BvS Robin costume rant *NO SPOILERS*

Postby ZANIACK » Mar 20th, 2016, 5:38 am

Way to start infuriating me in the middle of escalating hype, Zack Snyder. I noticed that the abysmal Robin suit hasn't been changed in the final proper trailer for BvS since it was first revealed in June 2015.

The short sleeves are very stupid, but the short-shorts are beyond f*cking absurd. Paradoxical barely begins to describe it. The color is so desaturated to presumably make Robin fit into this universe as well as possible, but that's completely undermined by having such silly old holdovers from a bygone era of Batman. Unbelievably stupid and ridiculous to have bare legs in what's supposed to be a state-of-the-art combat suit.

You done f*cked it up, Snyder. F*ck you and anyone else who is dumb enough to think this isn't repugnant. Just Pathetic.
Please help improve Arkham Knight before it's too late.

I think it's a cool throwback to old classic Robin costumes from the 40's - 60's. Plus it's hugely likely they'll upgrade it once a new Robin comes into play.

I don't understand rants such as these with knowing context. Sure, we all have mentioned something along the lines of 'really? would robin wear shorts to battle?'

For all we know a number of things could happen. Examples:

-Dick was the Robin who died. Dick as we know had a gymnast inspired Robin suit at the start before upgrading it. Perhaps he never made it to the next upgrade because he died.

-It is a sort of onesie in which Robin was wearing reinforced armour for both upper and lower body underneath the costume.

We just don't know. Chill your batty.

Geez just stop. You might not like the costume, but is a costume of a comic book character in short shorts really worth saying "POW you" to somebody?
