    Awesome. I really can't wait to see what they do with Batman. I hope it can balance in some fun. I'd love to see Bruce continue the good fight with enthusiasm instead of prolonged misery.

    The director is supposed to be a huge fan of the 66 series so hopefully there are some touches of it in the designs. Be really cool if DC did a 360 and went all bright and West-like in the movie

    They kind of did that in the '90s and I was not all that fond of the Schumacher films--particularly the last.

    ^Indeed, it's a slippery slope, isn't it? But I suspect audiences might just be ready for a Batman with just a dash of levity in how he behaves. I can think of a lot of key art from Neal Adams and Jose Garcia Lopez that features a Batman who smiles.

    Schumacher captured none of the charm, his movies were almost like someone described the show to him instead of being a fan. And I still stand beside my theory that the Dark Knight Returns was Miller's take on an old Adam West Batman

    I realize the tank may make more sense but I definitely prefer a muscle car.

    Maybe customize a '69 Charger



    Or maybe a 770 Equus Bass

    ^Quite like the Batmobile of the '70s "penthouse/downtown Batcave" era.

    The Batman will be based, at least loosely, on the Jeph Loeb-penned limited series The Long Halloween. Published between 1996 and 1997 and featuring art by comics great Tim Sale, the series is set in the early days of the Dark Knight's crime-fighting career (as The Batman is known to be), and features Bats shaking down Gotham's criminals while investigating a series of brutal murders.

    According to WGTC's report, Pattinson's Batsuit will feature a look very similar to the one Sale created for The Long Halloween. We're talking a grey suit with traces of black (especially in the mask), with a large black Bat-emblem on the chest; a big, billowy blue cape with a blue cowl, and very long, pointy ears.



    Also, people hate on Pattinson...but check some of his indie work, he’s a good actor. Plus he has that chiseled jawline that’s complimentary to the cowl...

    I’m digging how this is progressing so far.

    Plus like T-Bolt said, the director is a fan of the 60s show.
