Evolution of The Batman Logo

Recommended Posts

It is amazing how different they all are and yet how most of them, except for Batman & Robin ( :censored:astic movie), symbolize batman rather well.

It's simple.

We re-brand the batman.

I feel like I've generally associated Batman with the 1998 logo, but it is amazing that they all easily and collectively speak for the same character

WTF is that in 1983..... Its amazing how many times these have changed over the years really not feeling the direction the logos have gone recently but IMO the movies are getting better and better.

I love this. I've been a die-hard Batman for for 20 years and the Bat-symbols that have evolved since 1992 take me right back to each depiction of the character. I love the Batman Returns logo the best. Not sure what 2007 is all about - looks weird. And 83 is just wrong.

Btw after looking over this poster I have no idea why the Batman: Beyond logo is in here since it is for the future Batman (Terry McGuiness) not for the Bruce Wayne Batman.

I grew up a Batman fan with the 90s batman movies that at the time seemed awesome. Now I look back and they just seem unbelievably cheesy. They hit a high note with The Dark Knight. For some reason The Dark Knight Rises just didn't live up to it. Seemed to drag on and Bane wasn't as powerful as the Joker.

After some quick research(Google :P ), the 1983 logo was just for the comic cover.

I wondered why Batman had such a troublesome relationship with the rest of the Justice League, but after that scathing condemnation, I now understand. (The 80s had some cheesy covers)

The 1998 logo is the most well recognized one.

It blows my mind to learn that this came about in 1998. I had always thought it was the same overall for years, and I own several items with this logo on it. I guess the Animated Series really did shoot Batman up into a higher popularity.

Had to share. As a semi-comic junkie, the Lantern Corps was a FANTASTIC SERIES for DC Comics. Basically, the concept was that there are other Lanterns besides "Green" and well, basically everyone gets a Lantern Ring of some color.

While I like the direction they took the logo in with the Dark Knight film trilogy, this right here is the first one that comes to mind when I think of Batman.

Am I the only one who noticed that the 1998 logo also happens to be the logo used on the posters and box-art for the 1989 movie?

That's an interesting point, actually. I'm pretty sure that was also used on the suit. As for the one they have for the '89 movie here, I don't think I've ever seen it before.

Upon further research the '89 logo above IS in fact on the suit in the '89 movie, even though the '98 logo was used for promotions...and the '98 logo is also used in the Animated Series which is mysteriously absent from this list
