Last year Kevin Smith arguably began the frenzy for our first look at the new Batsuit when he mentioned that Zack Snyder gave him a sneak peak of sorts. Now that Snyder has revealed the full suit (in black and white albeit), Smith has further teased us fanboys on Hollywood Babble-On. "As you may remember, I saw a photo of the Batsuit many months ago, and many people asked online, ‘Is that the picture you saw?’ No, that is a very cool picture, but that is not the picture I saw,” said Smith "They put it on a fake rooftop, and they lit it up. But it was in color, and you could see every piece of detail. So I've seen some people online go, ‘Why is this f***ing suit any different than the Chris Nolan Batsuit, it’s all one f***ing color.’ It’s like, ‘Dude, that’s a monochrome photo. You know what that means, one chrome.” Smith went on to continue raving about the new Batsuit and its striking similarities to the suit featured in The Dark Knight Returns. “That’s not a representation of what the suit looks like,” continued Smith. “So what the suit looks like, and I was always kind of keeping it quiet until they revealed it, but they've revealed it. And you can kind of see, and anybody that…you’ve seen some people take the picture and color it online. If you want to see what this f***ing suit looks like, you just go to Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, go to the third book, Hunt the Dark Knight…it’s the exact f***ing outfit he’s wearing. That’s why I hugged that guy all those months ago.” When Smith's co-host, Ralph Garman, said he thought the new Batmobile looked similar to the Tumbler, Smith stated “I will put this to you. What if it’s one of a few Batmobiles? What if that’s one of a few outfits in the movie? I suspect that’s the case.”

Nice find blackjack.
AxeEffect - 5/20/2014, 12:29 PM
well we know that there will be two suits, but it'd be hella cool to see the earlier renditions displayed in his batcave, like all the robin suits, all the previous batman suits encased in a glass case, now that would be awesome!

Maybe Superman can learn a thing or two from Bats as well then, would be nice for him to have a few suits as well.
AxeEffect - 5/20/2014, 12:31 PM

Thats the suit!

So its confirmed, we will see the comic book hunt the dark knight suit on screen, the grey suit with black cape and cowl, insane!

The cynic in me says "Of course there's gonna be more than 1 Batsuit and more than 1 Batmobile. More Batsuits = more action figures, more Batmobiles = more toys. More action figures and toys = more merchandising and more $$$"

The fanboy in me says "Screw it, I don't care as long as everything looks awesome!"

All I'm saying is that you could have had Batman be presented as being experienced with the mantle just as easily with this design:



Now when I think of this movie I fear that the story line is going to have him be an too weary, with no new exciting way of him fighting off his opponents - just him slugging it out like an old man with no grace. And I know that sounds weird as it is Snyder of all people, but, I really hope the suit is the line from which it draws the TDKR influence. The TDKR story is excellent, but to take influence and (probably) adapt some of it's elements when you are trying to get a Cinematic Universe going? It's a terrible idea.

Good to know about the colors. I'm happy.
Highflyer - 5/20/2014, 12:46 PM

Hopefully he's right about the suit(s), and this photo was just for nostalgia.
yossarian - 5/20/2014, 12:51 PM
@Brainiac - I know man. I just wanted a reason to post that .gif.
JoeMomma29 - 5/20/2014, 12:52 PM
Nice find B.J.!!!!!!! And the haters can suck it..........m
BatmanRobinNightwing - 5/20/2014, 12:52 PM
That suit is a perfect replica of TDK returns. I cant wait to see what other batsuits and batmobiles they show. I hope they show the full batcave too.

PS show us the updated superman suit and the Wonder Woman outfit now damnit.

charlie2094 - 5/20/2014, 12:54 PM
You only have to brighten the picture a little to see the grey/black color scheme...definitely looks a lot like the Dark Knight Returns suit, love it :D
Starfox - 5/20/2014, 12:54 PM
I'm so glad its going to be Black & Grey and Its also interesting what he said about the other suits and Batmobiles. Now imagine how Snyder's Batcave is going to look. *Wow*

Good Find MBJ ;)
