Batman fan art sees Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle parody the iconic cover of My Chemical Romance’s second album, Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge.
A fan art for The Batman inserts Robert Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne and Zoë Kravitz’s Selina Kyle into the cover of My Chemical Romance’s second album, Three cheers for sweet revenge. Matt Reeves’ reinterpretation of the Batman mythos was recently released, after numerous delays, to widespread critical acclaim and an impressive box office take as fans hailed it as potentially the best Batman movie to come. this day. With overwhelmingly positive reception and strong box office receipts, it looks like this new take on the Caped Crusader is here to stay with fans eagerly speculating on the villains and storylines that await Pattinson’s Batman in the future. suites.
A notable element of the film’s aesthetic was the use of licensed music, particularly Nirvana’s track “Something in the Way” as part of their album, It does not matter. The melancholic and rhythmic mix matches this darker take on the character and served as an immediate tone through its incorporation in trailers alongside Michael Giacchino’s orchestrations. The song then features in two significant moments in the film itself, playing in the first and third acts as a signifier of the beginning and end of Bruce Wayne’s character arc.
Artist, Lauren Moran, has created a beautiful addition to the world of fan art for The Batman which sees Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle parodying the My Chemical Romance album cover Three cheers for sweet revenge. The poster faithfully recreates the overall cover layout of this particular album, which was a painting by band member Gerard Way, called demolition lovers, which was intended to depict Bonnie and Clyde, with two bloodstained lovers finding solace in each other. This piece features Pattinson’s Bruce and Kravitz’s Selina, costumeless under a monochrome filter with vibrant crimson blood splattering across each other’s faces as they are caught in a moment of attraction.

The piece is a fitting blend of the two elements as the styles of My Chemical Romance are very much in keeping with the Nirvana alternative rock music that the film features heavily. The BatmanThe use of licensed music follows a trend that comic book movies have leaned heavily into over the past decade by not only using licensed tracks, but integrating them into the story and themes of the film. This was undoubtedly started in James Gunn guardians of the galaxy in which Peter Quill’s mixtape of 70s hit songs was the only thing that connected him to his late mother and signified his state of mind of being stuck in the past while finding strength and solace in the music he she shared with him. This mindset has since been adopted in later comic book properties, such as with Led Zepplin’s “Immigrant Song” being tied to Thor’s personal growth in Thor Ragnarokor “Daydream Believer” by The Monkees being the perfect summary of by WandaVision story.
Going forward, it’s unclear whether the series launched by The Batman will continue to use the same type of music in the same way. As mentioned earlier, “Something in the Way” wasn’t just a marketing tool, but featured at two significant points in the film, with the song even being used diegetically when Bruce listens to it in the Batcave. It would make sense for a similar genre of music to feature in the sequel, even if it’s nothing from Nirvana, since that style was integral to the film’s genetic makeup. In that sense, maybe this fan art already offers the next killer needle drop for batman 2.
