Kevin Smith Talks More About Affleck’s Batsuit


Every fan is assuredly disappointed that Man Of Steel 2, which features Superman (Henry Cavill) and Batman (Ben Affleck) together on screen, has been delayed for a year due to …. who knows – Affleck’s leg ailment, script rewrites, and the chance to dominate the summer of 2016 box office. Though, it’s being reported that Marvel has something planned for that season as well.

The long held speculation/almost fact was that Warner Brothers would be releasing an official photo of Affleck in the new Batsuit shortly before location filming in Detroit, MI would have began in February. Of course, this delay may mean we have to wait a bit longer to see it.

Kevin Smith caught a glimpse of the new Batman costume on MOS 2 director Zack Snyder’s phone during a Man Of Steel DVD release fan event last year and here’s what he had to say about it most recently:
“I talked about it on Hollywood Babble-On, but I have seen the suit. I did this Man Of Steel Yahoo, fan event when the DVD came out. I was hosting Zack Snyder was there, Amy Adams, we had Henry Cavill from satellite over in the UK, and you know it was all about Man of Steel. And at one point Zack talked a little bit about the future and Batman Vs Superman, but when the show was all done, Zack was all like ‘Kev come here, come here’, and he takes me over to the corner and whips out his phone, and he shows me a picture of Batman. Live action version of Batman. A very familiar Batman, I might add. It didn’t look like any of the cinematic Batmans that have ever gone before. He shows me that picture and behind Batman…Superman in the suit looming in the distance. Both on a roof top kind of thing. It was on a set, a little set the put together for this photo shoot. So I was like ‘Oh my god! Is that the suit?! The suit looks amazing! Did you get people to model it?’ And he goes, ‘That’s your boy.’ And I look closely and it’s Ben Affleck wearing the suit. The suit, it is not mine to spill, in terms of what it looks like, you’ll see it. They’ll tell you when they want you to know, but any Batman fan is going to be F—ing pleased. I’m going to tell you that right now. They gave you the suit you all wanted to see.”

It seems that what Smith saw is a promo image for the upcoming film. Perhaps the wait to see anything official might be shorter than we think.
