BAT SUIT

Does batman need armor? No, not really. I think it would be nice to see the classic gray and black suit in live action in a non campy way. In the movies he's been turning up in a full body thick padded or full body heavily plated bullet resistant suit, and that makes sense i guess. With the old gray and black, I always thought that the darker parts of his suit were the protected areas, the bullet resistant armor. If that cape is wrapped around him isn't that enough, plus the shorts to protect the tender bits. Also, following that thinking would make the chest symbol added protection instead of just decoration. Is it even possible to have a material that can resist fire arms and knives and still be that light and fluid? I wasn't sure so i did a quick search on body armor and got a big maybe as an answer.

Pretty interesting. During the late 1920s through the early 1930s, gunmen from criminal gangs in the United States began wearing less-expensive vests made from thick layers of cotton padding and cloth. These early vests could absorb the impact of handgun rounds such as .22 Long Rifle, .25 ACP, .32 S&W Long, .32 S&W, .380 ACP, and .45 ACP traveling at speeds of up 300 m/s (1000 ft/s). So, why the hell not, it's fiction anyway.  The picture below is an example, taken in the 1920's.  Hard to believe a vest that thin can offer so much protection.



I really enjoyed the dark knight movie, it's as close to the long halloween or year one that we're probably going to get in live action. Loved every bit of it except for the fight scenes. Somehow fightscenes in batman movies tend to get muddled to the point where you can't tell what's going on... they're probably cutting corners to try and not make the suit look silly.  Well i take that back, you can tell what's going on but there's never really an objective behind them besides getting a few thugs out of the way, pretty meaningless.  Seems like just a few quick cut shots of people getting slapped in the face.
