Now that The Batman has finally been released to theaters, we can now all indulge in our favorite superhero’s glory, but it’s not too soon to decorate our walls with his greatest moment on the big screen. That’s where the magic of Photoshop comes in, as we have an abundance of HD wallpapers to choose from that are perfect for our cell phones, tablets, and laptops. So let’s dive right in.
The Inspiration For The Batman
Fans of DC Comics and the Batman legend will no doubt be over the moon to see the gritty crime fighter depicted in the new movie as a true dark knight – one who dons a traditional black suit with a red cape. While Christian Bale’s Batman isn’t the first to don the red and black, he’s one of the best versions yet, embodying the character’s status as an anti-hero whose iconic costumes will be worn by fans for years to come. For those who want to decorate their walls with a dark knight that isn’t afraid to show his teeth, this is the wallpaper for you.
The Timeless Quality Of The Batman
As someone who has spent a lot of time drawing and painting on computers, I can appreciate the timeless quality of digital art. That’s why I was so excited to see that the Batman film’s stock photos were put into a photomontage using only free software such as Gimp and Photoshop. While there are clearly areas where the practical effects fall short of the CGI madness we’ve seen in other Marvel movies, the fact remains that this is still very much a reality-based superhero flick, and that’s what makes it so special. I’m not saying the effects are bad, just different – like the 3-D glasses anyone can get these days that make everything look so much cooler than usual! The fact is, what you see on screen doesn’t change, and that’s the beauty of it. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a photomontage of myself to finish before the sun sets so I can look like my favorite superhero once more.
The Dark Knight Rising
So you’ve decided to be The Batman, huh? Well, don’t get any funny ideas – that’s quite a dangerous suit to be wearing. You’re better off staying loyal to your fellow citizens and guarding them from harm. Besides, Batman isn’t a real life hero, he’s a fictional character created for comic books, and as such, doesn’t exactly work the same way as the real thing. You wouldn’t want to put yourself in harm’s way even if you were able to fight off attackers – that’s what the police are there for. Besides, Batman is extremely wealthy, thanks to movie licensing and merchandising, and as such, can afford to be a bit more adventurous with his lifestyle, and to protect those he loves. If you want to get creative, you can use the information from Batman’s bio to write your own, or you can pick any other superhero and apply the same logic. What I’m trying to say is, don’t expect to be compared to Batman – you don’t want to be seen as a copycat of the Dark Knight, because the man doesn’t follow anyone, and certainly not someone he doesn’t know personally. That’s a good thing, because we’re a lot more alike than you’d think – he’s fiercely loyal, he hates injustice, and he’ll stop at nothing to protect the innocent. And since comics are a form of literature, you can use all the logic you want from Batman’s example to prove your own point.
Still Seeing The Batman As An Urban Myth?
I’m sure many people will believe that a man wearing a cape and red and black clothes is actually a superhero, and that he fights crime in Gotham. However, the fact remains that Batman doesn’t really exist, and when he does show up in person, he’s definitely not going to be fighting crime in the streets, but in secret, and for the most part, alone. If you were to compare him to real life superheroes, he’d probably be somewhere in the ballpark of Mr. Fantastic, also known as Frank Fratelli, played by blue-eyed actor Mr. Fantastic, or the Incredible Hulk, as played by, you guessed it, Hulk in the movie. Both of these men possess physical strength far beyond ordinary people, along with a heightened sense of awareness that makes them capable of detecting danger, even when it’s hidden. So while it’s nice to have a few fictional characters like Batman on your side in a fight, the fact is that you’re better off not putting yourself in harm’s way, especially not without proper training. Still, it’s always nice to have a few vigilantes wearing capes and watching our backs – but it’s up to you how much you want to believe in them.
Why So Many Badass Women In The Batman?
Every now and then, a movie comes along that deserves mention and praise for its leading ladies. The Batman is one of those rare films, and its impressive array of strong women – most notably, the dark-haired Barbara Gordon (Anne Hathaway), the intimidating Selina Kyle (Christina Applegate), and the gorgeous Catwoman (Frances McDormand) – are rightfully getting the attention they deserve. I have to admit, as a man who has admired these strong women from the beginning, it’s kind of relieving to see them finally get the credit they deserve – and to see Batman’s cast, overall, as a group of strong, independent women who aren’t afraid to speak their minds, and fight for what they believe in, even if it means clashing with the police or the mafia, or even each other. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some villains I need to stop by and greet – you know, the usual stuff. Be seeing you!
