First - I think that picture proves exactly the opposite.
Second - No-one is seriously suggesting this for the next movie.

Cool.
Can't wait to see it in action.

Adam West's costume looks silly for a couple of easily remedied reasons. Firstly, the oval is stuck over the solar plexus rather than the sternum, making the torso look weirdly foreshortened. Secondly, the cowl was insufficiently sculpted, with detail painted on and soft ears.

It's rather frustrating because it was fairly close to a decent depiction of the Silver Age Batsuit. I think Robin's costume did its job pretty well, and most of the villains looked great. Remember that the modern, green-suited Riddler costume comes from Frank Gorshin's.

Very cool atempt to "bad-ass" the Adam West suit! No question about Batman's mobility in that suit.

a mix of New 52 & Batman Inc. suit would be pretty badass:

I agree till I saw your yellow oval comment.... May I ask why? Only reason because I'm not a fan of it and can't see how a yellow oval will scare of the thugs of Gotham..

Nothing on Batman's suit would, in isolation, scare anyone. The mask and cape are the only elements which are in themselves possessed of any kind of foreboding connotation. The mounted symbol is no less 'scary' than the plain black splat, but it does have advantages as a distinct and recognisable icon.

The Adam West suit actually looks kinda badass... Obviously its just because Bruce is huge and menacing in that picture, but still it looks kinda cool.

I like the new 52 suit, but I'd make a few modifications on the belt, I'd like a Jim Lee style cowl too

For Batman I didn't change the New 52 look much I just feel adding some black in the belt ties the uniform together. I picture the material being similar to the Arkham Games a bodysuit with a mesh layer, design to take impacts, with a tough looking fabric covering it. The cowl, gloves, and boots are more armored thicker. For symbol I could go either way. I prefer the one on the left but the others do add nice contrast.


For robin I picture the same thing in terms of material as Batman but leaner and more acrobatic. I love the idea of Robin having a hood, though he wouldn't wear it much, I see it as an optional feature the he only wears when it's cold, raining, wants to look more intimidating, or if he's near someone who might recognize him.
They are beautiful, my favourites are the first Batman and the first Robin

All those seams keep me from loving Batman's costume. Robin, on the other hand, looks great. I love the hood.

i miss the yellow oval. first time i was introduced to Batman and became a fan, he had the yellow oval so i guess it's more nostalgia than nothing.

but also, it would be nice to see a change from the suit used in the Nolan films

Okay I'll give you the points because of nostalgia.

Maybe start with the yellow oval then move onto the black bat in the squeals? or the other way around?

I think I'd accept that idea.

i like them both, but the oval-less bat makes no damn sense. it has no reason to exist on any costume.

I grew up with it in the Burton films, BF and TAS. For that reason, I will always have a preference for it.

If Batman decided to wear a symbol, the reason would probably be that he wanted it to be seen and recognised. An eye-catchingly stylised bat mounted on a bright background is much more rational than an abstract black splat on a black (or dark grey) suit.

One of the things I love about these Adam West re-styles, is that the cape length cleary shows the scalloped bottom, and the scalloping is more pronounced. Never cared for a length that has the cape bunched up on the ground at Batman's feet.
Also the "material" of the suit's body is thicker than the tights West wore, giving an impression of durability.
And damn....removing the lines on the nose bridge and eyebrows, makes the cowl just about perfect.

I like to think that oval or not, Batman instantly instills fear because he pops out of nowhere, as while your eyes try to adjust to the reality of him being a man in an elaborate suit, for a split-second you actually believe it's a six-foot humanoid bat thing giving you the death glare.

I love the pic in post #48, but would like to see a smaller black bat insignia like in the early comics. Also, the belt could be a bit narrower with wider cylinders closer together.

The cowl is awesome!
