Rejected ‘Batman ’89’ comic would’ve picked up where Burton left off

by  in Comic News Comment

Amid the success of Batman ’66, Joe Quinones and Kate Leth had hoped to revisit another fondly remembered era from the Dark Knight’s on-screen past in Batman ’89. Alas, DC Comics passed on their miniseries pitch.

However, Quinones has shared some details and proof-of-concept art from the proposal that will undoubtedly make fans of the Tim Burton films sigh over what might’ve been — including a depiction of Billy Dee Williams as Two-Face.

“Our story would have picked up the threads left by Tim Burton’s Batman Returns,” Quinones explains on his blog. “We would have seen the return of Selina Kyle/ Catwoman as well as introductions to ‘Burton-verse’ versions of Robin, Barbara Gordon/Batgirl, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy. It also would have showcased the turn of Billy Dee Williams’ Harvey Dent into Two-Face.”
