You may not know the name Richard Alan Greenberg, but you sure as heck know his work. The prolific movie title designer has died at the age of 71.
Greenberg — who founded R/Greenberg Associates with his brother in 1977 — landed Richard Donner’s Superman with their first gig and never looked back. The iconic “streaking” credits (and the never topped “You Will Believe a Man Can Fly” teaser trailer) earned them the job of crafting Ridley Scott’s first Alien film.
Greenberg would go on to win a Best Visual Effects Oscar nomination for Predator in 1987, but that was just a drop in the bucket. Some of his other notable projects include Altered States, Ladyhawke, The, Untouchables, Death Becomes Her, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, the Lethal Weapon series, Independence Day, Good Fellas, Star Trek: Nemesis, and The Matrix.
Not too shabby.
Though some of his work can be seen on display at The Louvre and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the ethereal work on he has done on film with ensure his legacy will live on our hearts and minds (and sometimes nightmares) forever.
He will be missed.

10 Young Actors Who Could Replace Ben Affleck As Batman
After suiting up three times, rumors are suggesting that Ben Affleck will not play Batman in Matt Reeve’s upcoming solo film. Apparently, Reeve’s script focuses on a younger Batman instead of following a Caped Crusader who is already well-established into his crime-fighting career. Hopefully, whatever story Reeves has cooking up is worth the recast and will showcase this younger Batman kicking butt on a scale movie-goers have yet to see.
To replace Ben Affleck, DC is pivoting to a younger actor who could potentially be a part of the cinematic universe for years to come. Batman is likely the publisher’s most popular character, so they need to choose an actor who could be an imposing presence on their larger film library moving forward. Ben Affleck’s version of the character is certainly enjoyable, and the warehouse fight in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is likely Batman’s coolest battle on the big screen, but DC needs a younger, more lively Batman if they want their films to match Marvel Studios.
