BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN: What Did Kevin Smith Tell Ben Affleck About His Batsuit?
It seems just about everybody has seen a picture of the new Batsuit except us fans. With that being said, most people would expect the man in the suit himself to be one of first people to see a picture of it - but it seems Ben Affleck has yet to catch a glimpse!
During a recent Reddit "Ask Me Anything", Kevin Smith revealed something interesting about the first time he saw Ben Affleck in the new batsuit. Apparently, Affleck himself had not seen any pictures of the new suit at the time that Kevin Smith had. Smith also reassures he has nothing to do with the project nor does he have any exclusive information. Here's what he said:
I’m not involved at all. I’m just a big, fat cheerleader, blinded by love of both Batman and the dude I used to work with a lot who’s now gonna play him. Strange collision of lifetime passions – which, make no mistake, sounds exactly as homoerotic as I intended. In MALLRATS opening credits, Ben is depicted on cover of BUTTMAN ADVENTURES comic book. In the CHASING AMY commentary track, I say to Ben “You can be Clooney.” He says “I can be Clooney.” And I ask “But can you be Batman?” In JERSEY GIRL, Ben refers to the street-sweeper as “the BatMobile”. And years after all that s***, homey winds up in the cape & cowl. That s*** just makes me happy.
But the only words I’ve exchanged with Ben about the Batman role have been via email. I blew him up when I saw the suit and wrote “Zack showed me you in the suit. I’ve got the vapors. He wrote back “You saw it?! I haven’t even seen the pictures yet! How’s it look?” I replied “F*** you and take all my money. a) Perfect suit. Every fan will love. b) You ARE Batman! c) Can I be Penguin?” Still waiting on a reply. He hasn’t said no…
What's also interesting is Matt Damon also had a recent Reddit "Ask Me Anything" where he was asked about the role of Robin in the upcoming film. Here's the quote:
You are correct. After I didn’t get the part, it was really awkward between Ben and I for a while. But I’ve still got the costume I wore in the audition and am planning on wearing it when Ben and I meet the winners of our fundraiser.
So what do you guys think of this? How much longer do you think it'll be before we see the new suit? Or how much longer can you guys be teased without snapping? Sound off below!
