More Details on the Batsuit

By Garth Franklin Friday February 27th 2004 02:20PM

A while back we heard a possible description of the new look Batsuit for Christian Bale to don in "Batman Begins", a report that sounded very different to what we have come to expect. Now, UK spy 'Crazy Guy' challenges that report with gossip of his own and a description that sounds more like the suits of old:

"The Batsuit is currently being made at a secret location in Hampshire and will be delivered to Sheppertonlate April. The other description online was probably the dummy cowl with the same surface material which is being usedfor camera testing only, this one may be in the Bob Kane 1930s design as a joke. The genuine suit appears to be in seperate sections at the costume designer's  Hampshire workshop, although the only parts missing were the utility belt and boots which weren't visible when I took a peek.

The body and sectionsare dark grey and rippled somewhat to look like real skin, imagine how they portrayed Spawn and you get the right idea. The Batsymbol is across the chest armour and not in a yellow oval. The cowl and cape are black or dark blue, the cowl looks like the skin material too and is thinner and has realistic human features like cheekbones and forehead.

The ears are fairly long like in the previous movies and the design of the eyes and jaw cutaways are similar. Overall the suit doesnt look as exaggeratedly muscular as it was before and the rubber like material is thinner. I would be worried if this was made for any of the previous actors but Christian Bale is carrying a bit of bulk and beef and this suit would have been made specifically for his larger frame".

Thanks to 'Crazy Guy'
