Kevin Smith spilled during his latest Hollywood Babble-On podcast that he has seen a picture of Affleck in the new costume straight from director Zack Snyder. Apparently, it’s awesome.
“I saw the Batman costume. More than that I saw a picture of him (Affleck) in the costume … Now, 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 (Snyder). You have not seen this costume in a movie on film before, and for a comic book fan, it was mind bending. I was like ‘Get the f— out of here, only you have enough power to pull this off.'”
Do you have any ideas of what it will look like? We’ve compiled a list of ideas people are throwing around on the net. Which is your favourite?
When Kevin Smith uploaded the show as a podcast, he bleep out the name describing what the new Batman suit looked like. However, an audience member in attendance at the live show revealed that the artist that Kevin Smith referenced was in fact… Jim Lee.
Of course, Lee has worked on many different versions of Batman over the years, including the New 52 Batman. Does this mean that the suit will be black and gray? Or perhaps it will be blue and grey? The colours remain up in the air, but it definitely sounds like we’ll see a version of the suit more consistent with the comic books than previous movies.
