If you look closely at the costume, it looks either very old or very amateurish. It's put together with rivets and elastics.

This is probably not the finished costume but either something pre-CGI or just an 'intro' costume that will later be modified or changed.

From the article:

"...it is thought to be a stuntman seen on Friday afternoon rather than Twilight star Robert Pattinson, who will portray the dual role of Bruce Wayne and the Batman."

If you haven't seen the promo video which was released a few days ago, it's the same suit in the promo video. rivets, elastics, etc.

Yeah....I did see that video.  

I was just thinking that the stuntman's suit might be a cruder version of it than the one Robert Pattinson will wear.  You mentioned that it looked very old or amateurish and not finished.......this could be the reason.

That just might be the case. Someone seems a little passionate about it, at least...

The suit itself looks cool, but the cowel bothers me. Looks like something a cosplayer would make. I’m doubting it’s the final version.

I don't know, the basic elements of the suit (rivets, looking like football padding) are still all in the promo video...so I don't know why they'd release a promo video if it's not the real suit.

Weird.

Like I said, I think they are going for a very old-school vibe but honestly, I don't care all that much.

I just hope it's  somewhere in the ballpark of the Nolan movies (which is the standard by which all Batman movies should be judged by) and not anything like the abomination that BvS was.

I am still wanting to see a fabric / molded composite cowl that would allow the wearer to easily remove the mask like a hoodie as Batman does in the Animated Series.

Make the neck and part of the head fabric based and the face part molded to have the strong features. It would allow for head movement as well.

Otherwise the look of what I see doesnt bother me, I rather like the unpolished functional version like it is an early design to be later perfected.

George Clooney's suit had nipples.... Never forget.

I still say the Batman movie with Heath Ledger as the Joker is THE quintessential Batman movie.  Heath Ledger was exactly what I thought the Joker would be. Just perfection.

What can't they just make a classic Neal Adams Batman film? It's what we all want. Why can't they just make a blue and gray suit not made of ballistic material?
