Of course, Christian Bale’s time as Batman came to an end with The Dark Knight Rises in 2012, and we’re now all anxiously waiting to see what Ben Affleck will look like in the iconic costume. Rumour has it that a first look at “Batfleck” is on the way, so we thought that now would be a good time to look ahead to the designs which Batman Vs. Superman director Zack Snyder will have hopefully looked at for inspiration.
We’ve also listed a number of other takes on the Batsuit which would be great to see brought to the big screen in either the upcoming team-up movie, Justice League or even a new Batman franchise. Which do you like the most? Check them all out below and let us know your thoughts in the comment section!
10. Batman Noel
Lee Bermejo’s Batman: Noel is a unique re-imagining of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, and it features a pretty unique look for the Caped Crusader. A live-action version of this leather outfit could run the risk of looking too much like Daredevil (a movie Ben Affleck desperately wants to forget), but the reinforced areas give it far more shape and an armoured appearance which allows the character – and actor – wearing it a lot of freedom to move. Rumour has it that the cowl in Batman Vs. Superman is actually based on this one, but there’s no reason to stop there. The way that the bat symbol and cloak are connected is very visually appealing, while the overall look is extremely faithful to the comic books without being too similar to what we’ve seen in the past.
