FIRST LOOK: Batman’s new comic suit reminds us of *shudder* Batman & Robin

July 20th, 2020 by Marc Comments

DC Comics have revealed Batman’s new costume which he’s set to don this October.

The suit (above) appears on Batman #100’s variant cover by artist Jorge Jimenez who also designed it.

The suit will appear after the current Joker War event comes to an end and is a BIG departure from any of the hero’s previous suits with the large amounts of silver reminding us of the suit George Clooney wore in the disasterous 1997 Batman & Robin movie from the late Joel Schumacher.

“In Batman #100, ‘The Joker War’ comes to a city-shattering conclusion as Batman battles The Joker in a brutal, no-holds-barred final duel! This is a fight 80 years in the making, and its outcome won’t just change Batman’s life – it will change Gotham City for years to come!” reads DC’s description of the story. “Plus, catch the first glimpse of the new villain known as Ghost-Maker! And after the senses-shattering conclusion of ‘The Joker War’ come a pair of short stories that will chart what’s to come in Gotham City and Batman.”

So there you go, the new Batman. I want to hear your thoughts, gang.

Batman #100 is due out October 6th.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
