Over the seventy years of Batman films, the characters of both Batman and the villain Joker are interpreted in very different and distinct ways. Each character was compared to the original comic book interpretation of original creator Bob Kane. As the films moved towards a dark tone, the truer the character are to the original design. The movies also present undertones for cultural issues that are present at the film's release. These undertones include fear of the possible invasion of the Japanese in the 1943 film and the tension of the Cold War during the 1966 film.
