The Funko Pop! Heroes: Batman 1989 – Joker with Hat 10″ Jumbo Sized Funko Pop! Vinyl Figure dropped today as a GameStop Exclusive!
Batman was released in 1989 and starred Michael Keaton as Batman and Jack Nicholson as the Joker. The hero is a landmark of pop culture, but the very film that helped him become one of the most important historical characters had problems and questions from many fans.
The story behind the 1989 Batman is full of doubts, uncertainties, and it only happened because of the courage of a young director and an actor who thought he would be unable to live Bruce Wayne.
Bring this Pop! vinyl figure of the Joker home, and you might be in for a surprise, too! You might be lucky enough to see the Joker cooking up a whole scheme…
The modern history of “Batman” in the movies began with Tim Burton’s signature: Michael Keaton played the hero, with the sarcasm and cruelty of the Joker being played by Jack Nicholson.
The modern history of superheroes began in 1978 with “Superman” played by Christopher Reeve. And The Joker universe – which is like saying: the world of Batman – is a whole chapter of that history.
Going back to the origins, let’s remember the 1989 “Batman.”
The Joker of 1989 had as much provocation as vertigo. This is like saying: in one of his most delirious and also most controlled compositions, Jack Nicholson lent the evil character, Batman’s eternal rival, a mixture of sarcasm and cruelty.
And, of course, it was no accident that outlaws were uneasy with the Batman stories being told in this context.
“I am Batman,” said the returning hero – after the TV series and movies of the 1960s, the first incarnation of Batman belonged to a somewhat unexpected but compelling actor: Michael Keaton.
And let’s not forget that among the achievements of this super-production was a fabulous collection of songs – the soundtrack happens to be signed by Prince.
The question remains to be asked. Who was it that brought all this talent together under the Warner label and gave it the consistency and impact of a great show?
Well, someone who in the ’80s had already directed things like “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure” and “Beetlejuice” and who had (and has) an innovative and experimental vision: Mr. Tim Burton.
Afterward, a lot has happened in the Batman universe, from the very good to the very bad, but let’s face it, the images from 1989 persist in our memory.
