It’s become a tradition for Batman to upgrade his costume between movies. Sometimes, the differences are subtle, but there have been a few radical reinterpretations as well. Earlier this week, we got our first good look at Batman’s outfit from the Justice League movie, which is pretty close to the costume that Ben Affleck wore in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with a few key alterations. Today’s Nerdist News is breaking into the Watchtower to discover what it all means.
Join host and Gotham City fashion maven, Jessica Chobot, as she goes over the important details of the new Batman costume, including that impossible to miss and almost George Clooney-esque silver Bat logo. While that might worry fans who didn’t like Batman & Robin, we’re thinking that the change was made specifically for the poster, since previous pics have shown the Bat with his classic black logo on his chest. But there are some other changes here, including more padding around his body as well as touches of grey throughout that make the costume pop a little bit more than it did before. Because the armor doesn’t appear to be as streamlined as the suit from Batman v Superman, we’re also thinking that Bruce Wayne may have had to put this one together in a hurry.
Of course, this isn’t the only costume that Batman will wear in the film. There’s also the tactical Bat-suit, which has only been briefly glimpsed during the teaser footage. We’re still waiting for a better look at that outfit and can’t wait to see what upgrades it includes to fight the Parademons and the forces of Apokolips.
