Not too keen on the new costume for Batman. People complain that the shorts look like underwear, so they give him a suit that looks like longjohns (complete with flap!!!!) hahahahahahahaha
Anyone else see Christian Bale in Frank's Bruce Wayne?
Badass Alfred (with a tat and ripped arms) leaves me cold.
I didn't really agree with your statement when I read it over on Newsarama
, either...as far as the new costume goes, I'm just glad to see the yellow circle come back. I didn't like it much as a lad, but ever since Frank Miller explained it in The Dark Knight Returns
, I've thought it was a great idea, and besides, it breaks up the monotony of all that black and grey. Also, the redesign looks functional without being all one colour, like the movie suits have been.
Don't really see Christian Bale in this Bruce Wayne design either (if anything, he looks like a Paul Gulacy drawing, which is no
bad thing). I'm kind of with you on the Alfred thing, but let's face, Pennyworth has looked more or less the same since he stopped being fat back in the 40s, and more than anything else, this Alfred redesign tells you immediately
that this is a different take on things.
