Default Re: Ideas for the new costume in the Batman reboot

The issue isn't that gray can't look good. They could absolutely come up with a black and gray, or even blue and gray look that works.

The issue is contextual...why would Batman, in any realistic sense, color coordinate himself like that in the real world? He's, first and foremost, supposed to be a frightening creature of the night, hence the change to all black. Now, if they move away from that, and go back to the swashbuckling, slightly less dark version of Batman, I think blue and black or gray would be more palatable.
