I’d like to replicate the drifter outfit. Has anybody found a similar hoodie? Looks like it has a sherpa/teddy layer inside but i cant something similar.
There's some more detailed shots of the outfits in this clip!

Here's all of the art from Glyn Dillon's post:

glyn__dillon_278455644_700009834580108_2573844678513153933_n.jpg glyn__dillon_278390660_1167453917417812_5779889146886107394_n.jpg glyn__dillon_278483862_539664557508209_6691628687796724793_n.jpg glyn__dillon_278458602_139485968597669_7859370047998499723_n.jpg glyn__dillon_278400161_2161422254007127_6346393058071222457_n.jpg glyn__dillon_278599823_549466259844933_7755249275222987873_n.jpg

That art without the mask is based on this picture of Robert Pattinson at the Dior Winter 2019-2020 men’s show in Paris on January 19, 2019:

Also, Sam Williams posted some larger versions of the gauntlet renders from his Instagram on his ArtStation:

A few notes:
  • The first image seems to suggest that the Fidlock V-Buckle part is a cast piece, which explains some of the discrepancies it has with the real V-Buckles and the lack of any black or shiny finish on it that the V-Buckles on the holster have.
  • Weirdly, the "R Gauntlet-2 Handguard" piece in the same image seems to have the text on the inside mirrored.
  • The third image confirms that the vambraces with undeployed grapple launchers use a different version that's curved to sit more flush, while the deployed launchers are straight
And I managed to find an Indigo with The Art of The Batman in stock for pick up, so I got it early. Here's some rough shots taken with a phone:

No shots of the Drifter backpack, I'm afraid.

Edit: a few more:

And some notes:
  • The sketches definitely seem like they're supposed to be done in-universe by Bruce, especially with the way things like the contact lenses are described as if they have to actually function. Alfred is even mentioned a few times in comments like "check kitchen . alfreds knife . collection...." for the Batarang and "can alfred source dials?" for the sticky bomb gun.
  • Thanks to the "grip cast from existing model" note for the sticky bomb gun, I was able to find that the concept art for it was based on the Umarex (UX) Tornado/Brodax/Elite Force H8R Gen2/T4E TR50:
5.8199_Tornado_links.jpg 0000428_ux-brodax-177-caliber-bb-gun-revolver-air-pistol-umarex-airguns.png 2.6446_H8R_links_ret.jpg 0003809_t4e-tr50-50-cal-paintball-pistol-revolver.jpeg

nnnmnn.png 4H4k3YxH.jpg
  • If you look at the actual prop, though, it seems to me that the Umarex gun was only used for reference and that part on the prop was actually custom made:

  • The adrenaline shot uses this picture for the text on the side:
image (1).jpeg BiXkrW6R copy.jpg
  • The prop used in the movie has different text on it, though. You can see it in the close-up when Batman is injecting it into the port on his leg next to one of the holster straps.
  • It seems I war right about the canister with the circuit board-looking stuff being for the contact lens, and it also seems to mention something about it being stored on the belt.
  • The colored concept art pieces are 100% Matthew Savage's style, so expect to see those soon on his website and Instagram.

Here's something a little interesting that I noticed when watching the movie a couple of weeks ago, but didn't have a good image of until Cristian Diaz posted this nice screenshot from the DC FanDome 2021 behind-the-scenes footage on the Facebook group a little while ago:

278231779_7403354226406518_4540095371928129193_n.jpg

For the scene where he takes his cowl off, they made a special version the suit with extra detail under the gauntlets. As some in the group pointed out, this is probably supposed to be part of the grapple launcher mechanism, with the lines being for gas or something. I highly doubt that's normally under the suit, because there's just supposed to be some hook-and-loop fasteners there. However, there is this small detail on the vambrace that looks like it could be the (kinda odd) Picatinny rail showing through, especially on the first (inaccurate) Prime 1 Studio statue:

Screen Shot 2022-04-18 at 1.57.34 AM.png mmtbm-01dx_a07_a_bonus_arm_parts_09.jpeg

And I think this is concept art of the detail:

A few other random things I noticed when rewatching The Batman a couple of times:
  • When he's putting on the wingsuit, the buckles that connect the two sides kinda looked like they were based on Fidlock V-Buckles a little.
  • When he gets up after using the parachute, the straps on his back are gone, so those must be for the cape.
  • He manually retracts the grapple launcher a second time after saving Kenzie.
  • Some have said that the holster is empty for most of the scenes where Robert Pattinson is in the suit, but he at least had it for the scene on top of Gotham Square Garden. It's clearly visible when he's looking up at the helicopter.

A few rough shots from the special features:

2579D421-F945-410C-8626-F7E4C850C972.png D4BDC4B3-6FD3-4AA7-A030-16C212A9E11E.png BA79F966-E1F7-406A-B900-8AF5ACB8CEE1.png C09148B1-0919-47D9-B5A6-F79130340C7B.png
Just the cape and cowl.

Edit: the grapple launcher mechanism from the Iceberg Lounge was practical, but seems to stick out a bit:

Edit 2: skull cap:

BTW, kinda suspect that we’ve only seen one grapple launcher mechanism on one arm and a different one on the other. Makes you wonder if they actually did have a different mechanism for each arm for whatever reason.

Finally a view of the skullcap!

It looks like we have a picture of the shirt/clips assembly worn under the jacket/chest piece for Batman. There's probably a better quality somewhere, but I'm not sure what feature this is from.

In one of the special features, there is a view of the side of the grapple that faces the gauntlet, which I haven't seen in any other shots. You can see the hinge of the handle that allows it to swivel, the linkages of the rail, and one of the darts in the grapple.

I haven’t actually seen any official confirmation here, but I’m pretty sure at least that the clip pieces on the shoulder pads here connect to the cape so that it doesn’t fall over his shoulders and sits on the suit correctly, right?

Yeah, I think they have the cape connected to the Fidlock pieces for most shots, but you can sometimes see that the pieces are exposed with nothing connected to them.

Robert mentions that the first time the grapple was used was the only time it ever worked perfectly. Perhaps they made the simpler Taxi Driver style so they could keep filming without issues.

View attachment 1565703

On the "hero version", the gun seems to actually fold below the reel to wrap around the grapple in the retracted position, thus sitting more out of the way. Also, the "hero version" uses a shorter track since the mechanism swings out at the front.

View attachment 1565681 View attachment 1565678 View attachment 1565680

Looking back at the image from the Iceberg Lounge, I believe that the rail actually goes back farther than the gauntlet, but was filmed to hide this. The gun is rigidly attached to the sliding bar, so when it starts in the retracted position, it must be sticking far down his arm.
Would you mind sharing the source of the gif? really interesting mechanism. Thanks!

Never mind saw the earlier post. Thanks anyway!

Yeah he manually retracts the grapple most of the time
