During DC FanDome, director Matt Reeves described the Batsuit we see in The Batman as evolving, “we needed to be able to sort of see how it would fit on him in these ways that he could move, but also look like it was something that was still evolving.” Leading many to wonder if we’d see a different suit in this movie, as it’s only Year Two for Batman.
Six months ago a user on Reddit posted a description of what could be the second suit in the movie and based on some of their other comments it could possibly be real:
It’s Batman’s prototype suit and once it gets destroys, he makes a new one. I haven’t seen it in action but I saw a few pictures taken by someone who was putting it together.
It’s extremely similar to Spider-Man’s SHIELD suit from the ‘Far From Home’ movie last year. The material is very similar, being a sort of tactical padded fabric material. There’s way less straps and extra details on the batsuit compared to the Spider-Man suit but the material and look is very similar.
It’s grey, with full black gloves extending to his forearms and black boots. The symbol is no longer metal and lacking ears, it’s a more “classic” version of the symbol on the first suit in the film. The cowl is made of a higher quality material than the leather of the first cowl. The ears are medium-to-long length and the mouth opening is much smaller. He no longer has the collar. (I think he might have the white eyes too)
The utility belt is a bronze-gold faded color, and it’s more pouch than the futuristic metal type belt of the Nolan films.
Of course it’s Reddit, which is filled with bullshit, but this user replied to a comment with this:
I don’t want to give out my exact job but I’m not an extra. It’s a funeral scene that gets crashed by a villain. Catwoman is in costume but everyone else is in normal character clothing I guess. No Batsuit on set.
This was six months ago and that scene is in the trailer:
So we have someone acturately describing a scene from The Batman six months before anyone saw any footage of it while describing what a second Batsuit would look like in the movie. If true, all of those people complaining about this Batsuit might look a little silly next October.
