Cowl looks strange.... my biggest gripe with Nolans batman suite was the neck being slimmed down, it should go straight down from the top like Keaton's did. Have no problem with the bat on the chest, looks fine. A trimmed down Arkham knight (the game) suite would be okay imo

But, still think Affleck's suite in bvs (not the armored one) is the best looking this far (Keaton's close though).

Keatons was fixed, he couldn’t turn his head so he’d have to turn his upper chest to face anyone/camera

Yeah, if I remember correctly Bale had it in batman begins until fox fixes it with the slimmed neck.
Even if motion is restricted, It does look much cooler and more comic book like imo

Yeah that was one of the first things they looked at when designing TDK suit

Affleck dropped out after a friend told him he was about to drink himself to death if he put himself through more stress on top of divorce

Yeah.

Turns out it was also because of how much Joss Whedon screwed up Batman in JL

They should do it with 5 or so cowls in different neck positions the actor switches between takes.

🤔 i understand why it may look the way it does, definitely trying to keep it grounded....I feel he’s missing a katana, getting Batman Ninja vibes from that pic

It's set in batman's 2nd year so the suit will look different to what people are used to

This Cowl looks like from the gaslight. Almost everything just in that tease screams gaslight, with day one, and a bit of noire vibe to it.

Yes, you're right, but seeing as it's not set in the Victorian era, it's a strange call if they're going that route with the suit imo. I do love that setting though and would actually love if they made a real movie in that universe.
