I kinda dig this Batman suit. Any Batman coming out in 2015 has almost unreachable expecations to live up to, and it all starts with the suit. The body of the suit is much bigger than Christian Bale’s Batman, with enormous arms and even a toned six pack. I think Snyder is trying to make his version of Batman as human as possible, since Batman is probably the most human superhero, at least out of the ones made into movie franchises. Christopher Nolan turned Batman into such a complex character, one with many internal struggles, and it looks like Snyder is following in those footsteps. Batman is pictured in dark lighting, with his head down, clearly not in his happy place. Smoke bellows in the background, possibly from the Batmobile, but its clear that wherever Batman is will soon be cloaked in chaos. My favorite part of the Batman suit is the cap, which seems like a clear ode to the original Batman TV series played by Adam West. It’s nice to see Snyder tip his own cap to some of the retro Batman’s, and it’ll be interesting to see what personal touches he puts on the character and the movie.
