First look at Batman's new suit in THE DARK KNIGHT

Credit Ain't It Cool News for scoring the public's first gander (courtesy of Entertainment Weekly) of the new Batman suit that will be seen in The Dark Knight, next year's sequel to 2005's Batman Begins.

First thoughts? I'm kinda liking it, but it seems too "specially manufactured". One of the things that I liked about Batman Begins so much is that it shows Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) going through the process of building up Batman's equipment and arsenal, and rich as he is it was like he had to scrape the bottom of the barrel for some of the things he used (like how the Tumbler became the Batmobile). The only items we saw him fabricate on his own were the Bat-throwing stars and the design for the cowl (which he had to contract with an overseas company to build the parts for that). But I suppose that with Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman) now heading operations at Wayne Enterprises, that there's all kinds of good stuff that Bruce can have R & D cook up without bringing undue suspicion.

Now if we can just get a really really really good look at the Joker from this movie...
