A visual history of Batman’s big-screen villains

June 18th, 2012 by Rick Marshall · No Comments ·

We’re inching closer to the premiere of “The Dark Knight Rises,” the third and final film in Christopher Nolan’s big ol’ Bat-franchise, so I whipped up a fun little gallery of all the major villains Batman has fought on the big screen so far.

Consider it a visual history of Batman villains’ cinematic evolution if you’d like. I just think it’s a nice trip down memory lane…

Here’s an excerpt from the gallery:

Before he was Rocky’s trainer, Burgess Meredith played the umbrella-wielding villain known as The Penguin in the feature-length film based on the Batman television series.

You can peruse the rest of the gallery over at Fandango.com.

Oh, and if you have a few more minutes, be sure to watch the trailer for the 1966 movie based on the campy “Batman” television series. They don’t make trailers like this anymore, but they totally should:
