The 2008 movie, Batman: The Dark Knight, gives comic book fans the seventh big screen installment of the Caped Crusader. The star, Christian Bale is the fifth and latest actor to wear the super cool Batman cape and mask. Eversince the first Batman movie release in 1966, fans noted the evolving Batman costumes which began as a tight-fitting cloth that now changed to the modernized body armor first seen in the 1989 Batman movie. Still, even the modern versions of the Batman costume have noticeable variants. The different versions of these Batman costumes make it fun for fans during Halloween and convention gathering. ADAM WEST BATMAN COSTUME The very first Batman movie costume was worn by Adam West. Perhaps, his version is the easiest to recognize as it was also worn throughout the TV series in the 1960's. The bodysuit was made out of bluish-gray cloth. The mask and cape were leather of black-bluish hue. The yellow and black bat emblem centered squarely on the chest. Batman also wore his yellow utility belt to retrieve gadgets as needed. The Adam West suit has the distinction of being the original Batman costume. MICHAEL KEATON BATMAN COSTUME When we next saw Batman, it was 23 years later in 1989 with Michael Keaton. The new Batman costume was noticeably more of a body armor all in black with the exception of the yellow and black bat emblem and the yellow utility belt. The body armor took on a rippled muscular abdominal mid-section giving this movie Batman some resemblance to the image of a superbly muscular comic book Batman. A very noticeable trait of this Batman costume was the limited movement. Batman's fluid moves were not readily achievable unlike in the comic books. Somersaulting and acrobatic moves were out of the question because of the suit's rigidity. In fact, the actor was barely able to turn his head to look around. BATMAN AND ROBIN COSTUME (a.k.a. George Clooney's Batman) Batman's costume generally remained the same in Batman Returns (1992) and Batman Forever (1995). The next major changes came in 1997 when George Clooney starred in Batman & Robin. The movie was mocked by fans often citing Arnold Schwarzenegger's inability to clearly


say his lines and the disconnected plot. Many observed that it was more loyal to the campy 1960's Batman which still had plenty of followers. The bat suit took on a more prominent armored look with noticeable shoulder pads and breast plate. Additionally, the bat emblem on the chest eliminated the color yellow and took on a dark, black-on-black patch. Lastly, to further mock the movie, this Batman suit displayed nipples. Nipples! This version is often described as nefariously fetish of all the Batman costumes. THE DARK KNIGHT: BATMAN BEGINS COSTUME In 2005, eight years after Batman & Robin, another Batman movie was released. By this time, fans were so disappointed with the 1997 movie that they were ready for a "reboot", now an accepted term for a do-over of a badly made movie. It's not a sequel. This time, Christian Bale was the new star and the bat suit evolved some more. The Dark Knight costume did away with any resemblance of a human torso and became a true armor. The bat emblem remains from the last version as black-on-black. In fact, the entire armor is in black with the exception Batman's utility belt. However, it too changed to a more metallic dull gold finish. The new armor design, though recognizable as Batman, signals a move away from the campy 1960's Batman to that of the darker persona first depicted in Michael Keaton's 1989 portrayal. That movie revived the interest in Batman. In the end, this could very well be the right direction for DC Comics since they're falling behind in the tally of blockbuster superhero movies.
