Black Belt Forever

The black utility belt

  • The black utility belt was used with the Sonar Batsuit during auditions for Batman Begins.
  • An Actor wearing the Sonar Batsuit in the 2003 WB film Looney Tunes: Back in Action was wearing the black utility belt during the incident where he became exasperated with Brendan Fraser ruining a movie scene in his pursuit of Daffy Duck.
