This video is a few years old (from 2008), but in honor of today's release of the new Dark Knight Rises trailer, I figure it's appropriate. In this video, watch how the classic Batman icon changes from its early comic book days through the TV shows, movies and other series of products. Depending on the theme, the Batman icon gets rounder or flatter, and definitely more simplified than the originals. Turn down the sound if you don't want to hear the U2 song from the Val Kilmer film (::shudder::).
