Battle of the Bat-Symbols

I’ve had Batman on the brain a lot lately. I’m in the middle of reading the Dark Knight Returns, I started watching unCAGEDgamez’s Injustice 2 let’s play and re-watching The Dark Knight several times just because I can now since I downloaded it to my phone.


So I’ve been seeing a lot of the Bat-Symbol, and a lot of different versions of it.

And of course I’ve decided to rank them!

Now I’ve been seeing Batman in movies, print and video games. But, for the sake of ease, I’m going to rank only the cinematic Bat-Symbols. Because everything else is just too much.

The pictures of the suits come from Junk Ball Media’s Batsuit Evolution videos and Google.

8. Batman and Robin (2)

This is just ugly.

7. Batman Forever (1995)

But also the wider Bat-Symbols look stretched out and off-putting to me.

6. Batman (1989)

5. Batman and Robin (1)

Just look at the symbol! Disregard the nips! It’s difficult but not impossible (for the most part).

4. Batman v Superman (2016)

The Fat Bat Symbol. It really took me a while to get used to this one but it’s grown on me recently.

3. The Dark Knight (2008)

Yes, you can turn your head now but at what cost?! AT WHAT COST?! Answer: the sad loss of the awesome Batman Begins Bat-Symbol.

2. Batman Returns (1992)

The black Bat-Symbol against the yellow background is my favorite look.

1. Batman Begins (2005)

Behold, my favorite Bat-Symbol! It’s the perfect size and just looks so good. Sleek seems to be a fitting word here.

So yeah this was just a quick thing because I went through another small Batman obsession recently. I would also like to point out that it was surprisingly difficult to find not-crappy pictures of the Batsuits where you could actually see the symbols.

With that being said, what’s your favorite Bat-Symbol from the movies? Let me know in the comments!
