Legendary Batman Artist Norm Breyfogle Has Died

Norm Breyfogle Batman Artist Passed Away Age 58

The news has finally come out that legendary Batman artist Norm Breyfogle passed away this past Monday at age 58. Norm had suffered a stroke that left him unable to draw back in December 2014, which also left him understandably devastated and depressed. His exact cause of death has not yet been released. 

RELATED: Batman Comic Legend Norm Breyfogle In The Hospital

I wasn't a close friend of Norm's, but we did interact quite a bit over the years. He was a very opinionated and serious, but also gracious man to his fans. He was kind enough to help me with a lot of background information on the Batmobile that he designed (see below) when I was researching and writing the Batman's Arsenal book and would always take time out to interact. Norm would come and go from time to time online, sometimes getting very depressed and putting those emotions to words. He would each time recover and find a new fire to keep him going, but the loss of his artistic gift clearly took a very serious toll on him. 

Norm Breyfogle Batman Batmobile

Norm defined the Batman look for a generation in the late 1980s and early 1990s and will be always remembered by comic book fans for his numerous contributions to he legacy of the Dark Knight. Thank you for everything you gave fans of Batman and DC Comics. Rest in peace, we won't forget you.

Finally Revealed - Joaquin Phoenix In The Joker Movie Make-Up!

Joaquin Phoenix Joker Make-Up Test

It's the reveal we've all been waiting for Bat-Fans...Joaquin Phoenix in the iconic Joker make-up. This was revealed on Twitter first by Joker director Todd Phillips and then re-tweeted by Warner Brothers. We've included the footage below for you to check out. 

RELATED: Director Todd Phillips Reveals The Joker's Real Name

The look is very raw and since this is a screen test, the final make-up may go through more evolutions by the time the film is done. This does, however, give us an idea of how Phoenix is being handled. 

Joaquin Phoenix in Joker Make-Up

LOG Opinion Time: This reminds perhaps of how The Joker could have looked if the Batman movie that Michael Uslan was trying to get made in the late 1970s hadn't taken a decade to get onto the big screen. We haven't seen this thicker make-up style for some time...perhaps they were inspired by another evil movie clown by the name of "IT"?

The DC Extended Universe will have the following films releasing soon:
Aquaman (2018) release date: Dec 21, 2018
  • Shazam! (2019) release date: Apr 05, 2019
  • Joker (2019) release date: Oct 04, 2019
  • Wonder Woman 2 (2019) release date: Nov 01, 2019

The Batman Cartoon - Behind The Scenes - Exclusive Style Guide | Legions of Gotham

The Batman Cartoon Fansite - The Batman Matsuda 2004-2009
Behind the Scenes of The Batman Cartoon - The Batman Production Art

Legions of Gotham had the exclusive world premiere look at the style guide sheets that were used in the production for the cartoon The Batman. These were given to the artists and animators on the series as a reference tool. We premiered these back in 2008.

The guide centers largely around Jeff Matsuda's desire to give Batman's cape a very specific life in the cartoon. The Batman style guides detail exactly how Batman's cape should be draw and draped in various scenarios.

"I've said it before and I'll say it again - your site is amazing! I check out your forums every chance I get to read what fans think of our shows. You're doing a hell of a job for the Batman fans!"
- Brandon Vietti, Director: The Batman, Under the Red Hood and Writer on Young Justice
