Remember when Kevin Smith saw the new batsuit from Batman Vs. Superman a few months ago? Remember how much we hated him for it? Well we finally got a glimpse of the new Ben Affleck Batsuit, the only kicker is the image is dark and in black and white. Many Photoshop experts out there gave us some color to the new batsuit, and apparently some of them were spot on.
As you may remember I saw a photo of the Batsuit many months ago and a lot of people asked online “is that the picture you saw”? No. That is a very cool picture but that’s not the picture I saw. They put it on a fake rooftop and they lit it and stuff like that, but it was in color and you could see every piece of detail.
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. That’s not a representation of what the suit looks like.
So what the suit looks like… and I was always kind of keeping it quiet until they revealed it, but they’ve f***ing revealed it. You can kind of see and 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.
Boom. So pretty much what you see above is what we are going to get, and I absolutely love it. The Dark Knight Returns is a fantastic Batman graphic novel (and animated movie) and I love that they are using the suit from it. Smith also drops some knowledge about more than one Batmobile and more than one batsuit, which we kind of already figured he would have some sort of armored batsuit to go up against Supes. Let me know your thoughts about what the Batsuit’s color palette looks like. Also take a listen to Smith’s words as he and fellow podcast host, Ralph Garman, chat about the new batsuit. That starts at 1:44:00.
