In case you don’t remember, Batman’s first design was drastically different than his current look. In his original design, Batman was sporting batwings, yellow hair and a red suit with a gold belt. Interestingly, the original version didn’t have the iconic Bat symbol. In fact, the original suit has a day and night difference when compared to the Batsuit Ben Affleck wore for Justice League.
The similarities between the two looks are striking on almost every level. From the golden yellow hair to the red and gold costume, the only thing the character is missing is batwings to make the whole thing perfect. Of course, it’s hard to imagine that the costume designers purposefully made the character look just like the first version of Batman but this is hilarious nonetheless. It’s also interesting to see how far Batman’s costume design has come over the years.
