Re: Has Batman hurt the genre where costumes are concerned?
just a few things...
1) Of the failed superhero movies...none of them failed because of the costume. Did Superman Returns fail because of the costume or the story???
2)I think if a character has an Iconic costume then that costume should be used. There should be no reason we have to wait for the Avengers movie to see Cap in his 616 costume.
3)The only reason why we arent getting a more comics faithful Batsuit is because of the 60's Batman tv show. I dont mind an armored suit but it would have made the movie better for me if TDK featured the suit from the Arkham Asylum video game.

Clerk: "Sorry I am a Batman guy. Superman is cool but his weakness is a rock. That's weak."
Me: "Well, thrown hard enough a rock is Batman's weakness too."
You can't judge a film's screenplay until you read the screenplay.
