I don't really see how. And there aren't exactly a ton of great alternatives. The options are basically either rubber armor like the TDK costume, leather like the X-Men costumes, or texture like the Spidey/MOS costumes.

And nothing will ever be more dated than the spandex look, so that's obviously never coming back.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Imagine if Superman and Batman had been featured in another anthology of the 1940s such as More Fun Comics or All-American Comics...would fans be insisting that the new movie be called All-American or More Fun?

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

I like the title World's Finest, especially as a prelude to a Justice League movie. But the title itself probably wouldn't scream "superhero movie" to general audiences.

Man Of Steel - The Dark Knight Returns!

I like the bat suit and mobile.

^ No biggie. The costume director said that Superman will have a new costume for this movie.
I'm very curious for Superman's costume reveal. I wasn't a big fan of the suit from the last movie either. I know I'll probably be crucified for this, but I'd like to see something a little more along the lines of the New 52 suit.
The costume designer said the change would be only slight, so I'm guessing they brightened up the colors and maybe altered some of the alieny design work along the sides.

I was a big fan of the MOS suit myself, although I definitely think it looked a lot better in the behind the scenes shots than in the darkened onscreen version.
The costume change.

I found a high res version that someone colorized. I hope it's close to what the suit looks like for real, because it's fantastic. The image is pretty huge, though, so here's a link to it instead.
Thanks for the link. That really brings out the texture of the suit much better than the original promo image. That suit looks fantastic, and Affleck's really bulking up to fill out the suit.

Yeah, I saw those pics. It's kinda weird to see Ben Affleck that buff.

It is nice to get a good look at the suit's texture, too. It looks like there are actually "scars" on the suit, a lot of wear and tear. Very appropriate for a Batman who's been in business for a while!

And what appears to be another shot of the car, or at least a model:

And while not in costume, this pic shows just how bulky Affleck is now:

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

The suit looks very cartoony, and the bat logo on his chest looks especially so. Not a complaint, just an observation.

The title of the film hasn't officially been announced yet. Though I don't think they'll use "World's Finest," either.
Well, Superman vs. Batman was the title they used in the same press release that announced it would be followed by a Justice League movie. The articles I read at the time asserted that to mean that this was the title they'd decided on. Although I see now that IMDb is calling it Batman vs. Superman instead and Wikipedia just calls it an untitled sequel, so maybe I was misinformed.
Thank god. 'Superman vs. Batman' is an awful title for this kind of movie series.

Probably. If titles like those had become iconic over several decades, people might not think of them as weird or silly.

Again, though, iconic to whom? The actual comics-reading audience is a tiny fraction of the moviegoing audience. What's iconic to comics fans is totally obscure to most in the TV and movie audience, at least until it gets adapted to the screen. That's why comics over the decades have always been prone to follow the lead of their radio, TV, and film adaptations: because the adaptations were much, much more popular and better-known.

The director of photography Larry Fong shared this pic, so there's some Joker speculation going around now.
