While I enjoyed the Tim Burton movies, I’m not a real fan of the rubber suits, especially here, with what looks like a black felt cape.
What I’m looking for in a film about the early years of the Batman is a hero who is young and inexperienced, untested and imperfect, without the resources and equipment he will obtain later.
I’d rather his costume be made of cloth, even if it covers armor and padding underneath, with a leather cape and cowl. Not only does this reflect the idea of a more vulnerable young hero, it also implies a much faster and energetic range of movement one would expect of the Batman in the prime of his youth.
Give me Sandy Colloraâ€™s Batman over yet another Tim Burton rubber Batman:
