Kevin Smith Confirms Details On Ben Affleck’s Batman Suit

May 21, 20140 Comments

Back in November, filmmaker Kevin Smith revealed that Batman vs. Superman director Zack Snyder showed him a picture of Ben Affleck’s Batman suit that would be used in the film. The internet went crazy with speculation and last week we finally got to see the suit via a black and white photo. Now, Smith is further teasing details on the Hollywood Babble-On podcast.

“As you may remember, I saw a photo of the Batsuit many months ago, and many people asked online, ‘Is that the picture you saw?’ No, that is a very cool picture, but that is not the picture I saw,” said Smith “They put it on a fake rooftop, and they lit it up. But it was in color, and you could see every piece of detail. So I’ve seen some people online go, ‘Why is this f***ing suit any different than the Chris Nolan Batsuit, it’s all one f***ing color.’ It’s like, ‘Dude, that’s a monochrome photo. You know what that means, one chrome.” 

Smith continued to praise the new Batsuit and its striking similarities to the suit featured in The Dark Knight Returns“That’s not a representation of what the suit looks like,” continued Smith. “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.” 

When Smith’s co-host, Ralph Garman, said the new Batmobile looked similar to Nolan’s Tumbler, Smith stated “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.”

More Batsuits? More Batmobiles? Consider that speculation for now since there isn’t any evidence to back it up unless Smith secretly knows something we don’t due to his connections. Time will tell.

Below is the image of Ben Affleck as Batman that Zack Snyder revealed on Twitter. The second image is from the comic that Smith references above as to how the suit looks. The other images are versions of the “Returns” suit that has appeared in the “Arkham” video game series and a collectible statue.
