Kevin Smith let loose on his latest Podcast Hollywood Babble-On with the news that he has seen the new Batman costume designed for Zack Snyder‘s Superman VS. Batman movie. In fact, he’s seen the suit ON Ben Affleck. What’s he got to say about the whole thing?
Word straight from the Fat-Man’s mouth is that director Zack Snyder recently showed him a picture of the costume on his iPhone, most likely at the Superman Fan Event over the weekend. What did Kevin have to say about it?
I saw the costume, more than that I saw him [Ben Affleck] in the costume…I don’t want to give anything away cause that is up to them and stuff, but I am going to say this…I instantly bear hugged him. You have not seen this costume in film before. Because every other movie has done this matrixy black armor thing…There wasn’t a single nipple on this [frick]ing suit man. I think everyone is gonna be like ‘Holy Shit!’ We haven’t been down this path before. Even the Hardest core “[frick] this movie” person will be like ‘alright, I’m ready!
It seemed like it was very [Redacted] Influenced.
We didn’t take that part out, Smith bleeped that out of the podcast. It could be anything, insert Frank Miller, 60’s Batman, you name it and it could fit in there, but what do you think it could be?
I’m keying in on the “Matrixy black armor” thing and say they are going with a different color mix. My money is on the Arkham Asylum style suit. with the dark grey and black and leather belt. Of course they could go old school and use this as the Bat-suit template:
Thank the Lords of Kobal that Smith confirmed the lack of Bat-Nipple this time around. I just don’t think I could handle any more Bat-Nipple.
