The Dark Knight Returns …Without Nipples

With the sequel to Batman Begins slated to hit theatres only one year, one month and three days from today, the slow drip of information about The Dark Knight has begun.

Thanks to Entertainment Weekly,,20042739,00.html we all get to have a good first look at the Batman’s new costume/armor.

At first thought it’s oddly reminiscent of Batman’s battle armor that he wore during his final duel with Superman in the last issue of the Dark Knight Returns. Perhaps it’s the lighting but Batman’s suit looks more grey than black. We’d prefer it darker but we like the funky weapons and gadgets that come with the suit.

Upon viewing the picture, Mrs. FBW asked if this suit comes with the “bat-nipples” a la Batman Forever and Batman and Robin (director Joel Schumacher’s lasting legacy to the Bat-franchise—he must be so proud).

To the best of our knowledge, the Dark Knight suit does NOT come with nipples and we have no comment vis-a-via any alleged Bat-codpiece. However for the record, Mrs. FBW asked us to point out she was NOT hoping for the inclusion of bat-nipples on this new and improved Batman but rather she (like so many of us) was deeply disturbed at the addition of areolas on the armor.

Meanwhile, here’s the upshot on the Dark Knight from Warner Brothers:

Visionary filmmaker Christopher Nolan's sequel to the highly successful "Batman Begins," sees Batman (Christian Bale) as he raises the stakes in his war on crime. With the help of Lieutenant Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) and District Attorney Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart), Batman sets out to dismantle the remaining criminal organizations that plague the city streets. The partnership proves to be effective, but they soon find themselves prey to a reign of chaos unleashed by a rising criminal mastermind known to the terrified citizens of Gotham as 'The Joker' (Heath Ledger).

This looks promising. Stay tuned.
