During the latest Fat Man on Batman, Kevin Smith described the new Batsuit that will be featured in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (once again). While most of the description was filled with bits fans noticed from the released picture, Smith did drop another new detail about the suit. "They're doing that one for the next movie.", Said Smith as he pointed to a statue from The Dark Knight Returns: Hunt For The Dark Knight (below), "Like he looks like that.". When Neal Adams brought up the fan film Batman: Dead End (video below), Smith said, "I'm telling you, that’s what they're doing in this new movie Batman movie. It's him in material. None of this body armor shit.". This new bit is something that some fans have speculated since the release of the image, as wrinkles in the "cloth" are visible in the suit. During the podcast, Kevin Smith and Neal Adams also discussed the previous Batman films (both have a disliking for all of them except for Batman Beings and The Dark Knight). When discussing Arrow, Adams praised it for "...being open to ideas" (he specifically pointed out the mystery behind Speedy), but also shared some of his critisisms of season one. He revealed that he has even sent in suggestions to the show's writers. 


 

Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice is scheduled to be released in movie theaters on May 6, 2016.

Does this guy do anything other than ride Batman v Superman's junk for attention?
charlie2094 - 7/5/2014, 9:51 AM
Sounds good! Never really liked the body armour at all, kind of guessed this was some kind of material instead of armour.
G3n3r4lzZoD9 - 7/5/2014, 9:51 AM
Is this supposed to be news?
We´ve known this since the image was released.
RedNTheHood - 7/5/2014, 9:51 AM
I feel like Kevin Smith is going to never be shown anything BvS again. He always spilling some beans. But everything he's said has been true (except for that script LOL) so I'm glad about the news!!!
DrunkenNukem - 7/5/2014, 9:53 AM
Well thats great to hear then....
FirstAvenger - 7/5/2014, 9:54 AM
Is this fake too?
Sipprelle - 7/5/2014, 9:55 AM
Good stuff, but didn't we already know this?
matthuliz - 7/5/2014, 9:56 AM
I knew it!


:-P
Pedrito - 7/5/2014, 9:56 AM
So the pecs and abs on the suit are not armor? Just cosmetic? Like a Halloween costume haha.
Come on, it's still some kind of armor.

Kevin Smith is Zack Snyder's slut

Does this guy know how to close his mouth?
typicalfanboy - 7/5/2014, 10:09 AM
is kelvin smiths part of the movie now? the bat-man v suparman and the rise of dawn justice.
thatdude - 7/5/2014, 10:12 AM
I'm really doubting he could have had any involvement in a fake script now. I think El Mayimbe is right about the villains.
AlexanderLykins - 7/5/2014, 10:18 AM
@McNyagano
I saw that!

thatdude - 7/5/2014, 10:19 AM

I feel like Smith is talking from fan perceptive, I don't really think he has any inside information, in spite of the rumors.
AlexanderLykins - 7/5/2014, 10:24 AM
@ThePeoplesChamp
I don't blame him. I'm plugging the movie as much as possible too. But this is MrBlackJack's article and also a Batman v Superman article.

SidTheSloth - 7/5/2014, 10:29 AM
I like Kevin Smith. He is a cool dude. I have no clue why he gets all the BTS info but whatver. Is it becuase of Blunt Man and Chronic? Will they Cameo? :)
Nubase - 7/5/2014, 10:33 AM
we have been used to the black batman suit ever since tim burtons batman in the mid 90's and thats a long time, it time to switch it up and for this batman tehy have gone back to the source material and he will be in the grey suit and black cowl and cape.

Kevin is a unofficial promoter for the movie, it was zack who showed him the pic of the trinity where stand ins was wearing the suits, he is saying what we would be saying if we saw the picture, theres nothing wrong with what he is doing or saying, the official pic of batman is out there.
0megaDaGod - 7/5/2014, 10:41 AM
It looks like cloth in the sense that Captain America's Avengers suit looked like cloth. It's obviously meant to be form fitting while also presenting the muscles and stature in the most imposing way possible

I like K Smith, and you can tell he's just loving the fact that he's got the inside track to possibly the biggest CBM of all time and it's thru one of his best buddies

But If that fake script rumor is true then Silen Bob is the biggest troll of all time

For those of us old enough to remember "Growing Pains"..that's Boner Stabille as the Joker in that vid.
alibaba3317 - 7/5/2014, 10:42 AM
sounds stupid having a pyjamas as suit, just saying...
PeterParker1991 - 7/5/2014, 10:42 AM
Don't care what "material" his suit is made from. He can't fight Super-man and win. This Superman fought an alien invasion, and destroyed a death star like machine on his own. I don't think a guy in a "Bat-suit" is gonna be much of a threat.. so yeah good luck with that, Snyder. Chump
DCGuy - 7/5/2014, 10:52 AM
I am now a Kevin Smith-ologist as in religion! he is now y based god, this man gives us so much BVS news I love it, I love that DC hired him just to do this and that people are eating it up!!!! yay!!!
StingyFox - 7/5/2014, 11:03 AM
SHUT UP Kevin Smith.
JatevinM - 7/5/2014, 11:06 AM
You all do realize that if Snyder and WB didn't want him saying shit........he wouldn't be. Kevin Smith talks like this because he's been okayed to do it. Do you honestly think they care about the small details he gives out when everytime he does it the CBM community gets more interested in Dawn of Justice
thebearjew - 7/5/2014, 11:08 AM
sooo happy were getting real tights finally
no more stupid looking armor
getting a batman that looks like batman!
TimL - 7/5/2014, 11:14 AM
Can this guy f*ck off already, annoying as sh*t. Shouldn't he be working on another mediocre movie by now?
Jaspion - 7/5/2014, 11:14 AM
that sucks
Sumitsjc - 7/5/2014, 11:17 AM
@PeterParker1991 -

yeah he did destroyed that machine even he was standing right into Gravity beam and newly formed Kryptonian Environment.
idk which plan Batman will come up woth
StingyFox - 7/5/2014, 11:35 AM
@JatevinM

If anything, he just annoys more people with this crap. Why can't Snyder or WB say it, instead?
TheDudeRusty - 7/5/2014, 11:52 AM
Kevin Smith is a good writer, I wasn't aware he was this detested.

GreenLantern519 - 7/5/2014, 12:09 PM
I just want to know who's playing Green Lantern.
POTUS - 7/5/2014, 12:27 PM
I'm POTUS

I once had a big pimple on my butt. I popped it and it became Kevin Smith.

Before that I had one that turned into Michael Moore. Oh, wait, that was a big dump I took.

Sorry, not feeling very POTUSy today... everyone hates me now or has turned on me, and I just feel like giving some back. I might even change my title...

I'm Your King. Kneel.

Yeah, I like that.

I'm POTUS
