Well, the title is pretty self explanatory to be fair.
Fans already knew what the new Bat Symbol looked like, after previews of Robert Pattinson’s Batsuit were screened, showing the bat symbol on the suit.
This led to a raging debate about whether the bat symbol on the suit was made from the gun that killed Bruce Wane’s parents (dark, huh?!)
Here is that image of the Bat Symbol:
And here’s the new Trademark for the Bat Symbol (batman logo) Applied for by DC Comics yesterday.
Seems pretty spot on to me!
As you would expect, the trademark for the batsymbol is applied for for ALL manner of good stuff.
My personal favourites:
(1) Fanny Packs (cos nothing says badass Dark Knight like a fanny pack, am I right?)
(2) Sealing Wax (I mean, are you even a super hero if you don’t have your own branded sealing wax?!); and
(3) Gardening Gloves (hey, even super heroes have to tend to their Gardens, and Wayne Manor can look like a right kip if the Garden isn’t kept pristine)
