Rumor: More Details Emerge On The Batsuit In BATMAN VS SUPERMAN
While that whole news of Ben Affleck dropping our of the upcoming Man of Steel sequel seems to be calming down, we’ve had a few more reports from Kevin Smith and Jennifer Garner, the wife of Ben Affleck, regarding how awesome the new Batsuit will be for the film. We still know very little about the over all design, but it’s been reported to be Jim Lee inspired. There have also been reports of an armored suit, similar to that used in the hugely popular Kingdom Come and Dark Knight Returns story lines. Well, if Latino-Review’s latest bit of news is true, we could actually be seeing two different designs.
Yesterday, Da7e revealed that he is expecting to see the return of the blue and grey suit rather than the black and grey that many fans have been expecting. This would also mean tiny ears on the cowl and a big black bat across the chest. Knowing what the new Bat-logo looks like from the reveal at last year’s SDCC, that would make sense. Should this happen, it would be the first time we’ve seen this iteration of the suit since Adam West wore it. This suit has already been designed and Affleck has already worn it, so it’s safe to assume this is the picture that Kevin Smith has seen and has said fans will love it.
Now, in regards to the armored suit,this one seems to still be in the design phase and will indeed look similar to that in Kingdom Come and The Dark Knight Returns. As Da7e says, it would make sense for Batman to need an armored suit if he plans on taking on the powerhouse that is Superman. Today, El Mayimbe has a bit more information on this armored suit and it’s a bit surprising.
According to the source, the plating is silver/white. The plates are attached to a black undercloth. The plates doesn’t cover his entire body. We see the black undercloth at the joints. Supposedly, it looks incredible. Equally, or maybe even better-looking than the other suit and it’s leagues above and beyond Bale’s suit from what I’m told.
Before I go one, it should be noted that even Mayimbe states this news should be taken with a grain of salt and is just a rumor at this point. He does go on to say that we could see our first official look some time in February or early March. With filming expected to begin in May since the delay occurred, we should start to see more tidbits int he coming months and hopefully, the new suit(s) will be one of them.
I was stoked to learn that we could be seeing a black and grey suit, but the idea of a blue and grey suit on the big screen may be more than my little nerd heart can take. We’ll be sure to keep you up to date on this news as more info comes along. Again, read this as a rumor at this point.
