Costuming The Dark Knight
The skinny on Batman and Joker's new duds.
With pre-production undehttp://filesharingtalk.com/vb3/synapse_kt8c/editor/createlink.gifway on The Dark Knight, the rumor mill has been busy churning out buzz on all aspects of the Batman Begins sequel, including costuming.
Christian Bale's Batman will sport a modified and more "fabricky" outfit than the version he wore in Begins. The site expects the costume will still be rubber but sleeker than the version seen in the previous film.
The Joker's garb will be "less cartoony", according to BoF's source. "[Since this film's Joker is] much more dark, sinister, and threatening, his costume is very much going to reflect that."
BoF's insider added, "It's not going to be a suit that is tailored for him, but more something he acquired. I mean, what tailor would actually make a suit for The Joker?"
The Dark Knight begins filming in March of next year for a 2008 release.
