They'll engage in fisticuffs until they realize they're fighting for the same cause. Typical mashup details.

^ That's what I wanted. All I wanted was a chance..a chance to make Batman powerful without making Superman look wimpy..

But apparently a big robo-costume is too ugly

The problem isn't that. The problem is how do you make Batman powerful to begin with? No matter what, Batman will always pale in comparison to Superman's physical abilities (even his intellect isn't enough to decrease the gap in physicality between the two).

I still believe the blue/grey suit rumor. By what Kevin Smith says, it seems like it's either blue & grey or at the very least grey and black.

Why are people against Batman having two suits in the movie? I dont think there is a universal consensus that it must NOT be armored. There are people who want armor and those who dont. Having a regular suit and an armor suit appeases both camps

But if both camps are happy, what would we fight about?

That being said, I like the idea of two suits.

Because it would be kind of pointless in a fight against Superman. Armor wouldn't help, and would more likely be a hindrance to him.

THIS! I'm sure we'll get a scene of Batman fighting random thugs in his regular costume to "sell the idea" of Ben as Batman.

We'll probably also see the scene of Batman in his regular armor in the Batcave, or when talking to Luthor (which will probably happen)

Having him build a special "Supesbuster" outfit would show an element of inventiveness, overconfidence, AND fear which would both look cool and humanize the Bat. And allow him to oppress Superman without making the Man of Steel look physically incapable.

He could use armoured suit against a villain not Superman. Since this Batman is wise one I don't think he will be that foolish.

Because two suits might remind people of Schumacher films.

Doesn't matter who he's fighting against. Armor just isn't what Batman is about.

Doesn't it still make him look incapable? A human puts on some armor and can battle with gods? I don't see how some metal suit can save batman from a man whose last battle took out buildings. Unless superman isn't even trying or is severely weakened.

On an unrelated note, I can't get the image of Ben Affleck running around his home shouting "I'M BATMAAAAAAAAAAAN" and posing in front of every mirror.

Exactly. Batman always is one step ahead.

Nope. He can't withstand a true super-beatdown, even if he's encased in metal. He'll have to find another strategy, like weakening superman or something.

It's based on comic book logic, though, the same suspension of disbelief that allows us to accept a number of absurdities, such as the DP Clark Kent disguise.

This makes no sense. That's saying that no one can do 2 suits because someone else ruined it. It assumes that there is no such thing as improvement.
