Are you guys excited about this new Batman movie? I know I’ve joked about there being so damned many Batmen and all of the movies being remakes of remakes of remakes, but in all honesty, I think they’ve gotten the Batman remake recipe down pat this time. While I’m not a huge fan of Christian Bale, and I still well up whenever I see Heath Ledger‘s portrayal of the Joker, I’m totally on board with this movie. I think it’s going to be pretty good.
But I am questioning the official poster: what’s it supposed to be? I mean, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that it’s a photo of skyscrapers, but what’s going on with them? Are we looking at this shot aerially? If we are, it looks like Batman’s going to be fighting some kind of epic flood from the sewers; Gotham appears to be filling up with water. If we’re looking at it, oh, I don’t know, from another angle, it looks like the buildings are crumbling from the top down. It’s like one of those damned Magic Eye posters that were all sorts of popular back in the later part of last decade.
And if you’re wondering, YES, it took me a few minutes to see the image of a bat between all of those buildings. I never said I was TERRIBLY perceptive, you know.
