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!
