The release of Batman vs. Superman has been pushed back to May 2016, but that’s not stopping news from coming out about the production of the film. Camera won’t roll for some time, but already we’re starting to hear about the new Batsuit for Ben Affleck and the first major detail is that there will be more than one.
According to Latino-Review (via JoBlo), there will be more than one Batsuit for Affleck and they both look stunning.
The more interesting thing I’ve heard is that Batman will actually wear 2 batsuits in the film, but where as Grey-and-Blue has already been designed and Affleck has worn it, the second Batsuit is more armored like the one in the Dark Knight Returns and Kingdom Come comics. I bring this up, because this rumor seems a bit more expected in a movie where Batman fights Superman, because: of course, Batman would die without an armored suit.
It’s hard to gauge how much of this is true, as the rumor mentioned that the Adam West batsuit is coming back is a pretty stupid idea if it’s true. One thing this style of suit suggests though is that The Dark kNight Returns is an inspiration for the movie. The second suit rumor also seems to imply that the film will take elements from The Dark Knight Returns, something we’ve heard refuted by Snyder and company.
Either way, it’s sounding like there might be two Batsuits in the film, which means Batman fans will have either a lot to love or will be able to double the hate.
