This past Saturday featured a Man of Steel Q&A that some fans were hoping would dig into some of the rumors floating around about Batman vs. Superman but director Zack Snyder stopped just short of acting like the film didn’t even exist. But moderator and comic book geek Kevin Smith seems to be more plugged in that we thought as he’s not only seen Ben Affleck’s new Batsuit, he’s seen the Oscar winner in it.
Smith spoke about the new batsuit on the new episode of his podcast Hollywood Babble-On and stated that the suit is unlike anything we’ve seen before. Smith says that after the Q&A, Snyder pulled him aside and showed him a photo of Affleck in the batsuit which Smith said made him weak in the knees it was so cool.
“He pulls me to the side, and he shows me…he pulls out his iPhone, as if it was going to be like look at this picture of my kids. And he showed me something that just…I’m not kidding I went glassy-eyed, and not because I was baked, absolutely glassy-eyed. I went weak in the knees,” said Smith “And it made me happy in such a way that nothing I’m not involved with has made me feel in a long time. I saw the Batman costume. More than that I saw a picture of him [Ben Affleck] in the costume. “
We likely won’t see anything about the batsuit until much closer to filming and chances are it will be leaked before it’s officially released by Warner Bros.
But what has us on our toes is Smith’s reaction, and not the fact that he made it sound as though he was looking at a scroll containing the meaning of life, rather that he said it’s not like anything we’ve seen on film before.
This means the look is either coming straight out of the comic books, something we reported a few weeks ago, or it’s an entirely new concept design.
Either way, the batsuit seems to have been picked out and we can’t wait to see what it looks like. What do you think it will look like? Sound off in the comments section and let us know.
