8. The Dark Knight Returns
Frank Miller’s art style may have influenced the rather wonderful looking Sin City, but it’s hard to imagine how exactly this fairly basic design could be effectively brought to the big screen. Why then has it earned a place on this list? Well, it has already been confirmed that the classic tale will influence the movie, so it seems inevitable that we’ll end up seeing some sort of version of the Batsuit pictured above. If not, then what we do get will surely share at least a few cosmetic similarities which pay homage to the classic comic. Regardless of whether Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusader wears a suit which is armoured from the very start or dons a suit like that for a battle with Superman, don’t be in the least bit surprised to see the big screen outfit somehow influenced by this.
