Film Skechr has new Batman & Robin article that contains an interview with conceptual illustrator, Tim Burgard. The images include a design for Uma Thurman's eco-terrorist, Poison Ivy, and storyboards with Bane, who was played by professional wrestler Jeep Swenson (died 2 months after the film was released). Here's an excerpt:
Maurice Mitchell: You have a design for Poison Ivy that is pretty different from the final film. Was it considered?
Tim Burgard: Because the costume department didn't release their costume designs to me for me to do my job I went ahead and did their job first. You can see from my boards that I decided to use Poison Ivy's original comic book costume, which was better than the film version in my opinion.

Chills and thrills: will Gotham City be put on ice? George Clooney is Batman as the dark knight battles his greatest threat yet: cold-hearted Mr. Freeze (Schwarzenegger) and venomous Poison Ivy (Thurman). Batman has more than Gotham City to protect: the youthful eagerness of crimefighting comrades Robin (O'Donnell) and Batgirl (Silversone) puts them frequently in harm's way.

Batman & Robin (1997) was directed by Joel Schumacher, from a script written by Akiva Goldsman. The film starred: Arnold Schwarzenegger as Dr. Victor Fries/Mr. Freeze, George Clooney as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Chris O'Donnell as Dick Grayson/Robin, Uma Thurman as Dr. Pamela Isley/Poison Ivy, Alicia Silverstone as Barbara Wilson/Batgirl, Michael Gough as Alfred Pennyworth, Pat Hingle as Commissioner James Gordon, Elle Macpherson as Julie Madison, Vivica A. Fox as Ms. B. Haven, and Vendela Kirsebom as Nora Fries.

That moment when the concept art Bane looks better than the Bane we got in the end.

Those aren't bad at all though. Hope we see Poison Ivy, Freeze and others in Afflecks Batman reboot.

freeze needs to be re-done, not fussed about seeing ivy again. Bane looks cool. shame he was so lame in the film

fake lips. That is all.

That Poison Ivy seems to be inspired by Lisa from Weird Science.

LOL @ how badass Bane looked in the storyboards

God how that movie sucked. Just to reiterate what I've said repeatedly, this movie cannot be used as an example for why the characters from the comic books don't work without changing them. Because Bane has NEVER been done right for the big screen, nor has Poison Ivy, The Joker, Catwoman, Penguin...

Lol see what happens when they look comic book acurate

The moment where concept art Bane looks better than either version to make it to the big screen.

This is a perfect example of how things look better on paper.

The damn storyboards look better than the entire movie, that's how pathetic it was.

Urgh, This is so much better than what actually happened.

I thought they did a good job with Ivy, she was hot as hell in this and I usually don't even like Uma.
