DC Teams With City Of Burbank To Unveil Larger-Than-Life Batman Statue

by Outsiders
November 21, 2020
Today, the World’s Greatest Detective arrived in Burbank, California, in the form of a colossal Batman statue based on the critically acclaimed Batman: Hush character design by world-renowned artist, publisher, and chief creative officer of DC, Jim Lee.

Brought to life by Visit Burbank in partnership with DC, Lee’s celebrated design from his 2002 Batman run was reimagined in 3D form by digital sculptor, Alejandro Pereira Ezcurra, and expertly crafted in bronze by the skilled artisans at Burbank’s American Fine Arts Foundry and Fabrication. The final statue measures seven-and-a-half feet tall and weighs 600 pounds.

Batman first appeared in Detective Comics #27 on March 30, 1939, and has stood as a symbol of determination, bravery, and justice to generations of fans for over 80 years. He has influenced every area of modern entertainment, appearing in countless comic books, Saturday morning cartoons, multiple television series, video games, theme parks and experiences, toys, collectibles, and apparel and lifestyle products, as well as blockbuster animated and live-action films. Batman continues to be one of the most popular superheroes ever created—and, now, he is being commemorated in statue form by the City of Burbank.

The newly installed Batman statue can be viewed in the AMC Walkway of Downtown Burbank. Visitors are strongly advised to practice social distancing and wear a face mask.

The statue is stiff and lifeless. Comic designers are graphic designers and they don't see things in the round like classical artists so you can't judge it by these standards.

Yeah, It'snot overly dynamic (he's just standing there) but they were clearly going for aniconic and monolithic look so it works.

Also, comic artists and graphic designers are two different things. And a comic artist absolutely does seethings in the round. Here's a good example of Jim Lee explaining his thought process as he draws.

In their defense, Gotham doesn't exist.

Sure, but only since 2015.

Yes, but it's still where they're currently based, which is presumably why Visit Burbank wanted to make it.

I think it looks like an interpretation of Jim Lee's artwork which is what it's supposed to be.

I don't think they were trying for realism. It would be cool to see a realistic superhero sculpture. All the proportions and anatomy are greatly exaggerated bc that's what they want because that's what comic book art is.

The statue is stiff and lifeless. Comic designers are graphic designers and they don't see things in the round like classical artists so you can't judge it by these standards.

No, I'm expressing my opinion. If that's a problem for you two, I suggest you both make likespeed bumps and get over yourselves.

only one of me troll. and if you dont like how toys and statues are made, dont collect them. nobody wants to read cynical comments from a jaded bigoted old man that cant adapt to the 21st century. its 2020, 90% of all manufactured items utilize digital 3d sculpting at some point in the design process. so no, you were not "expressing your opinion",you were trolling.

I didntget the Burbank connection at first either.

No, I'm expressing my opinion. If that's a problem for you two, I suggest you both make likespeed bumps and get over yourselves.
