The shuriken concept makes much more sense, looks better, and is a nice homage to his ninja roots.
He should have a variety of sizes for different purposes. Larger ones for stunning would be blunt rather than bladed.

There's no way to really know without measuring the padding itself, but I don't think ANY padding in a Superhero suit since Spider-Man has done much to add THAT much apparent size to the actor. I guess the padding would range from a few millimetres to half and inch in thickness at most to add definition, and Affleck's is probably the same.

What I'm really curious about is whether we'll see whatever armour his Batman is wearing under the cloth at all? I'm assuming it'll look something like the unpainted Begins suit, but with all the forms being anatomically correct.

Yea I've been wondering about the armour too? The suit he's wearing in the pic doesn't look like it offers any great protection,but I could be wrong though. There were rumors that he would have a second suit though, maybe that suit has ALL types of armour.

Batarangs are so named because when thrown they return to Batman...... like their name sake boomerang does.....this was crucial to throwing lines/ropes and having them wrap around poles etc...... as the batarang carried thru it's returning arc the line would be restrained by the pole or what have you and the batarang would spin around the restraining structure wrapping and securing the line. Seems like with the grapple gun that function certainly is obsolete.

I agree and the shuriken concept is now the function of the "throwing" non-returning bat-things....but that also gives obsolesence to the term batarang......

The Year One Batarangs are awesome, and I think they'd translate really well to live action.

I'm just thinking that there's something UNDER the cloth that's meant to be more than just a human body, because the shape of the pectorals is clearly unnatural.

A real boomerang is a throwing stick, and the "coming back" aspect of them is just a novelty trick that never played any part in their practical use.

Sure, the term "to boomerang" has come to mean to come back, but real boomerangs are just things you throw at a target to stun/hurt them. They don't come back in that context. Once they hit something, the returning path is ended. Plus, a returning boomerang takes a huge, indirect path that would be really useless in combat situations.

So a batarang doesn't have to return for it to legitimately be called a batarang.

I actually like the old bat-bolas. They're real old-school, and I doubt Batman would carry them now, with all the new, cutting edge tech he has. But I always liked seeing him throw a bola at an escaping enemy's legs, tripping him up.

Remember the blow-pipe from Year One? Would love to see Bats using that nina-****.

Did it?

I have only seen the movie twice, and can't say I remember it. Link, anyone?

He did. They were basically even smaller versions of the batarang, but one of the wing tips was elongated like a needle.

Right, but nor a blow-pipe? That was what I was talking about.

Nope.

And frankly, given the shape of them, and the way they stuck in the mercs' necks, they really didn't make all that much sense.
