A Knight in Shining.. Err.. Dark Armor

Excuse me while I indulge my tomboy needs and gush about this article, that breaks down the design of the new Batman costume/suit, for the new movie The Dark Knight (sorry folks, not due out until 2008).

Jeff Jensen of Entertainment Weekly wrote a little article on the history and reasons for the designs of the iconic superhero.

For example, did you ever realize in the first four Batman movies, the dark knight hardly turned his head? Whenever he had to look to the side or behind him, his whole body would turn. The reason is, the mask was part of the suit... it was mostly designed that way to keep the iconic stature of the hero, definitely not for comfort value.

You can read up on the rest of his suit here.
