Matt Reeves revealed new ‘The Batman’ Logo and Awesome Jim Lee Poster

DC Comics’ news continues to roll in today as director Matt Reeves unveils the new and gorgeous-looking official logo for his upcoming superhero reboot movie The Batman. Reeves also published a stunning Batman poster by DC Publisher and Chief Creative Officer – and of course comic artist extraordinary – Jim Lee. Batman made other news today when it was announced Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton will reprise their respective roles as Batmen from various realities, in the planned superhero multiverse film The Flash starring Ezra Miller.

This is a particularly artistic logo, and note that the bat is displayed with the same mechanical appearance as the logo on Robert Pattinson’s costume. Speculation – which I think is correct – has been that the bat emblem of the costume uses pieces of the gun that killed Bruce Wayne’s parents, dismantled and rearranged in a shield for his heart.

This logo will look spectacular on any shirt and hang on the wall like a poster. It also has an aesthetic that makes me think a little – I dare say – the Joker the retro vibe of film.

Reeves promised to show us pictures The Batman on Saturday during his presentation at DC FanDome: Hall of Heroes, the virtual fan event that runs all day August 22 and continues with a second installment on Saturday, September 12 called DC FanDome: Explore the Multiverse.

The panel for The Batman begins at 5:30 p.m. But be sure to catch the former Multiverse 101 panel at 11:15 a.m., and introduce the Flash panel at 11:40 p.m. Could we have some surprising guests? I hope so, but equally we will gain more insight on how The Batman fits into the other DC movie plans.

We’ve already seen Robert Pattinson in the bat suit, from the original video clip to a few official photos. On Saturday, however, we will see some real images of the new Batman in action, as well as some of the villains he encounters and a few allies.

The poster is an aesthetic and tonal approach that distinguishes it from past Batman movie posters. Showing a bat in the text provides a civilized comic sensibility, but it also reminds me of stylized sensibilities found in poster art for movies like Psycho, Vertigo, en M for instance.

Batman fans get an embarrassment of wealth, with not only The Batman and a yield of two past Batmen for The Flash, but also the new Reeves-produced Gotham PD series for HBO Max, plus rumors of other projects for batworld. I will have coverage of DC FanDome – including comments on The Batman footage, Wonder Woman 1984 footage, Justice League by Zack Snyder footage, The Suicide Squad footage, and much more. So be sure to check back, dear readers!
