Apart from this ‘Drifter’ look, the LEGO set also reveals Alfred’s costume, alongside Riddler getting inside the Batcave. There is also a recreation of Catwoman and Batman’s chase which was previously seen through videos and photos. With regard to Batman’s drifter persona, there isn’t much interesting in terms of his whole aesthetic. Instead, it feeds more curiosity as to how this fits in the movie’s narrative. As revealed by Reeves, Bruce has grown seemingly frustrated as two years of being Batman hasn’t brought the changes that he wanted to bring in the city of Gotham. Perhaps being the drifter helps him to be on the ground and find more info about his missions. That being said, the fact that he can wander around without drawing much attention, could be a hint of how run-down the city could be.
