Kevin Smith Reveals More Info On Ben Affleck’s Batsuit In BATMAN VS SUPERMAN
Last week, fans got their first look at Ben Affleck suited up in his batsuit for the upcoming Batman Vs Superman film. For the most part, fans have been ecstatic with the picture that was revealed. It’s a much more clean and simple suit than we’ve seen from the suits that Christopher Nolan gave us and it has some rather unique features, such as the smaller ears and what looks to be an actual utility belt. But one thing we wanted to know was the color scheme for the suit. The image was shot in a monochrome filter, so it’s very hard to tell what the final color will be, but thanks to one of the biggest Batman fans out there, we may have a much better idea of what to expect.
One of the few people who have seen the suit in all its glory is Kevin Smith, host of the Hollywood Babble On (via Comicbook.com)show and friend of Ben Affleck. Fans have asked if that picture was the same image he saw months ago and he reveals it is not. The image he saw was a colored image of Affleck in the suit, standing on a roof top, adding that it was in color and he could see every detail of the suit. So what does this suit really look like?
“So what the suit looks like, and I was always kind of keeping it quiet until they revealed it, but they’ve revealed it. And you can kind of see, and anybody that…you’ve seen some people take the picture and color it online. If you want to see what this f***ing suit looks like, you just go to Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, go to the third book, Hunt the Dark Knight…it’s the exact f***ing outfit he’s wearing. That’s why I hugged that guy all those months ago.”
So fans, like myself, who have been hoping and wishing for a black and grey soon can finally rejoice! As you can see from the image above, there are some striking similarities: the large bat-symbol, the smaller ears, the belt. Also in the picture was our first good look at the iconic Batmobile, which looks to be a combination of the Tumbler from Nolan’s films and the more streamlined and futuristic vehicle from Batman Forever. Some fans liked it, others did not. Kevin Smith’s co-host. Ralph Garman made some comments about the new ride, to which Smith gave an interesting reply:
“I will put this to you. What if it’s one of a few Batmobiles? What if that’s one of a few outfits in the movie? I suspect that’s the case.”
Several months ago, it was rumored that we could actually see multiple suits show up in the film, but there was never really any solid evidence to support that idea. Now, it’s unclear whether Smith knows something we don’t and he’s dropping a pretty big bomb here or he is going completely off speculation. I’m suspecting the latter. With the secrecy surrounding this project, I doubt they’d allow Smith to be dropping this type of info at will. With filming under way, hopefully we’ll find the truth sooner rather than later.
What do you thing sports fans? Is this the suit you’ve been waiting for or is there another version you’d like to see better? Batman Vs. Superman is slated for a 2016 release and stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons and Gal Gadot.
