The Batman Concept Art Reveals Unused Insignia Designs

Warner Bros.’ The Batman offered audiences a vastly different, somewhat darker take on the Dark Knight’s mythos, reimagining some of the titular superhero’s gadgets and style. A lot of work went into Batman’s design, that much is clear from the number of unused designs for his insignia alone.

Concept artist and costume designer Glyn Dillon shared some of the artwork that shaped The Batman on social media, including a page-worth of unused designs for Bruce Wayne’s insignia. They vary wildly in shape, size, with some appearing more threatening than others.

Dillon wrote, “‘The Batman’ was an odd job, what with Covid hitting after only a few weeks of shooting.” He went on to say, “Matt Reeves was excellent to work with, and Robert Pattinson couldn’t have been better in any way. And Greig Fraser made it all look beautiful. All the hard work that everyone put into it, really shows up on screen. I’m very proud to have been a part of it.”

Warner Bros.’ The Batman captured audiences worldwide. Over the course of its theatrical release, the film has grossed $735.15 million worldwide. Domestically, the film has earned $331.951 million, surpassing the box office earnings of previous DCEU films, including Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Justice League and Suicide Squad. On top of that, Matt Reeves’ film has garnered praise from critics and audiences alike. While some criticized the film’s near-three hour runtime, many praised its grittier take on the Batman’s characters and setting.

Not long after the release of The Batman in theaters, Reeves shared a deleted scene online, featuring a confrontation between Robert Pattinson’s Batman and Barry Keoghan’s Joker. The short, five-minute clip saw Batman discuss the Riddler case with the Clown Prince of Crime, with the latter teasing the vigilante and comparing the Riddler to the Caped Crusader’s campaign and persona. What made the deleted scene that much more intriguing was the fact that it unveiled Keoghan’s appearance as the iconic supervillain, which was hidden in the theatrical film.

Those awaiting the home release of The Batman won’t have to wait too long. In fact, the upcoming home media release will arrive sooner than previously reported, albeit only slightly. Where earlier reports announced a release date of April 19, The Batman will be available to stream on HBO Max on April 18.
