From the latest blockbuster superhero movie Guardians of the Galaxy over the weekend, to one of the most influential comic book adaptations to hit cinema screens, 1989's Batman, directed by Tim Burton and starring Michael Keaton as the titular Batman and Jack Nicholson as his arch-enemy 'The Joker'.
Whilst Cesar Romero certainly made the white-faced, green-haired Joker memorable in the campy 1960's Batman TV series and movie, Jack Nicholson elevated the smiling villain to a whole different sinister level, bringing his crazy credentials from such films as The Shining and One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest (and his wacky colour clash dress sense obviously helped).
Bob Ringwood was responsible for Batman's big screen Hollywood makeover (along with the other costume designs in the movie), giving him the dark armoured latex look over the Caped Crusader's familiar blue and grey tights comic book and 60's TV show look.
If you're a fan of the 1989 movie, be sure to also check out the Batmobile that featured in Batman, plus stick around in the days to come to see all the other Bat-suits which followed this iconic version in the later 90's films and Christopher Nolan trilogy.
And remember, "If you gotta go...Go with a smile!".
