Well, that's one way to get rid of sexual tension.

Seen in bright light it does look bad. It's way over detailed. But then I consider that that isn't what it's really meant to look like.

It's the same with physical models of sic-fi hardware and ships. Which is the intent: how it really looks like or how it looks like onscreen? Because often how it really looks like can be quite different (at least in detail and colour) from how it looks onscreen.

The Bat-suit is like a stillsuit from Dune.

Everything is absorbed and re-processed.

It's not the end of an era until I see the closing credits.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Well, my arguments on the costume weren't so much it's detail, or lack there of. But more on the color of the costume in those picture where it's a blue-gray color starkly contrasting with the black cape. But, I grant, that in the movie the costume may look different than it does in a candid photo.

But I'm more not a fan of the sharp angles and surfaces on the cowl/mask. The broken up pieces and panels of the suit itself doesn't look too good it makes the suit look too busy visually instead of it all being one, single, piece that all blends together but I also understand the plot/story explanation for it looking like this (better movement at the cost of being slightly more vulnerable.)

It looks like a basic Bat suit to me.

Yes. And I still won't be swayed until I see it onscreen rather than onset stills. I saw Nolan's Batman costume onscreen before I saw onset stills. I still had reservations, but I could live with it because of everything else. Man Of Steel will have to be exceptional for me to overlook what I think is presently a horrible costume.

:facepalm:

So... you'll bitch about photos of Superman's costume from on set and refuse to change your mind about them till you see them on screen, but then simultaneously defend the Bat-suit because you know what it looks like on screen, even though on set it looks different or bad?

Am I the only one that does NOT see any logic here?

Yes. I wasn't crazy about the Nolan Batsuit when I first saw it onscreen, but I learned to live with it because of everything else in the film(s). The recent TDKR onset shots are the most revealing I've seen of the suit and I 'm just glad it doesn't look that way onscreen...so far. I think the MOS costume is awful presently and I'll see what it looks like onscreen. I might change my mind, but I'm not optimistic.

Not at all. It's quite straightforward. I don't like the MOS costume. The movie itself could be awesome and I could still dislike the costume. We'll see.

I didn't care for Nolan's batsuit at first and I still have some reservations, but most everything else in the films has been great. I initially didn't like the first released shots of the Tumbler, but when I saw in action onscreen I was won over and now I quite like it.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

The problem comes when people (myself) point out flaws in these on-set photos of the costume and you're all "It'll look different on the big screen, don't judge." all the while saying how much you dislike the candid shots of the Superman costume when, through experience with the Batman movies, you know it'll look different on screen.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I don't see what the problem is. Nolan's bat suit still gives me some pause even though it does look better onscreen. Green Lantern's suit looked awful onset and onscreen. MOS' suit looks bad (to me) onset and I'll wait to see what it looks like onscreen. It might be okay and it might not.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Liam Neeson talks TDKR. Is he in it or not? Is he telling the truth or not?
