    Adams' and Aparo's Batman often looked pretty muscular, but lean. And yeah, Dwayne... it would be really great to see Bats do some reaaaaly athletic martial arts.

    The best live action Batman I’ve ever seen is in Sandy Collora’s fan film short, Batman: Dead End...played by Clark Bartram...



    Walter Koenig’s late son, Andrew, as the Joker, was pretty damn good too...

    Of course, Clark Bartram is not your ordinary human...





    Super ripped...but not huge like a Terminator/Transformer pro bodybuilder...more like a leaner muscular aerobic instructor...

    Yep, and it proves beyond a doubt that a serious Batman in tights can work.

    Funny, Christopher Reeve didn't seem to have a problem for four whole movies, so...chew on that.

    I think a compromise can be reached, it all depends on the designer and the director. Shazam! (how I hate to type that), Wonder Woman, and Aquaman looked plausible. Routh's Superman, Speedo notwithstanding, looked decent. With Marvel, they've done X-Men, Black Widow, Spidey and Captain America pretty well. I ilked Daredevil I, too.

    Batman can be done similarly. I don't think we're ever going to see a "classic" Batman onscreen now, a homage to Adam West, etc. But something closer to tradition, with color variation, should be considered and is possible. Affleck edged towards that, though I did not like his suit.

    But armor just does not suit the character. IMO, Batman should apppear stylized, even a bit vulnerable, and then Kick Butt.

    What does Superman have to do with anything? Superman is effectively invulnerable. Batman is just a normal human being who fights people who have guns (or worse).

    I actually liked Affleck's suit a lot... in fact for me it was the best of the movie Bat suits to date.

    The ideal suit for the big screen would be one that maintained the overall flexibility and aesthetic of the comic book suit.
    Maybe some kind of fibre mesh outer layer with a classic style cowl.
    If the film-makers wanted to incorporate some more substantial armoured elements to it, they could do so sparingly without the final result looking like it was designed as a collaboration between Bruce Wayne and Tony Stark.

    Actually, the designers could look to the suits from the early entries in the Arkham series of video games to see a suit that resembled the comic book one in most respects while still being a substantial, rugged outfit not overly dependent on rigid armoured components.
