Real Life Batman II

This is a continuation in my Batman-costume-themed posts.  For the first Real Life Batman post, click this link.

In 1997, several big-name Hollywood stars got together in a big Batman and Robin movie event.

Chris O'Donnell played Robin, Uma Thurman played Poison Ivy, Arnold Schwarzenegger played Mr Freeze, and George Clooney played Batman.
Their costumes are also ridiculous, but in a different way.  The movie was meant to be a big Hollywood action piece, but still kept a comedic tone.  This lightness saved it from being a total flop.  The costumes are over-stylized (Especially Batman's).  If the whole suit were drab colored, and the silver accents were darkened and muted, it might work, but the silver is just too busy and way too bright. 
For the savior of the night, Batman sure is shiny.
