New Images Showing Off The Noir Art Direction For ‘Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One’!

We got brand new images showing off the noir art style that Warner Bros. Entertainment wanted to go with for Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One!

Here’s what Supervising Producer Butch Lukic had to say about the art direction for the movie:

“I wanted to give the film a timeless look, kind of like the book, where you can’t pinpoint the actual time period,” said Lukic, who cited 1940s crime films and The Godfather as further inspiration for the film’s stylish, nuanced art direction. “I really set out to make Gotham City a character onto itself. All the backgrounds were thought out to have a look or feel of classic cinematography. I even shadowed most of the backgrounds myself to get the right style of lighting needed for particular scenes, and to give the film that classic noir look.”

Check out these awesome images for the film:

Chasing Catwoman across the skyline of Gotham City, Batman leaps from one building to another – perfectly framed by the full moon – in this scene from Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One.
Deep shadows and a dark, haunting color palette go beyond the dialogue to inform the scenes in Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One, and this is particularly noticeable in this image featuring Bruce Wayne meeting with Carmine Falcone in The Roman’s office.   
 
Wayne Manor offers an even more ominous appearance in Supervising Producer Butch Lukic’s vision of Bruce Wayne’s stately home in Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One.
 
Butch Lukic’s art direction shines throughout Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One, particularly in his use of shadows and lighting – as evidenced by this image of Catwoman (and her shadow) sprinting across a Gotham City rooftop.

I’m happy that they went with the noir direction. Looking at what we’ve seen already for Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One, it definitely gives off early Bruce Timm’s Batman: The Animated series vibes, and that’s exactly what I want for Batman content. Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One & Two sure is going all out that’s for sure.

Here’s the synopsis for Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One:

Inspired by the iconic mid-1990s DC story from Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale, Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One begins as a brutal murder on Halloween prompts Gotham’s young vigilante, the Batman, to form a pact with the city’s only two uncorrupt lawmen – Police Captain James Gordan and District Attorney Harvey Dent – in order to take down The Roman, head of the notorious and powerful Falcone Crime Family. But when more deaths occur on Thanksgiving and Christmas, it becomes clear that instead of ordinary gang violence, they’re also dealing with a serial killer – the identity of whom, with each conflicting clue, grows harder to discern. Few cases have ever tested the wits of the World’s Greatest Detective like the mystery behind the Holiday Killer.

Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One will be available Digital and Blu-ray on June 22, 2021.
