jatfly - 9/11/2011, 2:56 PM
Uh there is a RUMOR....SPOILER ALERT

That Batman has all those imposters from TDK help him....Not sure for what. But that dude looks like one of those imposters.
LucasMend - 9/11/2011, 2:56 PM

NOLANITE - 9/11/2011, 3:01 PM
@Lucax Rumor is that theyre gonna look alot like this!
LOL - 9/11/2011, 3:01 PM
the cowl still annoyingly resembles more like a cat in some of the shots.... other than that, the last movie in the trilogy should be ok.
Roscoe182 - 9/11/2011, 3:06 PM
damn i bet its super hot in there.
UltimateSpiderman - 9/11/2011, 3:06 PM

NOLANITE - 9/11/2011, 3:06 PM
@KAL so nothing has excited ya? This is what Bale and the rumored JGL robin/nightwing do off the set.

LucasMend - 9/11/2011, 3:07 PM

DioFoRio - 9/11/2011, 3:12 PM
hey! He does wear hockey pants!
Forilaz - 9/11/2011, 3:15 PM
He looks much bigger! Like the Batman in "Arkham Asylum"!
n1ghtw1ng2832 - 9/11/2011, 3:23 PM
I love the way the cape looks.
WruceBane - 9/11/2011, 3:25 PM
these are the best set photos of Bale in costume yet. he and the costume look great.

the rounding up of batman imposters into an army comes from Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns. who is arguably one of the best writers of the batman character.

soooo.....take it up with Frank Miller if you don't like it.

Marvel72 is turning into intruder
BARONBLOOD - 9/11/2011, 3:28 PM
Why does it have to look so mech? sleek would have been better. I like the costume from Batman Begins better. I don't understand why they have to make the costume so busy looking????
SamHell - 9/11/2011, 3:28 PM
shit suit
angus666 - 9/11/2011, 3:29 PM
Enough water marks on those? Costume looks good but I wish his neck was bigger. Like in Begins.
marvel72 - 9/11/2011, 3:35 PM
@ cjkalel

why? because i thought the imposter batman's was shit idea,okay nothing against intruder i'm my own person i don't try & be anyone else.also lucaxmen agreed with me.
capcyclopsftw - 9/11/2011, 3:40 PM
why didn't they update the bat suit? Every batman movie has had a different suit. Except this one has the same one as TDK? wtf NOLAN?
Freek - 9/11/2011, 4:04 PM
MAN. Batman's costume looks like crap from here... or is it just me?!? With all the "mech" added to it Batman looks like a skinny loser.
imaremote - 9/11/2011, 4:12 PM
The other Batman wanna be is JGL.
imaremote - 9/11/2011, 4:14 PM
And how could the imposters from the TDK get that kind of armor as well?
MarkV - 9/11/2011, 4:18 PM
Looks like they tweaked it to make it a little "beefier". Still has a pencil neck though, they need to fix that.

Was kinda hoping for a new costume in the third act. We'll see.
NeoBaggins - 9/11/2011, 4:19 PM
@Forilaz Yeah, I guess we can kill that noise about Bale being small. He looks bigger here than TDK. Looks like Batman.
CanadaMan - 9/11/2011, 4:25 PM
I think his stunt double might be wearing hockey pants! ;o
skiteman - 9/11/2011, 4:25 PM
Batman has become Iron Man with ears. meh
skiteman - 9/11/2011, 4:26 PM
FROGGY your touch of gray on the suit really looks nice
TheAmazingSpiderMan47 - 9/11/2011, 4:56 PM
whoa froggy tht looks pretty sick
try changing the bat symbal to the color of the belt just for kicks
Dechiriko - 9/11/2011, 4:58 PM
[frick] you isopix
thewolfx - 9/11/2011, 5:00 PM

thats what its sposed to look like

shame its still the shit suit from the last one but then again these movies never had a good art direction in the first place.
NeoBaggins - 9/11/2011, 5:04 PM
@Froggy Those are pretty sick. I wonder what it'd look like if the underwear were more like shorts. But not too long. Maybe the next Director will use a greyish suit.
NeoBaggins - 9/11/2011, 5:30 PM
I've been trying to figure out the new suits material. Is it armor?
StingrayX - 9/11/2011, 5:30 PM
This is starting to get ridiculous with the set pics.
YeaOkYea - 9/11/2011, 5:47 PM
Is his cape made of suede??? Laaame.
jojones - 9/11/2011, 5:52 PM
I think it is weak that they used the same costume and didn't improve upon it. I don't like the different shades between the helmet/cape and the suit. I think it should all be dark. Loved the BB suit.
