15 Ways Batman Has Changed Through the Decades: First Appearance vs. Latest Appearance
The Batman was a grimmer, darker, more grounded take on Batman than ever before (which is also what the last two were, and one featured Christian Bale pounding the crap out of Bane, and Ben Affleck just shooting people), and is the new definition of who the Batman is for kids growing up. He is the icon now. But who was he before? Who have all of them been?
The Batman is filled with all of Batman’s classic icons — the signal, the weird car, and more Batvillains than you can shake a bat at – Catwoman, Penguin, Falcone, The Riddler, Hush (because Riddler kinda just stole his whole act), and best of all, the Clown Boy. It’s time to look back at Batman’s cinematic past and all the ways he, his friends, his lovers, his allies, loved ones and his enemies have changed over all their adaptations, from the comics to now.
