Batman ’89, written by Hamm with art by Joe Quinones, will continue the story of Bruce Wayne as he appears in the world of the hugely influential Tim Burton-directed Batman movies. Among other things, that means the comic series will reintroduce Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman/Selina Kyle and reincorporate the version of Harvey Dent, played in the movie by Billy Dee Williams, whose eventual transformation into Two-Face didn’t make it into Batman Returns. 

Hamm was a co-writer of the screenplay for Burton’s Batman and received a story credit on Batman Returns, so it makes sense that the story of the comic will look to borrow ideas that didn’t make it into those movies, including the first look at what this particular Gotham’s Robin might look like. But there is a possible precedent for opening things up further, since this isn’t the first crack at Keaton-as-Batman Quinones has taken: In 2016, the artist shared some pieces on his blog from a version of Batman ’89 that he pitched with Kate Leth that he says DC turned down at the time, including images of Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, and Williams as Two-Face.
