Default Ideas for the new costume in the Batman reboot

I say suit because Bale's Batman has been defined by his armor, and restricted in fighting because of the costume.

I think Batman needs to be light and flexible in the reboot; he needs to be able to perform acts of espionage and be able to out-fight the criminals. I'm not suggesting a return to the literal tights of the comics; I'm just suggesting soft modern materials, all black, and utilitarian in design.

Batman's technology needs to get away from the grappling hook and ninja arm bracers.

The gloves and the shoes could feature a glue like technology similar to the gloves in Mission Impossible 4; supplying Batman with an ability that was formerly Spider-Man's territory.



The mask should cover the entire face and thus protect the entire face. My personal preference for design would be similar to the Kroenen mask in the image below, but with a sculpted mouth and chin. I think the mask should refelct that the idea that this is a Bat-man.




The ears/horns are an issue of their own. I might prefer short horns like Miller's Dark Knight, but long or short, I don't want to see them curved inward like cat ears again.

Ew, no thanks. I'll takes nolan's batman over most the stuff you mentioned any day.

I want something like this in the reboot:

Ill rather stick to the armor suit that nolan introduced. Just abit more tech in the lenses of the eyes, they used the whole sonar thing in TDK but it would be nice to see some tech like how the iron man uses his scanning of enemies, infrared, scope... stuff like that.

I think something similar to Cap's suit in The Avengers could work.

I just want a Batsuit that's not as busy as Nolan's armors have become with the sequels (seriously, I still like the Begins suit the best of all three of these films). And the further we stay away from sculpted anatomy the better - IMO that joke wore itself out by the end of the first Burton movie, and even he knew it by the time he did Returns.

That said, I wouldn't mind a more "Earth One"- or "New 52"-looking Batsuit.

Exactly what I was thinking. It may be the best way to go.

I also think that suit would work well in seperating this reboot from the Nolan and Burton/Schumacer series. The only changes I would prefer would be the yellow ensigna and ditching the undies as Rowsdower suggested.

I still think this would probably the most ideal. Make it black and grey, add a cowl, cape and the Bat Symbol and you go a badass Batman Suit. And definitely keep the belt, it looks like you could actually fit something into those pouches.

Why ditched the undies? It should close to the orginal suit. Plus look at Manof Steel's suit....it sucks.

If Superman can't have the trunks, neither can Batman.

I usually don't care for small ears on the cowl, but that looks quite animalistic and I like it.

Black or Gunmetal Grey
Armoured like the main comic costume
Black cape on the outside, dark grey on the inside like TNBA cartoon
Dark Belt like Earth One

That is all

Hell no to the comics costume.

Even Cavill's Superman suit ditched the underwear and went for a more realistic look.


Batman can't go back to looking like a campy comicbook character.

I agree with Rockstar on this one. In the vein that X-men First Class was able to make a functionality of the blue and yellow suits, the way Nolan's Bat has used armor and military-esque stuff for the suit, it needs to be made out of practicality and functionality. The thing about the previous suits is they all LOOKED rubber to me. Bales appears as if it would function in the real world. That being said I wouldn't be opposed to ditching the ALL BLACK, perhaps more gun metal-y colors or something but definitely needs to be pieced together like armor.

The Batman suit in Young Justice is perfect. It's got the grey, but it's a much darker grey, It's an armor that has the appearance of fabric.

Me too. Resurrect the yellow oval logo. I'd be perfectly happy with the Batman Inc Suit, ... i have no idea how it would look on film, but it sure looks damn good in Arkham City.

Something with the design of the Begins suit, the slim design of the Knight suit, and some of the design and fabric of Cap's Avengers suit.
