Reimagined The Batman Trailer Brings 60s TV Show to The Big Screen

Posted 2022/04/25 6 0


The internet is the original home of “what if” scenarios, and the Corridor Crew has been doing their magic on the trailer for The Batman on their YouTube channel to bring the Dark Knight’s past into the present in spectacular fashion. Known for their many VFX videos that have made the MCU and other family franchises R-rated and their visual effect breakdowns, the Corridor Crew has now unleashed an amazing crossover trailer that brings the stars of the 60s Batman TV series into The Batman’s gritty trailer.

With the exception of Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle, all of the other stars of the trailer are seen as their 60s TV counterparts, including Adam West as Batman, Frank Gorshin as Riddler and Burgess Meredith as Penguin. Just for good measure, the reimagined trailer also features Burt Ward’s Robin, the Batcopter and the TV show’s version of the Batmobile, all seamlessly incorporated into the real world of The Batman. Check out their incredible work below.

While the video itself is an impressive feat, taking a week for the team to complete, it is even better that you can watch the entire process from start to finish in the video to see just how the new trailer was created using some fairly readily available pieces of software for anyone thinking of dipping into the trailer recreation market themselves. All in all, this is a brilliantly funny take on The Batman’s very serious tone as it incorporates the version of the character that was the least serious of his screen outings.

The Batman Could Not Be Further From the 60s TV Show in Tone

It is sometimes hard to believe that the many screen iterations of Batman have all come from that one character created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger back in 1939. Although the character has changed throughout his comic book appearances, they pale in significance against the polar opposite adaptations of The Batman and the 1960s TV show.

While most of the Dark Knight’s big-screen outings have been suitably bleak and dark, with the exception of Batman & Robin and potentially Batman Forever, which also strayed from the dark fantasy of Tim Burton’s Gotham City, the TV series was a completely different kettle of fish. From the bright colors, to the bad puns and the on-screen text announcing every punch and slap in a true comic book fashion, the series managed to give Batman an image as a campy, comedy character for kids that also sat well with the old cliffhanger series of the 30s and 40s. Even when the likes of Batman: The Animated Series arrived, it was much darker and serious than the live-action series that came almost 30 years earlier.

Since then, which is around the time Tim Burton had brought his gothic version of Batman to cinemas, newer iterations of Gotham’s defender have brought more serious and grounded versions of the DC hero to life, with Christian Bale in the Dark Knight trilogy and now Robert Pattinson in The Batman, the most stripped back version of Batman ever put on the big screen.
