Batman & Catwoman Fan Art Parodies Back to the Future

Batman and Catwoman feature in a Back to the Future fan art titled “Back to Gotham.” The Batman has become a phenomenon ever since its release just a week ago, receiving many plaudits and positive reviews from critics and audiences alike. Matt Reeves’ film has dominated the box office, earning back double of its original budget in just a week, grossing around $296 million. This means the latest Caped Crusader film is DC’s highest opening weekend box office hit since Suicide Squad back in 2016, with more projections suggesting that the film will double its numbers in the upcoming weeks.

One of the best aspects of the film includes the main characters Batman and Catwoman, played by Robert Pattinson and Zoë Kravitz. The two stars have been heavily praised for their hard work playing the iconic characters, especially Pattinson, who initially received backlash when announced he would replace Ben Affleck for the role. Despite the criticism, it was revealed that Reeves had written The Batman‘s script with Pattinson in mind, meaning that he was always the original choice. Kravitz also got a lot of attention, being celebrated by past Catwoman actresses such as Anne Hathaway, Halle Berry, and even Michelle Pfeiffer.

A recent upload by Zascanauta shows The Batman‘s main duo in a Back to the Future mashup. The art mirrors the famous Back to the Future poster, with Batman and Catwoman replacing Marty McFly and Doc Brown. The fan art also replaces the DeLorean with the Batmobile, with the title “Back to Gotham” being written in the Back to the Future font. The artwork can also be bought as a t-shirt at @riptapparel.

The Batman and Back to the Future crossover fan art has an excellent design that mixes the classic retro look of the 1985 film with the gritty Caped Crusader. Much like Marty McFly and Doc Brown’s iconic friendship, Batman and Catwoman have always had a memorable dynamic in both the films and the comics. The Batman’s version of this dynamic gets the relationship right, with Pattinson’s Batman and Kravitz’s Catwoman constantly challenging each other to do better and learn from each other, rather than just being an on-and-off partnership.

It’s not surprising that The Batman‘s immense popularity has got audiences creating fan art, mixing the film with other pop culture hits like Back to the Future. Reeves’ film dissociates from the usual superhero film formula, instead coming across more as a “neo-noir” movie. The film’s ending leaves the door open for a potential continuation for Pattinson’s version of the Dark Knight, so it’s possible he could reunite with Kravitz’s Catwoman if The Batman 2 happens.
