Leaked Batman logo intrigues fans

WB Montreal has been teasing a (currently unannounced) new Batman game for a few weeks, and now two new images have emerged on Twitter, appearing to show a brand new bat symbol inside the studio’s HQ.

The bat symbol has undergone several transformations since the caped crusader first graced the cover of Detective Comics in 1939 – some more dramatic than others. Non-fans might not bat an eyelid at the new logo, shared by games reporter James Sigfield on Twitter (below). It’s just a silhouette of a bat, same as ever, right? Not so fast – logo design is a complicated business (although our guide to logo design certainly simplifies things). 

So is this possible new logo any different? To help you tell one bat from another, Reddit user rdgxxx recently shared a fascinating look at the evolution of the symbol from 1940-2012 (below).

While the logo in Sigfield’s tweet doesn’t completely match any of these iterations, it perhaps most closely resembles the one for 1999’s Batman Beyond (compare them below). The head and wings in this new version are rounder, though. One thing’s for sure – it’s a departure from the logo for the recent Arkham game series. We’re pleased to see a return to an all-black design, without the rather obvious ‘Batman’ splashed across the wings (we get it, guys).
