The Batman Store

http://www.slashfilm.com/photos-batman-returns-batman-store/
Just in time for Christmas?
 Apparently, in an early version of Tim Burton‘s Batman Returns, one scene took place at a Batman-themed store.
In the script, the store was promptly destroyed, but eventually the scene got cut at some point anyway. The set was built, though, and one website has some incredible photos of it. Check out the Batman Returns Batman store below.
Thanks to 1989Batman.com (via Reddit) for the awesome photos. Head there for even more behind the scenes stuff including excerpts from the script describing this scene.

More Joker History

Gwynplaine’s (Conrad Veidt) fixed grin and disturbing clown-like appearance was a key inspiration for comic book talents writer Bill Finger and artist Bob Kane in creating Batman’s greatest enemy, The Joker.
Taken from the 1928 film The Man Who Laughs.
 

 

Happy Friday, be Vigilant

Death of the Joker??

Little Fact That You Might Not Know About The Joker - He Was Almost Killed Off

Despite being Batman’s all-time greatest nemesis, The Joker very nearly didn’t make it past his first issue. The early Dark Knight appearances – inspired by their more vicious pulp magazine roots – were characterised by a lot more death, murder and Batman wielding a handgun than the later iterations of the hero, and the Ace Of Knaves very nearly fell prey to it. He made his first appearance in 1940’s Batman #1, and was slated to be killed off in the very next issue.

The final page saw the defeated villain accidentally stabbed himself, and the Dynamic Duo legging it. Presumably so that they don’t get the rap for it. Most of the bad guys in those early comics were only supposed to make one-off appearances, but then-editor Whitney Ellsworth passed down a mandate deciding the character was too good to be bumped off. So the last panel was hastily redrawn, and then in every other appearance it looked like he died off-screen, only to return the following month.
