That would the real world's Batman: Christopher Hitchens. An intellectual badass with a vast knowledge and indomitable will that strikes fear into the hearts of his opponents (in debates) and fights injustice wherever it arises.

At least he was. He is dead now.

I don't know why,but his expression always makes me read your posts as if they were being said in a disgusted tone.
That's the idea.

Now, in terms of what the filmmakers will do, I agree. They probably wont go with the trunks, and honestly, I don't really care if they do or don't. However, my point is that it's silly to try and argue any reason for the trunks not to be included, since they're no more ridiculous than any other detail on Batman's outfit. I think trying to argue that is almost as silly as the people who said it would be "unrealistic" for the Joker to wear purple in TDK during the insane days of the perma-white debate.

Trying to justify why or why not the trunks shouldn't be included is pointless really, since Batman's entire outfit is ridiculous, and trying to justify any part of it is silly. It really just comes down to what people think looks good or doesn't. And that is the entire reason for any aesthetic part of Batman's costume. An artist thought it would look cool.
But would it not seem at least inconsistent in the context of this universe for Batman to wear trunks?
