Default Re: Has Batman hurt the genre where costumes are concerned?

Within the context of TDK though the armoured/segmented is not just about the functionality, the aesthetics do invoke a medieval armour feel to it which makes perfect sense given the title for the film was The Dark Knight. And I think that's what Nolan wanted to invoke, that urban knight look, having those segmented pieces covered with some other cloth or whatever would lose that effect. It wasn't just done with the thinking 'let's make this look cool to sell toys', look to Batman and Robin for that kind of thinking.
