4. Batman Forever suit

Worn by: Chris O'Donnell

Dick Grayson's introduction in Batman Forever was a huge step for the character since he hadn't been adapted in live-action since the 1966 Batman TV series. Superhero productions had changed quite a bit since then, so there was anticipation to see what his Robin suit would look like.

Some consider the fact that he made his debut in the Schumacher movies (and not the Burton ones) a bit of a disappointment, as it meant his suit would have to have the over-chiselled physiques and Bat-Nipples that the Batsuits have. While this was very true and the suit did have all of those features, it looked really well (and not enough people are willing to acknowledge that). It also found a nice way of paying tribute to the comics by replicating the red, green, and yellow color scheme but with duller tones to match the tone of the film, giving it a purple, green, and gold hue instead.

The sharper R felt right for the edgier portrayal of the character while the Batman-esque gauntlets was a unique touch that we don't appreciate enough. The curled, Dracula-like collar on the cape sounds like a horrid idea on paper, but Chris O'Donnell pulled it off well, and the larger domino mask looked great (without looking like a false face like it did in '40s serial).

This was a really nice, modern interpretation of the Robin suit and it still holds up well.
