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