Now from a purely objective standpoint this…ok, fine, it looks awesome. There’s a lot of the Batman Returns suit in here, which replaced the “sculpted musculature” look of Keaton’s first Batman costume with a more segmented armor look in the torso, as well as the arrival of a more “traditional” bat-logo from the slightly more stylized one the first film boasted. But there are some cool new touches, as well, notably the extended and more prominent forearm gauntlets.
That’s a brand new utility belt design, too. They’ve opted to go with a darker color scheme for that rather than the gold it was in both Burton movies (and how it’s traditionally been depicted in the comics). That’s a shame, as the gold always makes for such a great contrast against the jet black of this costume design. Then again, considering how averse DC as a whole has been to any color at all in their live action Bat-suits for the last 20 years, I suppose I should be thankful that they’re even keeping the yellow oval around the bat, so I suppose this utility belt is a reasonable compromise.
So when will we see this suit in action? Batgirl doesn’t have a release date at the moment, and has long been said to be arriving in “late 2022” on HBO Max. However, rumors continue to swirl that this can’t be released until after the Andy Muschietti-helmed The Flash hits, and that film doesn’t arrive until June 23, 2023. We’ll just have to be patient for now.
