Burtons in the Belfry

This happened to catch my attention for a moment as my gaze drifted across the sky a few nights ago. It seemed like a nice promotional shot, but I didn’t immediately know what it was for. Then I realised that it was Penguin from the new “Gotham” show.

There’s a sense of skewed symmetry in the fact that the character whose last prominent appearance in live media was brought about by Tim Burton now looks like the very image of a stereotypical Burton protagonist.
