The outpouring of happiness at the news that Ben Affleck's Batman will finally wear a blue suit in live-action in The Flash was swiftly offset by criticism of the costume.
Fans have been clamoring for years for the iconic black and white look to be brought to life on television, so we shouldn't be surprised if a few people immediately began tearing it to pieces from the minute it was confirmed the dream was becoming a reality. In an odd twist to the usual trolling formula, critics of Affleck's Dark Knight are comparing his harness-like duds to a Bat-Bra.
Given the fact that the Flash has been in development for over a decade, never mind the controversies surrounding star Ezra Miller, or even the confirmation that it is poised to wipe the SnyderVerse clean once and for all. Haters are always gonna hate, so director Andy Muschietti's epic was always in the firing line.
You want Ben Affleck's Batman back in the DC Universe after he announced his retirement and then rescinded it for the Snyder Cut? Sure, here he is. The blue outfit you've been wanting for so long? Yes, you may also have Michael Keaton returning for the first time in 30 years.
Nah, scratch that, we don't like it anymore. This is how the superhero world works, and it will continue to work this way for as long as the world continues to change.
