So, I was aimlessly scouring the ‘net yesterday to find something cool to post and I stumbled on pictures of RoboCop’s new suit from the reboot that’s busy filming at the moment.
My first impression: NONONO! What the fuck have they done?
Why on Earth did they mess with the iconic suit that made RoboCop the intimidating badass that he is? WHY WHY WHY?
(*I am considering doing a snotty, crying “Why don’t you leave RoboCop alone” YouTube video*)
All we can hope for is the fact that there is going to be a lot of after-the-fact CG touching up and that this new-fangled Robo-Batsuit doesn’t look as tacky and embarrassing as it does in these pictures.
Look, I have all faith in director Jose Padiha, the same guy who brought us the surprisingly good “Elite Squad” and “Elite Squad: The Enemy Within” movies and, for all intents and purposes, the remake of ED-209 looks completely awesome – but, ja, that RoboCop suit is shit.
Unless of course, Hollywood is into recycling costumes now, in which case they have a costume for a Mass Effect movies, and another Batman reboot if you add a cape.
Truth be told, I’m a little less excited about the RoboCop reboot now than I was two days ago.
Please prove me wrong Jose.
