After spending much of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice in a costume that made him look like a the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man after waaaaaay too long on the sunbed, Batman has a new “tactical” armoured costume for the Justice League movie revealed in by director Zack Snyder on his Twitter feed.
The new costume has echoes of Nite Owl’s from another Snyder film, Watchmen. We think it’s the goggles and the ears.
In the image Batman also appears to be bringing life to the Bride Of Frankenstein. Now, she’d make a great addition to the team…!
Speaking to ComicBook.com, costume designer Michael Wilkinson reveals, “In the final chapter of our film, Batman realises he has to step up his game a little bit and he and Alfred have been working on developing a suit that’s even more protective and offers more deflection than the classic suit. So you can see the classic suit underneath, but on top are straps and layers of the carbon fibre, strengthening armour plates, he’s got sort of a leather layer upon here that he is strapping all over his plates onto the wrapping around his body and offering just a little more protection than the old. He’s also going to get a new cowl with some new tech details and that gives him even more protection. We’re going to do some goggles for him, a new tech cape made out of our carbon fibre weave.”
