If you are a kid of the 90s, there is a high chance that you are familiar with Batman: The Animated Series, regarded as one of the best comic book adaptations ever crafted. To this day, fans continue to voice actors from the show, such as Mark Hamill, to reprise their characters once again.
A fan named Simon took it a step further in October 2018, with his recreations of what Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight movie posters will look like if they were done in the style of the classic Batman: The Animated Series.
I re-created some of the Dark Knight trilogy movie posters in the Batman Animated Series style. I think @RealKevinConroy’s Batman and Mark Hamill’s Joker look better than their live-action counterparts in my humble opinion ?? pic.twitter.com/ZfGza6oVva

Batman fans have stepped forward to heap praises onto Simon and his works of art, with one saying that this (the reimagined version) is the Dark Knight movie they want to watch.
That is the Dark Knight movie that i would want to watch ?

I'll never get tired of Batman and Superman Animated Series fan art. Great work, Simon. This is awesome.

Simon has since gone on to recreate other Batman series into the style of the animated classic. Including, but not limited to, Lego Batman: The Video Game, Rocksteady’s Batman Arkham games, and the Batman Noel graphic novel.
My latest Batman game cover re-creation. Lego Batman – BTAS style! ? I really had a lot of fun creating this one since it’s a drastic change in the character proportions. And it’s just a fun image overall! ?? pic.twitter.com/CXLl7veIWd

Just in case you missed them, here are the three @RocksteadyGames Arkham game covers I re-created in the BTAS style. ??? Really loved creating these mashups of my two favourite versions of Batman. pic.twitter.com/D098aNF5pH

I’m feeling festive, so I re-drew the cover of Batman Noël in the Batman Animated Series style! ?? I absolutely ADORE Lee Bermejo’s art, but I can’t deny how cool @RealKevinConroy Batman looks in this pose ? pic.twitter.com/4LyriCMuFf
