For all those who were disappointed in the chosing of Ben Affleck to play Batman in "Batman Vs. Superman", you now have a little something to set your sights on: The new Batsuit.
Over the weekend, Kevin Smith, comic book fanatic and the brains behind "Mallrats" and "Chasing Amy", hosted a Q & A event with director Zack Snyder and "Man of Steel" stars Henry Cavill and Amy Adams, to promote the Blu-ray release of "Man of Steel". Smith said today that the suit is mind-blowing, according to Business Insider.
He said, "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.'"
The new Batsuit is rumored to be modeled around the one in the 2011 hit graphic novel, "Batman: Noel". So, does the suit make the hero? Or at least make up for the guy chosen to play Batman?
Smith added, "The costume, it blew my mind. It's its own thing. I was so elated." Perhaps the awesomeness of the suit and the aptness of the directing guidance of Zack Snyder, this thing won't be a total disappointment to Batman fans everywhere. He said even hardcore comic book fans would be able to get behind the suit, if nothing else. As a hardcore comic book fan, I guess he would know!
