some of the titular superhero’s gimmicks and style. A lot of work has gone into Batman’s design, it’s evident from the number of unused designs for his insignia alone.

Concept artist and costume designer Glyn Dillon shared some of the artwork that shaped The Batman on social media, including a page of unused designs for Bruce Wayne’s insignia. They vary wildly in shape and size, with some looking more menacing than others.

Dillon wrote, “‘The Batman’ was an odd job, with Covid hitting after only a few weeks of filming.” He went on to say, “Matt Reeves was great to work with, and Robert Pattinson couldn’t have been better in any way. And Greig Fraser made it all look great. All the hard work that everyone there really shows itself on screen. I’m very proud to have been a part of it.

Warner Bros.’ The Batman conquered audiences all over the world. During its theatrical run, the film earned $735.15 million worldwide. Domestically, the film grossed $331.951 million, surpassing the box office receipts of previous DCEU films, including Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Justice League and suicide squad. On top of that, Matt Reeves’ film garnered praise from critics and audiences alike. While some criticized the film’s nearly three-hour runtime, many praised its grittier take on Batman’s characters and setting.

Shortly after The Batman hit theaters, Reeves shared a deleted scene online, featuring a confrontation between Robert Pattinson’s Batman and Barry Keoghan’s Joker. The short five-minute clip saw Batman discuss the Riddler case with the Clown Prince of Crime, with the latter teasing the vigilante and comparing the Riddler to the Caped Crusader campaign and character. What made the deleted scene even more intriguing was the fact that it exposed Keoghan’s appearance as the iconic supervillain, which was hidden in the theatrical film.

Those awaiting the home release of The Batman won’t have to wait too long. In fact, the next home press release will arrive earlier than expected, albeit slightly. Where previous reports announced an April 19 release date, The Batman will be available to stream on HBO Max on April 18.
