Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
Tim Burton’s Batman is a fascinating movie. It’s about as far away from Christopher Nolan’s take on the universe as you can get… in fact, when compared to the big screen Batman that came before and after it’s an interesting stepping stone from the ‘60s movie (and TV series) to the Nolan series.
Burton’s Batman is gothic, surreal, but also slightly grounded in some base grittiness that just feels right. The streets feel dirty. Bruce Wayne is as haunted as can be, thanks to a fantastic performance from Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson chewing scenery as The Joker? There’s nothing like it before or since.
Today’s shot sees The Bat getting touched up on the set. I like it as a simple bit of candid simplicity and I hope you guy dig it, too.
Thanks to Andrew Jackson for sending this one along. Click to embiggen!
