More From Kevin Smith On Ben Affleck's MAN OF STEEL 2 Bat-Suit

More From Kevin Smith On Ben Affleck's MAN OF STEEL 2 Bat-Suit

The actor/director has already said that he was shown a snap of his pal Ben Affleck wearing the new Bat-suit, but in the latest edition of his podcast, Smith goes into a bit more detail - revealing that Superman was also present in the picture he saw.

Last year while hosting the Man Of Steel fan event, Kevin Smith was lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the costume that would be worn by Ben Affleck when he appears as The Dark Knight in Zack Snyder's Batman VS. Superman themed sequel. Smith actually spilled a few details, stating that the suit reminded him of comic book artist Jim Lee's take on the Caped Crusader, and now during his Fatman On Batman Podcast he discusses it again - and although he keeps schtum on any further specifics relating to the look of the suit, he does reveal that Bats wasn't alone in the pic he was shown.

“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.”

Judging by Smith's description of the picture, it sounds to me like he saw what will be the very first official promo image from the movie; or would have been at any rate - who knows now that its release has been pushed back to 2016. Still, if the image is at their disposal I can't see WB waiting too long to give fans SOMETHING to whet their appetites, especially now that we've been hit with the bad news of the 10 month delay.

Nick56 - 1/21/2014, 8:37 AM
[frick] im so ready to see the suit. Im assuming the photo shoot was for EW or something.
marvelstudios - 1/21/2014, 8:37 AM
I really want to see the suit. But I was soooo disappointed that the movie is being pushed back by a year. This movie better blow my fkn mind.

Can't wait to hear more news about the DCCU.
Vegeta - 1/21/2014, 8:38 AM
I can't wait to see the suit!
Nubase - 1/21/2014, 8:39 AM
we can only guess but kevin and bens wife Jennifer have both said the same thing, the new suit is one never seen on screen before.

l guess they have already done lighting tests on the suits, l remember an article that the custome designer said that supes suit has a slight tweek and batman suit is all done and he still working on wonder women suit.

l think once shooting on the movie in march starts we will get a teaser.

It will not be all black.
That's not Batman..that's a ninja.
It will resemble something from the comics most likely.

Enough talk, show the suit!

charlie2094 - 1/21/2014, 8:45 AM
So, it has to be the grey/back suit right? As a fan, that's the only suit I want to see...has to be that! Can't wait to see it, that picture sounds great, already know it'll be my new wallpaper :P
ezio619 - 1/21/2014, 8:46 AM
Charlie-yeah man, my current wallpaper is the guardians line up photo but when this comes out,thats gonna change

Sweet! Mines the Cap/Winter Soldier concept art released a while back...which unfortunately, will probably already be out by the time we get a look at this photo :P

Ooh wow, a "BATMAN" suit. Who gives a f_ck? Tell me when they're making a suit and movie for a NON-Batman-affiliated Justice League character/member. Aquaman would be news. Wonder Woman, Flash, would be news. Batman? They'll keep making movies of Batman. F_ck Batman. Give me something "NEW" Warner Brothers. I'm f_ckin' tired of Batman.

Batman is the Don Dada of DC Comics and don't you goddamn well forget it!
LexHairFight - 1/21/2014, 8:59 AM
"They gave you the suit you all wanted to see"

I freaking called it - lots of sequence and lace. Think Victorian Luberace with a cowl. Deep down its what we all want.
Smarfi - 1/21/2014, 9:00 AM
Maybe they aren't releasing that shot yet because they want include Wonder Woman? Anyways, hurry the [frick] up WB!
JJJameson - 1/21/2014, 9:00 AM
So basically, this will be the reveal picture if Kevin Smith is right

Regardless, I don't think I'll ever be able to forgive WB for screwing up this bad with DC Comics characters. We'll be getting a visually accurate Batman in... 2016. Yay.
Omarvls - 1/21/2014, 9:02 AM
Can't wait to see it
Durango95 - 1/21/2014, 9:02 AM
I hate Kevin Smith. [frick] that fat bastard.

Well, I was never ever in love with the previous suits (Bale looked comical in TDKR) so I am hoping this will be a definitive Batsuit. Get it right after like what, 30 years?
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 1/21/2014, 9:05 AM
Comparing it to Jim Lee's design isn't saying much. That is what Batman has looked like for almost 75 years. Only unique thing is the short ears which he has had in the past.

BlackIceJoe - 1/21/2014, 9:05 AM
Stp with all the teasing and start showing the Bat Suit. I will take a guess that this one will have long bat ears and white eyes. The eyes will be fiberglass. Plus it will have the utility belt. Plus be the blue on grey suit.
JasonBlue - 1/21/2014, 9:06 AM
Hakunna Matata what a wonderful dayyy
Jollem - 1/21/2014, 9:07 AM
MoS 2 is gonna be the best thing to happen to cbms since tdk trilogy and watchmen and MoS and some others
JasonBlue - 1/21/2014, 9:08 AM
It's gonna be the blue suit!! Or else both Jen Garner and Kevin Smith wouldn't be so shocked (and pleased) by the decision
TheWolverine08 - 1/21/2014, 9:09 AM
Let's hope Warner Brother puts their money where their mouths are in regards to how good this suit looks.
chewish - 1/21/2014, 9:09 AM
My body is ready

I wouldn't expect a cloth suit. That's a backwards step I don't think Snyder will take. All modern Bat-suits are some form of armored suit, so I reckon its going to be something like Jim Lee's New 52 Bat-Suit.

If it's one character i felt never needed a costume re-design from sequel to sequel was Superman. I mean he found the suit on a Kryptonian space craft that was burried in the ice years ago. Where is he gonna get this new suit from? & they'd better not change the design of the S shield
