See the evolution of Batman's costume in film and TV

Batman turns 75 this month, so it's altogether appropriate that director Zack Snyder should rock the internet with his new take on the Caped Crusader and the iconic Batmobile. Ben Affleck looks every bit the brooding superhero in the new photo, and the Batmobile already promises to be the beast of a machine fans have been trained to expect since at least 1989. Still, 75 years is a long time, and Batman has had a particularly storied history on TV and in cinema — with plenty of hits and misses along the way. Taking a look back at just a handful of those classic looks should prepare us for what Snyder has in store for 2016. Now we only wonder what all the other superheroes in Batman vs. Superman will look like.
