One of the first theories in regards to
I think it's safe to say that this Batman is directly linked to the police and I don't know what to think about this.
Since the announcement/reveal of this new look, I've honestly tried not to think about it, because whenever I did, I ended up going to a pretty cynical place (surprise!) and didn't want to actually come to terms with the potential of hating this direction come June, but now I'm actively trying to fight off those thoughts. It's hard to really tell what to think, as it's either genius or just plain fucking stupid to reveal something so big, only to give such little detail to back it up. This whole thing is just frustrating to think about.
I said it earlier in the week, but I'll say it again: there's probably no room for middle ground here. This is either going to be surprisingly awesome, or they're jumping the shark into oblivion. A lot depends on whose in that suit and what the execution is like, and it's going to be a long time before we get any of that. I made some jokes on Twitter about Jim Gordon being in the suit, but now I'm really starting to get nervous, because if you tell me Jim Gordon is running around as mechsuit Batman, my gut reaction is "that sounds fucking stupid."
So pardon me, while I sit here until FCBD at the very earliest, repeating "it could be good" over and and over again, because I'm going to need the reassurance.
