Here are some new posters / wallpapers that I did featuring Batman and Catwoman. I've got about three versions of this, so you can select the one that you like the most and download it.


And here are some other cool Batman & Catwoman posters from around the Web.... The artists behind the works below include Janditlev and nemafronspain:


On July 20th 2012, Warner Bros Studios will be releasing the third and final Batman movie from director Christopher Nolan, titled The Dark Knight Rises

Ever since the success of Marvel's The Avengers on May 4th 2012 [which is well on its way to becoming probably the 3rd highest grossing movie of all time with over 1 Billion dollars in gross profits around the world], other movie studio execs have been scrambling to find out how to duplicate the success that Marvel Studios experienced, thus sponsoring their creative directors and interns to head out and literally hunt down the next big blockbuster concept to be licensed, filmed and milked like a fat cash cow for all its worth.

Amidst all of that drama, I will say this: no great franchise rises overnight.  
The Avengers comic book series date back to the 1970s, so that concept has been silently building steam for over 30 years. Plus, the success of a project is commonly tied to great actors, who make the movie great. Robert Downey Jr. is one of the main reasons why Ironman was so successful. And he has a ton of other great actors / actresses that back him up on each comic related project. Anyone trying to duplicate the success of The Avengers without having strong roots is really wasting his/her time.

A lot of people don't realize that there was a weak/lame/garbage movie that came out back in 2007 called Red Line, which attempted to duplicate the success of the Fast and Furious franchise. Red Line had a poor plot and a host of low-grade actors, so it was already battling to stand up and gain respect right from the start. It cost about 26 million dollars to make, and it grossed about 6.5 million at the box office.... Not only did that movie flop, but the company that sponsored that hot-stinky-mess also went bankrupt shortly afterwards [due to a variety of reasons that I don't want to delve into right now].

Anyway the bottom line is this: it takes time, effort and a lot of inspiration to create a blockbuster franchise. Many were shocked by the success of the Hunger Games, yet I think the success of that movie was strongly linked to the popularity of the book - which proves that the Hunger Games was not an overnight success. Someone had to write it, pitch it, get it accepted, get it marketed and published, before movie studio execs ever stood up to take notice.... plus there was practically zero competition in the box office for about 3 weeks, letting the Hunger Games reign supreme in the month of March.... Had the Hunger Games come out just 1 week before The Avengers, it would have failed woefully. Thus, beyond having strong roots in diverse forms of media [books or comics], it should be noted that timing also plays a huge role in the success of any movie franchise.

Trending Question: So you may ask "Mr. Dsng Artist, what do you think about the timing G.I.Joe 2: Retaliation, which has recently been moved from June 29 2012 to March 29 2013?"

My Answer: Honestly guys, after the commercial failure of Battleship [a Hasbro franchise] in the USA, the execs at Hasbro are literally crapping in their pants.... they are the ones who probably prompted their hired movie distributor, Paramount  Studios, to shift G.I.Joe 2: Retaliation over to next year, lest they experience more heavy losses due to the current reign of The Avengers, and MIB3 - which is right around the corner. Plus Snow White and the Huntsman [starring Chris Hemsworth/Thor of The Avengers] is also destined to be a big hit on June 1st 2012. Paramount and Hasbro are the same big-time duo behind The Transformers movie franchise; and after seeing what toys can do on the big screen, Hasbro decided to attempt to make lightning strike twice, thus they converted their board-game Battleship into a worthless alien invasion movie. 

Truthfully, the Hasbro execs just got greedy, and now their 209-million-dollar-budget Battleship movie is not going to even gross half that amount before its tenure ends [it has currently made about 33 million in the USA]. And now, out of fear and panic, the Hasbro execs want to postpone the release of G.I.Joe 2 and shoot a host of new 3D scenes [I seriously think they just want to literally rewrite it, after noting that it was destined to be another hot-mess, with Channing Tatum/ Duke dying halfway through it]. If they truly do not release the new Joe movie in this year 2012 - after even creating a Superbowl Ad for it back in February - then I can guarantee you that the G.I.Joe 2 movie is not going to do well next year in 2013.... because the fans are not fools. They will be tired of the extended 9-month wait and they will move on to see other fresh 2013 projects, like perhaps Ironman3.
