In light of the imminent release of Zack Snyder's Director's Cut of Justice League in HBO MAX in the Spring of 2021, I created this shirt in order to commemorate another acclaimed Director's Cut of a movie that included characters whose stories have been publishing for over 80 years by the DC comics.
Just as was the case with Zack Snyder's "Justice League" in 2017, Joel Schumacher's 1995 "Batman Forever" was also heavily compromised in order to appeal to a wider audience. The original longer and darker in tone Schumacher cut, also known as "The Red Book Cut", was confirmed to exist in July 2020 in its entirety, while being considered lost for almost 15 years. Since the movie is considered at least a fan favorite cult classic in its "theatrical release" form, it should be released in its original version in order to honor the vision of the late Joel Schumacher, who passed in 2020.
And yes, the design was inspired by Seal's "Kiss from a rose" which was included in the "Batman Forever" soundtrack.
