I saw someone in the previous thread say "A fully armored suit makes sense in a hyper realistic setting." Like I said before, even if you want to throw the realism card, it still makes more sense for him to wear fabric that offers the same level of protection armor does without weighting him down and letting him blend better in the shadows. The fabric suit could have worked in Nolan's universe too IMO.
You are right, and this goes to the nature of what Batman should be able to do. Defenders of the heavy rubber armour seemingly want him just to waddle around, throwing slow punches as goons wait patiently to be hit. Okay, it might be easier to believe that he can survive a tank shell, but is that Batman is about? What if he needs to leap over those goons heads? What happens if his escape route requires him to swim?

Worried they might cast a black man as your favourite superhero? :(
