Don't worry, Chris, they'll never make a BP movie.
But seriously, costume alterations were around about a decade before Batman (Jor-El, Lex Luthor, Zod and co.), and blaming Batman for them seems a little silly. To also say that that era of tight-wearing heroes is "over" is a little premature, and needlessly pessimistic.
