People of Gotham City, I’m a man of few words - but those words will count, and so will my actions. Police Commissioner Gordon has informed me that he has targeted those businesses suspected of fronting for the syndicate in this city. Before the week is out, we are going to knock down their doors and shed the light of the law on that nest of vipers. Together, we can make this city safe for decent people.
Above is a bunch of proof of concept art I did for a Batman miniseries pitch Kate Leth ( @kateordie ) and I put together last year.
Inspired by DC’s recent Batman ‘66 series, our story would have picked up the threads left by Tim Burton’s Batman Returns. We would have seen the return of Selina Kyle/ Catwoman as well as introductions to ‘Burton-verse’ versions of Robin, Barbara Gordon/Batgirl,
Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy. It also would have showcased the turn of Billy Dee Williams’ Harvey Dent into Two-Face.
We had a lot of fun ideas for the series overall, but in the end it was turned down. Regardless, these were fun a lot of fun to draw and Kate and I got to bond over our love of Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman.
“Williams’ character did not appear in the first Star Wars movie, but rather he made his debut in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. He also reprised his role as Lando Calrissian in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
In 1989, Billy Dee Williams played Harvey Dent in Tim Burton’s Batman movie. His character was initially set to become the villain Two Face in future films, but the Batman series wound up getting a new director after the second film, and the role was recast.“
