Opening titles to the blockbuster fantasy action drama thriller Batman (1989), a slightly more psychologically unhinged take on the D.C. Comics superhero. Here we are given Danny Elfman's bombastic and operatic signature theme, whilewe are taken round some dark, shadowy images before the whole picture is revealed to be an all black version of the iconic Batman symbol. The initially obscured image mirrors the hero's nature to stay in darkness both literally as a tool during conflict, and metaphorically given the moral knife edge of his vigilante activities. The notable change to a black icon, also helps disperse the audience's expectations in line with the previous camp incarnations of the hero, though the yellow symbol does still remain on the costume. No copyright infringement intended. To be removed at the behest of the distributor.
