Did the silver age BATGIRL inspire the all black costume of BATMAN in 1989?
If you look at the original Barbara Gordan BATGIRL costume in 1967 it was designed with a black sensibility with flashes of yellow. Flash forward to 1989 and Tim Buton’s BATMAN debuts but instead of the blue and grey color scheme of the comic book they decide to go all black. So were they inspired by the 1960’s BATGIRL? I can’t say for sure but it makes you wonder.
