Does the Batman franchise need another reboot? Maybe not, though it certainly helps that actor Robert Pattinson, beyond just Twilight fame mind you, plays the broody caped crusader in 2022’s latest movie, released on 3 March. If you’ve yet to catch The Batman — the movie that is — in cinemas, this is your chance to gear up in style, while watching our anti-hero take down Gotham’s finest villains. Ahead, we’ve got a slew of shoes, watches, bags, and even a bat-shaped pizza to get hyped about.
1. PUMA x Batman
Sportswear brand PUMA presents a moody collection worthy of our gritty hero and the city he swears to protect, bringing together elements of Batman, his Batmobile, and the Bat emblem across multiple footwear styles and apparel. The limited-edition collection is made in collaboration with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC, and features clothes and sportswear including hoodies, T-shirts, T7 track suits, shorts, leggings, hats, and more.
The shoes, though, will only be launching later this year, but they’re worth the wait. Of these, the iconic PUMA Suede stands out for its black silhouette with red accents, complete with graphic motifs of bats along its suede upper. Most of the other footwear pay homage to Batman with a mostly-black theme, of the RS-X, Mayze, and Court Rider styles in the covert colourway and accented with red. There’s also a chunky Fierce 2 style inspired by Selina Kyle, or Catwoman.
$22 –$220, in adult and kids sizing. Available from 19 March, with footwear releasing later this year, at PUMA.COM, PUMA Bugis+, MBS, United Square, ION, VIVOCITY, Footlocker.
2. The Batman™ x Fossil
There’s a lot to admire in this The Batman™ x Fossil capsule collection — everything from watches, to backpacks and leather accessories, as well as jewellery that includes a Wax Seal Ring fit for a billionaire.
We’ll start with The Batman™ Watch, clearly a highlight of the extensive collection, and a matte-black design that perfectly suits the understated aesthetic of DC’s superhero. The watch takes on the look of the Batsuit, and features a stainless steel, black ion-plated 42mm case, red accents and an automatic movement with date. It arrives with three interchangeable straps as well, each with materials that mimic Batman’s tech — Kevlar®, ballistic nylon and molded silicone.
If you’d like to embrace your inner supervillain though, there’s The Riddler™ Watch, a louder, more graphic piece with a green-and-black checker-patterned leather strap, and details such as The Riddler’s signature question marks on the stainless steel, black ion-plated 44mm case. Then, there are jewellery pieces that see a matte black Dog Tag Necklace, Lava Beads Slider Bracelet, and Wax Seal Ring, all featuring the Bat emblem.
For Fossil’s leather goods, The Batman Backpack is certainly a most functional style, done in rich black leather with four exterior pockets, molle panels on the straps and speed clip details that function as extra security and a unique design element. A silicone-injected Bat emblem makes for subtle detail. Along with that, there’s also a Waistpack, done in a similar style, and leather accessories of card cases and a bifold wallet to represent the caped crusader.
$99 – $509, available at FossilSG.com and Fossil stores.
3. Little Caesars Batman Calzony Pizza
For something that takes itself a lot less seriously, give it up for Little Caesars Pizza and their interpretation of the Batman — The Batman Calzony. This one’s an interesting invention that’s part pepperoni pizza and part calzone, and 100% inspired by the Bat-signal, which you can tell by its bat-wing shape.
The Batman Calzony is essentially a large Pepperoni Pizza topped with Parmesan, pepperoni slices, as well as muenster and mozzarella cheese, made daily with freshly-made dough. What’s new is its calzone-like crust on the edges, folded at the top and bottom to form the head and tail of the bat logo, that’s filled with extra doses of gooey cheese and the brand’s signature garlicky spread. It even comes with a serving of Crazy Sauce® for dipping.
From $10.90 for the BATMAN CALZONY, $12.90 for a meal with a 16oz drink, and $20.88 for a combo meal with 1 set of Caesar Wings and 2 16oz drinks. Available at Little Caesars Pizza outlets for dine-in, takeaway, and delivery.
