Batman Characters Evolution
Courtesy of redditor and film buff Blair Erickson, you’re now able to see an amazing evolution of what many Batman characters have looked like throughout the years. Truth be told, it’s almost refreshing to see that some of the Batman characters actually looked like crap before Batman Forever. Almost.

Between 1943 and the present, there have been many depictions of the Batmobile. Starting with a black Cadillac, a 1949 Mercury, and a Lincoln Futura concept car, the Batmobile eventually became custom work. The car used in Batman and Batman Returns was built on the chassis of a Chevy Impala, and the cars in Batman Forever and The Dark Night are completely custom.
