Red Robin’s Batman Wallpaper.
Batman is one of the most popular superhero characters ever created, and it’s been pretty much impossible to create a decent wallpaper for him. There’s just so many different ways to display his amazing and varied appearances, and it would be hard to make a wallpaper that suits all of them.
That being said, I’ve gone ahead and made a compilation of some of the best Batman wallpapers, which I think you’re going to enjoy.
I think it’s safe to say that the majority of Bat-memes out there are in some way inspired by the style provided by Bob Kane and Bill Finger for the original 1930s Batman comic books. This classic style is often imitated but never replicated. Here is a great example, featuring a pose from the very first Batman comic book:
As you can see, it’s been imitated many times over the years, but you’ll rarely find a wallpaper that captures that iconic look quite like this one.
This is the kind of Batman you’ll always see featured in movie posters, magazines, and TV show episodes. Every superhero looks better next to the Gotham City skyline, and Batman usually makes for one hell of a memorable backdrop. Especially when he’s being chased by the villains that he’s been pursuing all evening:
There is probably no other superhero character as versatile as Batman. He can be charming and witty one minute, and the next he’s kicking ass or hanging off a building in combat gear. It’s hard to imagine a more interesting and engaging personality, and it’s always fun to see his various costumes and outfits.
Not only that, but he’s also one of the most interesting characters in comics history when it comes to his backstories and origin stories. There have been a lot of different versions of Batman over the years, and it was only recently that we started seeing a new take on the character emerge in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy. Some people even think that Batman represents a fundamental shift in the genre. It’s certainly an interesting character that has inspired lots of people, and it’s always fun to see how he continues to evolve with the times.
Although Batman is usually associated with darker topics such as crime and punishment, there is also another side to him that most people aren’t aware of. As you may know, Batman was once afflicted with amnesia, which caused him to forget the most important thing in his life: his sworn duty to protect Gotham City. For years, Batman wandered the streets of Gotham City, believing that he was doing the right thing by protecting the innocent. Eventually, he regained his memories and returned to his role as the Dark Knight.
During one of the Dark Knight films, we get a glimpse of Batman’s early years, and it’s revealed that he was once a hero and a champion of justice who fought crime in Gotham City. In the wake of his parents’ untimely deaths, Batman decided to dedicate his life to protecting Gotham City and making it a safer place for the people who live there. After his parents were murdered, his only solace was in his work. He would constantly be reading the classifieds, looking for criminals who matched the characteristics of his parents’ killers. One day, Alfred Pennyworth (Michael Caine) told him that he had found the men who killed his parents. Batman decided to take them on as his first case, and from that point forward, he dedicated his life to fighting crime.
Even after he recovered his memories, Batman continued to investigate his parents’ death. The mastermind behind his parents’ murder was Carmine Falcone (John Carpentar), and it was eventually revealed that he was in league with his father’s former partner, Jerry Cornelius (David Warner). Batman was determined to bring Falcone to justice, no matter who stood in his way. In the end, it was Gordon (Gary Oldman) himself who helped bring down Falcone, who had manipulated him into becoming a criminal mastermind. It was also revealed that Batman’s parents were killed when he was a boy because he was the biological son of Carmine Falcone, so he felt that he owed it to his parents to avenge them both. This was why he chose to fight crime as a vigilante rather than join the police force, as most people would have advised him to do.
Batman is a complex character. He’s often seen as a dark knight, someone who fights crime. However, we also need to remember that he does have a sense of justice, which he tries to instill in those around him. Batman doesn’t kill, and he certainly doesn’t condone crime. In many ways, he’s the polar opposite of a traditional superhero. In my opinion, there is no better illustration of Batman’s dual nature than the Tim Burton film, 1989’s Batman: The Animated Series. Watch the following clip, and you’ll see what I mean:
As you can probably tell from the clip, the animated series is much darker than your usual superhero story. For starters, there are no pretty fairies or superheroes to save us from the villains. Everything is presented in a hyper-realistic fashion, and the tone is very serious. There are also some grotesque villains, such as Mr. Freeze, who are more of a horror film staple than a traditional comic book character. It’s quite a grim outlook on life.
That being said, there is still a glimmer of hope at the end of that grim tale. Even though the Joker (Jack Nicholson) is presumably destined to go down in history as the greatest villain ever, that doesn’t mean that he wins. The writers do a great job of showing us that even though the world has changed and grown more sophisticated since then, with computers taking over most tasks, there is still room for a good man to emerge. It doesn’t hurt that the narrator at the end is Gabriel Byrne, either. He plays the part quite eloquently.
It’s been a while since we’ve had a good Batman wallpaper, but it seems that the wait is finally over. Marvel Comics recently released a new take on the character, and it’s safe to say that they’ve finally given him some much-needed fashion flair. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the new look, let me introduce you to the Modern Batman.
The new Dark Knight is sleek, stylish, and very fashionable. It was initially announced that Gabriel Gothaitis would provide the art for the new Batman comic book series, but he had to drop out at the last minute due to personal reasons. Fortunately, his replacement was none other than the talented Sean Murphy. Besides being a skilled artist, Sean is also a fashion stylist who has worked with celebrities such as Rihanna and Keira Knightly. Here is a good example of what he’s done:
As you can see above, this is the Classic Batman, but with a modern twist. He is still very recognizable as the Dark Knight, but he’s also given a sleek, modern makeover. The colors are also very vibrant. They add a nice touch of life to an otherwise dreary scene. If you’re a fan of Marvel Comics, then this is a must-read series. Don’t forget, you can also get the individual issues from the Kindle Store, and save them for later. It’s easy to download and read on your Kindle. Even those of you who read comics on your phones or tablets can download the issues to read later. It’s a quick and easy way to be caught up on all the latest developments in the Batman universe.
I think this new take on Batman is extremely stylish. Especially when you consider that it’s Gabriel Gothaitis’s first professional venture into the world of comics. I wouldn’t be surprised if this was the start of a long and fruitful career. Besides the fact that the art is quite stunning, there is also a lot of variety to the characters and scenes. It’s good to see that they’ve given us something new, and I for one am glad that they did. It’s been a long time since we had a new Batman wallpaper. The last one that I can recall was from the Christopher Nolan Dark Knight Trilogy, and that was over a decade ago.
Here is where it gets really interesting. As I was researching this blog post, I came across something very special. You see, there is a way to take the gorgeous imagery that we’ve seen in the previous two wallpapers, and combine it with a breathtaking view of Gotham City. I’ll give you a hint. It involves a little known 1980s TV show called The Twilight Zone.
