Batman Forever (1995) (part 13 of 14)

Down in the remnants of the Batcave, Bruce asks Alfred if all his Batsuits have been destroyed. Alfred replies that the only functioning costume left is an untested prototype that has “sonar modifications”, whatever that may mean. Bruce yanks the tarp off this untested prototype, leading to yet another suiting up sequence.

Oh yes. You know it’s coming: The lingering and completely superfluous butt shot.

Look at it! Look at it! Can’t you just feel your sense of self eroding?

Now Batman’s fully suited up. Honestly, I can understand why he’s never worn this costume out in public before. It looks pretentiously retro-futuristic, it’s not intimidating at all (which is supposed to be the whole point of Batman’s costume), and it’s just plain terrible. It’s also partially silver. Silver!
