    I saw this over at the 'Rama. I'm still not sure how I feel about it. I mean, it looks cool, but almost too tech-y. I do like that Bale will be able to move his head this time around.

    Begins suit was better. This is to techy. We are 2 dots away from nipples which at this rate should appear in the next film. And according to comic franchise movies, the third movie is always the crap that ruins it. Superman 3, Spiderman 3, Batman Forever, X3

    I'm waiting to see how this turns out but I'm actually all right with the cowl at least.

    People have made that reference as well as calling him Ironman, Tron, and a motocross rider. :( 

    I'm not gonna give up on this movie yet, though.

    I've seen far worse versions(Cough, cough nipples). This one is a little odd, but time will tell.

    It's not bad, but not sure if I entirely like it. The suit in Begins was pretty good already, why change it so much? Streamline it and improve it, but why change the overall look?

    The RoboCop thing was tossed out as a comparison... so I'll use it a bit. Between RoboCop and RoboCop 2, the suit was changed to be easier to get into and out of, and to make it more comfortable for Peter Weller to wear and move in, yet it outwardly still looked almost identical to the original. Why wouldn't that work here? I wonder if there'll be at least a storyline explaination. But, even if not... it's not bad.

    Hmm... Looks kinda cool. I like that Bats can move his head side to side now. Although it's been so long since I've seen Begins that I forgot that the costume couldn't do it.

    I'm a little forgiving with some comic-to-film translations, but even I'll admit there's something off-putting about it. It's a little too segmented and the shoulder pads are too big. But it's still pretty damn cool and won't make or break The Dark Knight for me. Unlike some people who let the Superman costume dictate whether or not they would see Superman Returns.

    The adjustments to the head/cowl are fantastic, but the overall tech look to the bodysuit has me a bit worried. I'm thinking though, that it's not so different from the original suit, just that it's under harsher light than we've seen before.

    I like it, just about as much as i liked the begins costume and that's a hell of a whole lot more than I like the standard comic costume and its derivitives.

    I like it. Looks like a perfect update for the Begins suit, which was basically just quickly thrown together. It looks like he'll be a lot more mobile in this as well (the padded armor looks like it's made to allow smoother movements, which he's going to need against the Joker).

    Hopefully the increased mobility of the suit will allow them to show better fights scenes that aren't edited every half second.

    What ever happened to the days of being able to tell what was going on in an fight sequence?

    I think it looks great personally. Especially loving the cowl which I thought was the worst part of the Begins suit. This looks far better than any other movie or TV show's Batsuit (yeah eeeeven better than Adam Wests :p )

    EDIT:Ok why does the sticky out tongue smiley on this forum make it look like I just really like Adam West, instead of the cheeky sorta sarcastic look on other forums?

    Am new here and not too familiar with the differences :)
