If you’re like me and you’re unable to make the trip to the MCM London Comic-Con, I’ll provide an update as soon as those images become available. The first couple images on the below link are from this exhibition…

However this isn’t the first time that Warner Brothers has given artists/ celebrities an opportunity to redesign Batman’s iconic cape & cowl. They did something similar in 2014, in honor of Batman’s 75th anniversary. The redesigned interpretations of the iconic cape & cowl were on display as a part of the Cape/Cowl/Create Batman exhibit at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con.
