Not since Ben Affleck was announced as Batman has the Internet been so divided on the new batsuit that appeared online yesterday as part of the Justice League movie hype engine.

Zack Snyder shared the new “tactical batsuit’ via Twitter yesterday.

I don’t think it is as horrible as everyone wants you to believe it is. Yes, the lens down eye slots do make the Batman look a lot like Night Owl (another Zack Snyder joint), but I am totally okay with that as it lets some of us believe that Diane Nelson’s claim that the DC Multiverse is alive and well through the various television networks and movies. Almost makes you think the movie verse is more like the New-52 than ever before.

The Justice League movie arrives in November 2017, which is already starting to get a little full with Thor: Ragnarok, and Murder on the Orient Express, with Star Wars arriving a month later.

What do you think of Batman’s new look?

  1. Gotta say once again: I don’t like how they make super hero gear look like military or sport gear and this is exactly that. I have a problem with recent military vehicle Batmobiles too.

  2. As a proponent of Comics over movies I understand the disappointment of fans. However I’m also sure that it’s easier for someone like me to suspend my disbelief than an average movie goer. Military-esqe gear is probably the most likely candidate for what a successful hero would need to survive barrages of gunfire and constant beatings. That said, I think there is definitely a resemblance to Night Owl that should have been addressed during preproduction but then again I’m an old fogey who thinks Michael Keaton should have been locked into Batman for life and cryogenically frozen between films.
