What indication is there that the New 52 suit is rubber? Armor doesn't have to be rubber. The main reason they even use rubber in the movies is because it's a middle ground between flexibility and substantiality, and it's not usually acknowledged as being rubber, since plain old rubber isn't exactly body armor material anyway.

In the real world, there's no material that has both flexibility and a level of durability that Batman's suit usually has. Real world body armor is bulky and doesn't work nearly as well as Batman's.
