Re: The Batsuit Thread - Part 2
While I don't think a rubber suit is necessary, I don't think that plain spandex or cloth whatever really looks good. A little rubber enhancing a la Man of Steel (although not to that extent) wouldn't go amiss, since plain cloth suits seems to be really slimming, which would step Batman looking particularly intimidating. Chris Reeve was a massive guy, but his suit detracted from that. I would prefer a slightly chunkier military-esque fabric, but not so heavy that it would make you wonder how he manages to be so agile.
