    No offense to anyone, but in my opinion I thought this suit was just god awful ugly since the second I laid eyes on it.

    I've always been partial to the new 52 suit anyway.

    That's how I think of almost all the costumes from that game. . .

    The suit from Injustice is far too busy, unnecessary detail, which was a problem with TDK suit imo.

    At least with the TDK suit the business was sort of hidden because the entire suit was so dark. When it's a gray suit with a lot of black lines, it looks pretty bad, in my opinion.

    Simple is better.

    That's because it is. Damn thing reminds me of Clooney's Ice Suit.

    Whatever they do, I hope it is free of ugly external armour. We have seen that in every Batman movie since 1989, and in my opinion it only looked passable in the context of the Burton films.

    Too many Batsuit threads :cmad::oldrazz:

    [​IMG]
    Numbered the pics for reference; pics have original watermark and artist signatures as well.

    1. I know a lot of posters here hate the cowl, but it's the thing I love most about the concept of this costume, it's a great looking cowl I would love. I also love the way the cape is attached and the knee pads used.
    Also not numbered, but I thought the Batman Begins/The Dark Knight belt is perfect.

    2. With the Batman Earth One suit, I want the yellow bat-symbol again. If no yellow, then I like the grey and midnight blue/black combo here. I want the black bat-symbol to be prominent on top of the grey. I also would like the piping here from the torso and legs; the leg piping here is the only amount of piping I want, it's in the proper place for the legs to stretch, bend, and it has a proper codpiece without it looking like an overly huge bulge.

    3. With Cap's costume, I want to use the same fabric for Batman's suit, excluding cape, except in Batman's colors in pic 2. I also would like the same type of boots.

    4. On the Tron costume, I like the hexagon-pattern mesh underneath the armor to combine with the Cap America Avengers costume.

    5. Snake Eye's arms are just like how I'd like Batman's to be like. I'd like to see the mesh material be the Tron hexagon-mesh instead. I also like the shoulder and bicep pads, and the gauntlets, all that needs to be added are the bat-fins.

    6. I liked the material used on Nite-Owl's cape from Watchmen, and in the color of pic 2. One change I would make, would be to make the cape fully black, but have the underside to it be the midnight blue color.

    I feel like the New 52 suit would be too busy on-screen. Maybe a simplified version of it would work better.

    I think the "Incorporated" suit is the best in recent years, and was dispensed with much too quickly.

    I want to see a fabric-based suit for once. Grey/black - the whole look.

    If Captain America can get a fabric suit or a material that looks like it came from the comics, so can Batman.

    I want to see the all white eyes like the animated series. I want to continue with an all black suit.

    I just don't see the white eyes working on film, unless they go down the Sky Captain/Sin City route.

    Lenses would be cool. Plus it'd make him seem less human - and take away that makeup around the eyes which I find funny to imagine Batman applying.

    White eyes and pure fabric will never work on film for Batman, sorry.

    Why would it not? If it works for spider-man it can work for batman.

    I'm not seeing the big deal. Just take a Christian bale bat photo and makes his eyes completely white. What's the big deal?

    I really hope I can see the white eyes done and done well on the big screen someday. Some might disagree but I think it is one of the most important parts about the costume. It makes Batman look like a demon. Like a larger than life creature of the night as opposed to just a dude in a costume.

    Notice how in all the moments when Batman looked the scariest in live-action, it was usually because you couldn't see his eyes (they were often intentionally covered by a black shadow).

    Yea, like in the dark knight when batman had the tech in his eyes and they were all white, just get it done properly and I want to see batman expression through these white eyes like in btas. If spawn can have green eyes on film so can bats

    After posting and thinking more about it... I was wrong and have to agree Arkham suit would look horrible on the screen... New 52 or go home :word:

    Yes it would, sorry.

    This isn't the 80s anymore. Rubber wetsuits like TDKR/TDK/BB/BAR/BF/BR/B89's are out of date, and there are numerous movies that show fabric-based superhero costumes working extremely well.
