LOVE IT

The David Finch's artwork for Batman: The Return looks soo good. And the yellow oval compliments it so well.

I do like the design but to me it's too similar to the earth one deign by gary frank. http://dcu.blog.dccomics.com/files/2009/12/batman_fnl3.jpg

That said I like the grey/silver belt. However Finch also drew this picture:

Here batman suddenly has a yellow belt!!! So which one of the three do you guys like most? For me its a tie between gary frank's design and finch's (silver belt) design.

Good catch. I think I like Finch's the best though. The one with the silver belt.

I love David Finch's yellow emblem and silver belt design. In my opinion, you cannot put too much colour on Batman's costume. A splash of yellow on the emblem is good enough.

So I guess it's almost confirmed that if there are going 2 Batmen, Bruce Wayne will be wearing the yellow emblem, silver belt design and Dick Grayson will most likely stick with the black emblem, yellow belt design. Nice!!!

Yellow Oval. Classic. Batman's "TAILORS" ARE THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS. There may be 3 or 4 Batmen in Gotham, adding to the legend that Batman is everywhere at anythime in Gotham and with the Birds of Prey settled there as well, Crime has no chance.

Every action evokes a counter reaction. One of Gotham's criminals will surly form a team of his own and challenge batman's team.

I'll be the outcast. I think sometimes "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." While I love that they finally got rid of the outside underwear... I'm really not a fan of the yellow symbol. It makes no sense to me. Yes, I know the fake reasoning behind it...It's to give thugs something to aim at instead of the face...but it's not scary. Batman uses the Bat as a symbol of fear to strike terror into his enemies, a giant yellow Bat is not scary. It's Iconic, to be sure, but it's silly to me, reminds me too much of 1989 Tim Burton Batman (which I love) but it's just we've moved forward, we've modernized Batman. I think it's a step backwards and a mistake. In the animated series he goes from the yellow oval to the Black Bat symbol in the last season and Justice League. In the recent Red hood film, the flash back he has the yellow oval then when we get to modern times has the Black Bat, this rings true to me as well it's old. It makes no sense for him to go back to it, feels gimmicky like Wonder Woman's new costume, not an evolution but a cheap tactic to be like LOOK WE CHANGED THE BATSUIT BUY MORE ISSUES. No sir, I don't like it. I bet you a year from now they go back to the black Bat Symbol.

Just saying your never see a yellow bat oval in Nolan's films for a reason. Evil or Very Mad

I can live with the new costume much easier than the fact that there will be two Batmen. Morrison's had a hardon for this for years and it's stupid. Batman is an urban legend in Gotham, so two of them running around will blow that myth wide open.

Then there is the fact that Bruce would stick to the darker suit anyway, he redefined himself in Batman #516 and has never looked back. This whole thing is ridiculous.

If Finch's writing is as great as his art, then the Dark Knight could be the best Bat book out there!

The artwork in the original post looks to me like a cross between Mike Mignola and Tim Sale. A world apart form the cover of Batman #700.

I'm hating this even more. It looks like a tacky jump suit.

Sorry, but what does that mean?

And, in general, I like it. Aside from the bat symbol on the utility belt and the raised bat symbol on his chest (some of the same problems I had with the Superman Returns costume), I totally love it. And the other two things I think I can deal with.

Red Square is in Russia. Russia's well known for being damn cold.

It could be a thermal suit.

Oh, I thought he was saying Red Square was a location in Gotham, but I had no idea what he was talking about lol. Yeah, if it's Red Square then it could totally be a thermal suit.

Well, considering there will now officially be a proper Batmen of All Nations, Bruce needs less of a "Shadowy protector of Gotham" suit, and more of a "Superhero Leader" suit.

It's pretty logical, actually, as Bruce will be turning the Batman idea into a brand, he needs a symbol like the yellow oval to make the Batman more visible - even if Dick still strikes from the shadows.

Besides, when he goes abroad, he needs that yellow oval, coz if he was his usual, stealthy self, people might just think he's Sam Fisher or some rubbish like that.

I have to agree. Frank's design is a bit retro looking. Something about the grey jumpsuit.. But Finch's design has totally won my heart. It pops, and it's definitely a great design for Batman's return. It's classy but not too dramatic, and they kept the modern colors, and disregarded the weird blue-ish hue they like to give Batman.

I think Finch got it right.

Seeing the costume in the titles now, I'm even more in love with the costume than ever - especially Batman: The Return - Finch is becoming one of my favorites.

Actually.. the more I look at it, the more the utility belt "buckle" bothers me.
I feel like they are advertising the bat symbol too much. And since the yellow, elevated bat symbol is so prominent, I think they killed it by adding the same symbol to his belt.

Am I the only one in mild discomfort?

I thought I mentioned it here, but I guess I didn't...I don't like that part, either. It reminds me of the Superman Returns belt buckle, where it was just the Superman shield, which I hated.
