The Many Inspirations For Every Onscreen Portrayal Of Gotham City

Gotham City isn't just a location on a map; it's a character as rich and storied as the Dark Knight himself. Through the decades, Gotham has evolved and transformed to reflect the different eras and artistic tastes of comic book creators. It's always been plagued by villains, but you can feel the unique quirks and differences between the Gothams of different eras. 

The variations in Gotham's aesthetics are perhaps most distinct in the many onscreen adaptations of Batman, where filmmakers' various styles have a massive influence on the city's appearance. Joel Schumacher's films are filled with as much pop and color as a comic book, while Nolan's gritty Gotham feels like a real city in our own world. Take a journey through the many iterations of Gotham, and learn what inspired them all.
