Why don’t we have real-life crime fighting superheroes? Well, reality is probably the first thing that stands out for me. Sure, there’s probably a billionaire somewhere who could be Batman, but if you’re 30 and already a billionaire, that 25 minutes would probably be better spent on the phone with your lawyer to discuss non-extradition countries after your wife is found with her head and body in two separate places.
As revealed in a Fashionista article about the costumes of TV and movie superheroes, it takes roughly 25 minutes for Ben Affleck to get into his Batsuit for next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice — and that’s with assistance. “It does involve multiple costumers,” admitted costume designer Michael Wilkinson, adding that turning the actor into the DC Entertainment superhero is “not the sort of thing that I could just sit in Ben’s trailer and he gets into it himself. It’s a six-handed operation.” Creating the new Batsuit, revealed Wilkinson, included input from Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder, who apparently wanted to address one of the problems with Batmen from previous movies: namely, the Dark Knight’s inability to turn his head. “It’s a very important thing to Zack that the Batsuit would be comfortable and very flexible but then would be able to perform in a very natural and forceful way,” said Wilkinson, adding that the rigidity of the cowl and neck-pieces was “one of the first things that Snyder mentioned to me in one of our initial meetings.” This time around, promised Wilkinson, “a lot of incredible engineering went into the development of the new black cowl.”
So basically if Batman was real, the police and ambulance would be at the crime scene first, then Batman would be tasered and shot in the face when he showed up because he wears a hoodie and is usually unarmed.
