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

And if you mention this because of Spider-Man and Superman...people are saying the TAS-M 2 suit will look more like a classic look and Superman, well...I don't think Superman could pull off with red trousers in this modern age of CBMs.
1-I disagree that we won't see it again. Burton went the rubber route and many others followed. 2-I seriously doubt the speculation of an improved Spidey suit will be proven true, (is ANYONE involved in the prouction saying this or is it just the word on the street, like so many other times when we see set pics or early preview pics and fans say "It won't look like that in the movie" but then it does.) and 3-I'm not even a fan of trunks over the tights and I disagree that he can't pull it off. It's his look. It always has been. The trunks or lack thereof isn't even the biggest issue. Routh wore them and his suit sucked for numerous other reasons. It's a matter of construction/design.

May he finally find the peace that eluded him in life.
There is only ONE Spider-Man. His name is Peter Parker. He's an adult, and he's straight!
