Love the Batman Begins suit, best live action Batsuit and portrayal of Batman yet imho. Didn't like the Dark knight suit and was always on the fence about the cancer voice. Here's hoping Affleck will give us something amazing & fresh.
I agree that Bale is the best portrayal of Batman yet. Though I believe Val Kilmer had the most potential. He was just in a movie with bad writing. The only problem I had with the Batsuit in TDK was the cowl, but when I realized the reason it looked the way it did, it grew on me. IMO, TDK suit is the best Batsuit in any medium.(second only to the new 52 look) I thought the voice change was awesome in Begins, but they went overboard in TDK and TDKR and it became the "cancer" voice. I'm really looking forward to what Snyder and Affleck have in store for Batman.
Yeah Kilmer got so f**ked by Joel Schumacher. We're just lucky Joel's career died before it saw that terrible movie lol. What do you mean by? "when I realized the reason it looked the way it did" Was a specific reason why it looked like that? o_- Anyways I hated both the suit and the cowl. The suit made Bale look so much "slimmer" & smaller compared to the BB suit, and I hated the cowl's small mouth opening. Also Bale always had his mouth open >:^0 I'll chalk that up to the little mouth hole. Same here, that part where he gives Rachel the "rattle the cage" speech in the subway station. First time i saw that i was like "yes! They finally got it right". Shame he changed so much in TDK.
How did they do it too much in TDK and TDKR? Besides talking to Lucius in the voice when they were alone, I don't see any other problems.
The cowl looked the way it did for the sake of function. The BB cowl was a solid piece from top to bottom, so he couldn't turn just his head to see what beside him. He had to turn his whole upper body. The cowl in TDK had a break at the neck that allowed him to turn his head. I agree with the small mouth hole part though.
ah ok I get ya. Yeah I noticed that. I can't help but wonder if they can ever just CGI the suit.
Looks great xD can't wait.
