Michael Keaton

Embracing the colder weather in watching the frosty, snow-dusted car-crash circus that is Batman Returns a couple of nights ago, I spotted something I’d never actually noticed before: Bruce Wayne rocks some spectacular glasses. They’re round at the top and octagonal on the bottom. Incredible.

Yes, I am easily impressed.

They might be the best thing about the entire film… well, beside the cats, of course, and the man actually donning these spectacular specs. It’s a shame Keaton’s Batman outings, while enjoyable, weren’t the strongest in terms of story; he was an excellent choice for lead, and brought much to the role beside the rough and tumble. He remains my favourite Batman of all.

I really went all out for drama with this one – naturally, this meant highlights on a black canvas, and seeking to amplify the moonlight as much as possible. You really can’t go wrong with magical moonlight. Or was it light from the Bat Signal all along? I can’t really remember. Oh well, I’m quite chuffed with how it turned out, either way!

      Cheers, Michael! Adam West runs a close second, of course. 😉

      They are curious, aren’t they! Perhaps they were trendy in 1992, who knows? 😉 Thanks Rebecca – it’s a lot of fun to play with a single colour like this.
