It’s only been a few weeks since we saw Batman’s new suit in the trailer for Detective Comics #27, but already, fans are wondering whether or not this new look will stick around. The biggest change is that Batman is no longer using solid colors but instead incorporates a camouflage pattern in his attire. This pattern has been seen on soldiers’ uniforms in World War I, and it was first used in Batman comics way back in 1940. So, it’s safe to assume that the Caped Crusader is either relishing in or protecting us from the great outdoors. Or maybe he just enjoys playing dress-up.
Camouflage Is the Fashion Trend for 2020
For years, we’ve seen Batman in classic black and white or brightly colored suits with solid patterns. However, as the coronavirus pandemic swept the world, fashion insiders started noticing a change in style. Since people couldn’t leave their homes and were limited on what they could wear, people started paying more attention to their appearance.
It started with the simple but elegant dresses and the stunning red and white outfits from the royal houses of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Shortly thereafter, people started experimenting with camouflage clothing for everyday wear, and designers started incorporating this theme into their creations. This trend has not only carried over into menswear but has also made its way into kids’ clothing.
Of course, the use of camouflage in fashion is not new. During the world wars, soldiers would wear outfits that consisted of various patterns to confuse the enemy and protect themselves. However, these were military uniforms, and the fashion industry has only recently started incorporating this classic look. Camouflage is seen as a way of life for people in these trying times, and it also provides a way of escape from the restrictions that the pandemic has put in place. So, it is a style that will be in trend for the foreseeable future.
It’s hard to say whether or not Batman will continue to look the same because it is such a well-established look. It would be easy for him to keep wearing this pattern during these trying times but transition into normal clothing once the world returns to some semblance of normality. However, since this is a look that he has worn before, it is quite possible that he will continue to incorporate this pattern into his casual wear. For now, it is quite trendy to sport camouflage while awaiting the end of the pandemic.
Not So Fast, Mr. Freeze!
Aside from changing the way he looks, Batman also made a fairly significant change to the way he sounds. In the trailer for Detective Comics #27, you can hear that Batman has been altered by the Joker, and it is clear that he has lost his voice. As the Joker states, it is the latter’s “voice that you need to be afraid of.”
This is not the first time that Batman’s voice has been altered by external forces. In Detective Comics #27, the Joker uses a synthesizer to turn Batman’s voice into a horrible screech that terrifies the people that he is trying to protect. In the same issue, the Joker reveals that he had been experimenting with this technique for years, and it is clear that he is quite accomplished at it. So, this is yet another example of how the Joker has been influencing Batman’s world.
It is quite an ironic turn of events, considering that Batman is the greatest vocal eater of them all. In fact, he has eaten the words of others, and he has often quoted fictional characters and movies in conversation. He has even gone so far as to ingest poison just to save the lives of those he cares about. So, it comes as no great surprise that the Joker has been able to twist Batman’s words into murderous sounds.
No More Solid Colors!
Even before the pandemic, people were paying close attention to fashion. However, these were mainly inspired by celebrities and the royals and not everyday individuals. As a result, these fans did not sportcamouflage but instead stuck with the safe colors like black, white, and red. This has resulted in many iconic Batman outfits remaining in trend even now when compared to other styles from the period.
It’s clear that people are fascinated with Batman’s style and costume changes. Even now, when people are getting back to fashion and their “regular” clothes, they are picking up on this theme and incorporating it into their outfits. For example, if you check out TikTok right now, you will see that there is a trend called “Batman Varsity Jacket.” Fans have been wearing this style for the last year, and it still pops up on TikTok even today. This is just one of the many examples of how much influence the Joker has had on Batman’s style, and it is quite obvious that he is not finished yet.
What is your opinion on Batman’s new look?
It’s only been a few weeks since Batman’s new look was revealed in the trailer for Detective Comics #27, and we have already seen multiple outfits that reference this new look. So, it is safe to assume that you have an opinion on this matter already. Unfortunately, we do not know what Robert Pattinson thinks about Batman’s new look, but we can assume that he is not a fan. This is mainly due to the fact that he does not wear costumes and rarely shows his emotions in public.
While we do not know what Robert Pattinson thinks about Batman’s new look, it is quite clear that this is not a look that he enjoys wearing. He has been seen wearing hoodies and oversized T-shirts in previous promotional photos as a way of expressing his disdain for this new look. It is quite an interesting contrast between the way that Batman is presented in films and the way he is in real life. The irony is that despite his fame and fortune, Batman actually has very little in the way of vanity. He does not like to show off his good looks but instead keeps them hidden behind his intimidating persona. So, while we may see the Joker’s influence on fashion and style in general, it is quite clear that it is Batman who has been wearing him the most.
