Guess Grayson's Battle for the Cowl turned out to be a bit of a hollow victory...

This topic has been pretty thrashed out. I much prefer the black bat-emblem to the yellow so-called target, but I'm relieved they didn't go for Schumacher-level style changes. Heavens! We could have seen the return of batnipples or the inexplicably bad, blue and silver armoured look.
Give it time- in a year or two the black bat will return with some incoming artist or dramatic editorial/ narrative shift to reflect a return to Bruce's dark side when he retreats from the bat family in order to please fans who want the solo brooding bat back or whatever, and we'll have this whole discussion all over again.
On a side note, I'm glad to see Bruce return but hope that Dick remains in the cowl. It's time these characters were allowed to flex and grow. Bruce's stoicism has been static for too long- he needs to embrace his wider family and relish what they bring to their shared crusade. Writers, please hook him up romantically with someone solid, suitable, and sustainable a la Lois Lane and Superman. Lord knows the man deserves some joy in his life.
I'm so tired of Channing... I don't think he has the chops to bring a beloved comic book character to life. The guy can't act beyond looking pretty or confused and when it comes to Captain America, I want something more than him playing Duke in blue shiny tights.
