Stuff I (probably) stole from Wikipedia:

The fictional superhero Batman, who appears in American comic books published by DC Comics, has appeared in various films since his inception. Created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger,[1] the character first starred in two serial films in the 1940s: Batman and Batman and Robin. The character also appeared in the 1966 film Batman, which was a feature film adaptation of the 1960s Batman TV series starring Adam West and Burt Ward, who also starred in the film. Toward the end of the 1980s, the Warner Bros. studio began producing a series of feature films starring Batman, beginning with the 1989 film Batman, directed by Tim Burton and starring Michael Keaton. Burton and Keaton returned for the 1992 sequel Batman Returns, and in 1995, Joel Schumacher directed Batman Forever with Val Kilmer as Batman. Schumacher also directed the 1997 sequel Batman & Robin, which starred George Clooney. Batman Forever and Batman & Robin were poorly received by both critics and fans, leading to the cancellation of Batman Unchained.[2]

Following the cancellation of two further film proposals, the franchise was rebooted in 2005 with Batman Begins, directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Christian Bale. Nolan returned to direct two further installments through the release of The Dark Knight in 2008 and The Dark Knight Rises in 2012, with Bale reprising his role in both films. Both sequels earned over $1 billion worldwide, making Batman the second film franchise to have two of its films earn more than $1 billion worldwide.[3] Referred to as the “The Dark Knight Trilogy”[4], the critical acclaim and commercial success of Nolan’s films have been credited with restoring widespread popularity to the superhero, with the second installment considered one of the best superhero movies of all time.

After Warner Bros. launched their own shared cinematic universe known as the DC Extended Universe in 2013, Ben Affleck was cast to portray Batman in the new expansive franchise, first appearing in 2016 with the Zack Snyder-directed film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The film would help begin a sequence of further DC Comics adaptations, including Justice League, a crossover film featuring other DC Comics characters, in 2017, and the stand-alone film The Batman, directed by Matt Reeves, with Robert Pattinson in the role.[5]

The series has grossed over $4.99 billion at the global box office, making it the eleventh highest-grossing film franchise of all time. Batman has also appeared in multiple animated films, both as a starring character and as an ensemble character. While most animated films were released direct-to-video, the 1993 animated feature Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (based on the 1990s Batman: The Animated Series) and 2017’s The Lego Batman Movie (a spin-off of 2014’s The Lego Movie) were released theatrically. Having earned an unadjusted total of U.S. $2,783,118,504, the Batman series is the fourth-highest-grossing film series in North America.[6]

    I'm just wishing one of the these batsuits had the cape wrapping more around the body, going over the shoulders and concealing more of his body insead of just the back. I also think a batsuit that had longer, more bat-like ears like the very first Batman comics would also be cool.

  3. Danny Day Music

    I never liked the Nolan batsuits either. Really a shame about those. The most true to the idea of striking terror into the hearts of criminals was Keaton’s suit and the way it was shot/lit in Batman ‘89.

  4. Jesus Kaine 25

    In my personal opinion I like ben affleck, michael keaton, robert pattinson and christain bales suits
    I know keaton and bale each have two diffrent suits but my favorite would have to be the ones from TDK and batman 89

  5. The fan

    In spite of the quality of the dc snyder films, that batman suit was just amazing. Best part was Ben afflecks size just fit suit really well. I think this and the batman begins one are probably my favourites


    The over design of Nolan's batsuit is actually even worse considering how many weak points are not only there but exposed. The gray spandex would actually be a good thing to put over the suit. Think modern police riot gear, it has multiple armor pads that cover the body, but a large jumpsuit over those plates to hide them and protect them.

    I actually really, REALLY, like the ice suits…but…I don't think they work on BRUCE. might try and make my own batfamily character with the color scheme, idk.

    I mean in my opinion capes before and after the Nolan verse kinda overshot it, feels like they’re pushing it a bit like “look it’s leather, leather equals dark and cool”

    And most onscreen capes just look kinda heavy to me like he can not be comfortable moving around with that

    The Nolan trilogy just kinda kept the perfect balance for me

  9. SDM

    Well I mean

    Lewis Wilson and Robert Lowry wore grey and black but that’s just because their films were in black and white

  10. Ryan Wequ

    I've always liked the Batman Forever (Panther) suit, Val Kilmer as Batman/Bruce Wayne was great. Also, everyone seems to do screentests in the BF Sonar Suit for some reason haha.

    I HATE Pattinson's Batsuit, it's not the worst, but I hate it, the black utility belt looks weird, the bat symbol is overdesigned, the collar looks wrong, the sides of his mask that go over the chin are so far back he just looks like he's wearing a helmet, and the ears are so far back on the helmet and so short that it makes him look like he has a GINORMOUS forehead, plus I'm honestly tired of the Armored batsuits, and I found the character designs for everyone in the film very lacking, plus it doesn't have the spikes on the cape, which are supposed to look like a bat, and the glide suit looked really weird and tedious, other people aren't wrong for liking it or anything, I just find it really REALLY ugly

  13. TheDEEPFriar

    Really dislike the Zach Snyder bat suits all three bat suits are much too bulky, I think Batman needs a more sleek feeling suit so he can fight and move and not be encumbered. I love the combat armor look of The Nolan Bat suits

    With Robert suit i understand its a batman 2 years in but did it need the squirrel suit for gliding for the setting of a batman 2 years in or were they short on the budget for doing a cape wing glider function on the suit ?

  15. Ci

    TDK maybe my favorite movie of all time but the cowl of the suit makes me feel like i am watching an egg in a bat costume

  16. bhunt799

    My favorite suits are The Batman 2022 suit, Batman Begins suit, Batfleck suit and the Batman Returns suit.
    My least favorite suit is The Dark Knight suit.
