Will BATMAN's Costume In BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN Be Jim Lee's Blue & Gray Suit?
Batman-News is reporting that, a fan that was supposedly in attendance for Kevin Smith's podcast, heard Smith say that Ben Affleck's Batman costume was inspired by Jim Lee's run. Which could mean a blue and gray costume. Come voice your opinions.
Earlier today, it was reported that Kevin Smith discussed Ben Affleck's Batman costume on his weekly Hollywood Babble-On podcast. He reveals that director Zack Snyder showed Kevin an image of Ben Affleck wearing the new Batman costume for Batman Vs. Superman. When vaguely describing what he saw, he mentioned that it won't be "matrixy black armor," like in past Batman films. He added, "It seemed like it was very [Redacted] Influenced." What was redacted? Now, we might know.
Batman-News (via CBT) Reports:
Update: a fan who was at the live recording says that it was “Jim Lee” that got bleeped on the podcast.
Legendary comic book artist, Jim Lee, had had quite a bit of influence on Batman's costume over the years. When he first worked on the Caped Crusader, It was for Batman: Hush (2002-2003). Which was a 12-issue run, written by Jeph Loeb. For that, Lee designed a blue and gray costume, that you can see in the images at the top and bottom of the is article. But, Lee also re-designed the Batsuit for DC Comics' 2011 revamp, The New 52. It's more of the standard black and gray variety. An image of it appears on the right side of the article. I'll assume Kevin Smith was referring to the blue and gray costume since he made such a point of saying it's not "matrixy black armor."
In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond his imagination. Transported years ago to Earth from Krypton, a highly advanced, distant planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question 'Why am I here?' Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner), Clark discovers having extraordinary abilities means making difficult decisions. When the world is in dire need of stability, an even greater threat emerges. Clark must become a Man of Steel, to protect the people he loves and shine as the world’s beacon of hope – Superman.
Man Of Steel was directed by Zack Snyder, from a script written by David Goyer. The cast includes: Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Ayelet Zurer, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, Antje Traue, Christopher Meloni, Harry Lennix, Laurence Fishburne and Richard Schiff.
