that's not horrible. I will reserve final judgement until i see the real thing, but as a concept it's pretty good.

I'm more appalled by the design of that website.

Yikes.

It's speculative concept art from someone unrelated to the production. Basically, it's some guy doing a drawing.

Put that up on a crappy web site. You could get it greenlit.

I was thinking that.

Because, damn, seems a little soon for concept art.

The only thing I can see them being upset about is the cowl. It's got some really angular parts to it, but that could be explained as room for some sort of communication system or armoring.

The notes at the bottom are important. It says they want the texture to differentiate Batman from the rest of the JLA.

Affleck Derangement Syndrome is a debilitating condition.
 
2013-09-04 02:41:19 PM  
The cowl looks kind of bad, but the rest of the suit is the same thing we had for the last 3 movies.  What exactly is the problem?
 
2013-09-04 02:43:14 PM  
The suit look fine.  Detroit's a good choice for Gotham.  I still don't see Batffleck working.  I hope I'm wrong.
 
2013-09-04 02:46:28 PM  
It looks about the same as every other Batman costume since 1989.  Except for the gold accent on the chest emblem.

Much like Affleck himself:  it'll be fine.

Ben Affleck doing another super hero movie.

Looks like a batman suit to me

The problem with this movie isn't the star. Its the director. Deal with it.
 
2013-09-04 02:50:18 PM  
This story is the best.  Keep it coming.

Maybe fanboiz think Batman needs to be darker than he was in the last three movies?

I think this has possibilities.

DjangoStonereaver: Except for the gold accent on the chest emblem.


Even that isn't unheard of. The 60s Batman had the yellow emblem on the chest to, ahem, "give the goons something other than his head to aim at."

Which isn't a bad strategy, come to think.

Can Affleck do a gravely voice? That's all he really needs to nail the part while in disguise.

Shhhh.  Dont stop them.
 
2013-09-04 03:01:50 PM  
Not that Affleck has to be Christian Bale, but I've never seen him as a tough guy.  His voice... I don't know, it's not lispy, but it's kinda... I don't know how to describe it.  Weak?

Anyway, they can do whatever the fark they want with this series.  I have the three movies I wanted, and I'm very happy with them.  Plus, a lot of the animated stuff they are doing is great - my wife and I rented The Dark Knight Returns, and I couldn't believe how good that was for a cartoon.  I've seen films that weren't directed nearly as well.

The important point here is that we need a new Batgirl

So why are people so up in arms about him?  Yes, he did make Daredevil, but the script was crap.  He wasn't good enough to rescue the script.  True of a lot of actors, some much better than him (Deniro has been in some stinkers he couldn't save either, for example).  Here is a list of movies he has been in since then that gives promise to him doing at least a serviceable, if not good, job. Note, these movies aren't all great, but are at least decent, if forgettable:

Hollywodland
State of Play
The Company Men
The Town
Argo

Some prior to Gigli/Daredevil:
Boiler Room
Reindeer Games
Pearl Harbor (Bayfest that it was, was decent enough)
Changing Lanes
The Sum of All Fears (actually enjoyed, but probably in the minority)


...and a shiatload of Kevin Smith movies, some pretty good.

tl;dr version: I am withholding judgement, think most people should calm down and do so also.

That image is Photoshopped onto (old) art board that DC Comics supplies its artists. Official concept art would be on Warner Brothers art board and would be under lock and farking key. This is glorified fanart.

Me neither. It looks like a no nonsense, practical suit for Batman. I was expecting nipples. (Love that "no nipples
 had to be written. Just in case the costume department got any funny ideas.)

I like accent colors on costumes, but it would seem like somebody so focused on the color black wouldn't have a brown symbol and brown pouches.

So you're saying the official concept art doesn't say "no bat nipples" on it?
