Look Ma, No nipples!

Batman Begins: Christian Bale as Batman. Posted by Hello

New trailer up at http://batmanbegins.warnerbros.com/#

The New trailer is out for Batman Begins and it's looking pretty good so far. We get to see a lot more of Batman himself than in the first teaser and it definitely looks to be a serious take on the caped crusader. In fact it looks maybe a bit too serious for the people who like some comedy with their action/super-hero movies, we shall see.

On to the look of the costume and Gotham city. Maybe I'm in the minority but I think that the right way to do a Batman movie is to use the rubber/armored costume, Though i wish they would streamline the cowl a bit more. I know, I know. "But what about those cool fan films with the traditional costume?" I think that works for those things but lets be realistic, a person would need at least some protection if he was constantly jumping on and around buildings and fighting people with guns on a regular basis. Hell, the tights wouldn't even keep him from getting scrapped knees. Now that's just plain pathetic and embarrassing when a big time super hero falls and scrapes something. As long as they make him move with the speed and grace that makes Batman what he is then i will have no problem with the suit.

Gotham also looks to be slanted towards the realistic. Now while I like the take on Gotham city in the first Batman movie( Dark, Decayed,Scary), the subsequent versions just got ridiculous and plain stupid. I mean how many buildings do you need in one city that have to be supported by half naked muscle men( Joel Shitmaker!) Not that there's anything wrong with that, It's just unnessecary. Anyway hope it rocks! JMHO
