Christian Bale. George Clooney. Val Kilmer. Michael Keaton. Adam West. Among this group there is an international action star, a triple threat whose been nominated for Oscars in directing, writing and acting, a suave chameleon of a performer, one of the biggest stars of the 1980s, and a quintessential camp luminary. Despite their differences, these five men form a very exclusive fraternity, as they have all played Bruce Wayne in the flesh in the movies.
Inspired by such films as Batman: The Movie, Batman Returns, Batman Forever, Batman & Robin, and Batman Begins, Redditor morphinapg created a composite of what Bruce Wayne, the millionaire with a double life, might look like in real life. Check it out below, thanks to a tip from io9:
As someone who has whiled away countless hours in Photoshop for work and play, I confess I am deeply impressed by this composite. Sure, there are some weird shadows on his shirt and on the right side of his neck, but the stitching is overall smooth and subtle. There's none of the overt airbrushing that makes people in many movie posters look like pore-less plastic dolls. Basically, this Bruce Wayne looks like he could exist.
Most impressive, you can recognize a bit of Clooney, Keaton, Kilmer, Bale and West, even though you might struggle to put your finger on which parts are theirs. My only real complaint is that after so many incarnations of Batman, couldn't we get a better head of hair than this? Still, it's a striking image. Now, to make this man complete—in a kind of Weird Science way—all you'd need is a sound clip of longtime Barman voice actor Kevin Conroy, and you'd be all set.
