That's the kind of aesthetic that produced Harley Quinn, and it's worth noting that she was created almost by accident. When she first appears in "Joker's Favor," it's as a one-note joke, a gag character designed to set up the twist of the episode, that the Joker hounds and stalks and threatens this poor nobody over the course of years so that he can open a door as part of a larger scheme. Keep that in mind, too, because the secret of that episode is that it's also Harley Quinn's entire story in miniature.

Now there's Australian Batman Zac Mihajlovic, who rides around in a customized Batmobile built to replicate the one from Tim Burton's 1989 'Batman' film -- but this isn't just any Batmobile replica or any Batman impersonator. This vehicle is perfectly street-legal, and this Batman uses his persona to spread cheer to sick kids.
A few weeks back, we heard that Ryan Gosling went in to meet about a possible role in WB's 'Suicide Squad' film, but it wasn't clear which role that might have been, as details about which characters might be featured in the movie are still a mystery. According to the latest report, Jared Leto is now up for that role -- and that role could very well be The Joker, Batman's longtime nemesis.
FOX Batman prequel 'Gotham' has well-established its precedent that the iconic Bat-characters of DC comics won't don their colorful costumes just yet, but they still have faces! In some cases, more than one! See what Nicholas D'Agosto's face looks like as Harvey Dent in the first official 'Gotham' photos of a pre-face Two-Face!
Even the most passionate critics of 'Man of Steel' tend to agree that Hans Zimmer's bombastic and emotional score is a highlight of the film, so it wasn't surprising at all when he was invited back to score 'Batman vs. Superman.'
