Robo looks kind of Borgish.

Actually, I remember reading around the time that Batman was released that Keaton had worn a hairpiece. Don't know if that's true or not, but he always seems to have had a receding hairline without ever going fully bald, a bit like Jack Nicholson.

Love the new suit, so far so good.

Ok, I'll admit the helmet looks pretty cool. The armor still reminds me way too much of Iron Man though!

The red visorline looks incredible on the helmet. The suit is still iffy, but reserving judgement till seeing in movie motions.

And it does look like rubber. Maybe they should have spiced it up a bit with a chipped paint effect here and there, so that we see that it's metal underneath the coating.

Don't they enhance the metallic look of Iron Man in post? Sometimes adding entire portions of the suit? Thought I read that before. If so, maybe a similar f/x will be done on the shooting suit here as well.

The suit's growing on me. I do like the red visor, and I'm not sure why his hand's exposed. The Auto-9 was always one of my favorite movie weapons with the other being "Old Painless" from Predator, but I have to say, I like RoboCop's weapon in this one.

Downey, Jr., hasn't worn the "full" suit outside of a few select shots in the first Iron Man film.

Re: ROBOCOP remake finds its director and star

Thanks for the assist. I knew I had understood that to be the case with Iron Man.

So it's possible that the Robocop look could then also be enhanced in post. Give it a more metallic look.

Ok. I have to admit it: the suit is growing on me. The mask is pretty great. And it being all black... it's intimidating.

The suit is also sleeker and probably easier for the actor to wear than the 80s tech.

I never thought i'd see the day when fanboys would complain because a cool suit looks like someone else's cool suit...guys they couldn't even to these design/FX 10-15 years ago, so relax.
