Robocop Remake: Fans Find Robo’s Suit A Little Too Batman-LikeBy: Chris Crum - September 17, 2012
New set photos from the Robocop remake have emerged, showing off the titular character’s new suit. Fans have obviously taken to Twitter to share their reactions, and from what I’ve seen, they tend to lean toward the negative, or at least skeptical.
Many are finding a striking similarity to Batman’s suit from the Christopher Nolan Dark Knight films. That may have been fine for Batman, but I don’t get the impression that everybody’s sold on such a look for their favorite crime fighting cyborg.
Here’s a sampling of what the Twitterverse has to offer on the subject:
The new Robocop is here, a bit slimmer than the original. He must not lifting the weights Peter Weller’s outfit did http://t.co/6linGVm3
New ‘Robocop’ looks lame. Whatchu think? http://t.co/WKPS1zBY
Real talk: I can’t tell if Robocop is here to save Gotham or just attend an AFI concert. http://t.co/Vx8yZA3D
New Robocop costume looks like Batman met Iron Man
The new RoboCop outfit looks dreadful. The original is just pure class.
The new Robocop outfit for the remake looks so shit http://t.co/ILqw2980
Not everybody thinks Robocop looks like Batman, however:
Who does this new Robocop think he is? Snake Eyes?
