On his weekly Podcast "Hollywood Babble-On with Ralph Garman and Kevin Smith" Mr. Smith let slip some information about the new costuime for Batman in the upcoming Superman Vs Batman movie. He told his co host and audiences that back stage Director Zack Snyder showed him a picture of the costume on his iPhone. Kevin had this to say

"I saw the costume, more than that I saw him [Ben Affleck] in the costume...I don't want to give anything away cause that is up to them and stuff, but I am going to say this...I instantly bear hugged him. You have not seen this costume in film before. Because every other movie has done this matrixy black armor thing...There wasn't a single nipple on this fucking suit man. I think everyone is gonna be like 'Holy Shit!' We haven't been down this path before. Even the Hardest core "fuck this movie" person will be like 'alright, I'm ready!'

He then goes on to explain what it reminded him of.

"It seemed like it was very [Redacted] Influenced."

In the podcast he bleeped what it was influenced by but could he have been talking about Frank Miller? What do you guys think, leave your comments in the usual place.

That's good, I'm guessing it'll be like the one in Dark Knight Returns?

He saw Affleck in costume...DAMN I CANT [frick]IN WAIT!!!

@Dude

i wouldn't mind that Batman Beyond variation.
DeathstrokeTerminator - 11/10/2013, 11:42 PM
The way he describes it, Man does it get me excited to see it!
BANE5000 - 11/10/2013, 11:43 PM
@DudeGuyMan

Im thinking and hoping it something like one of those suits
jerryblake - 11/10/2013, 11:44 PM
@Dude

although it's not that intimidating
Poolio - 11/10/2013, 11:45 PM
Just reading him describing it gives me chills...
jerryblake - 11/10/2013, 11:45 PM
first one. i mean. The second variation is kinda spooky.
ItsATrap - 11/10/2013, 11:47 PM
i feel like they're gonna go the route of the lee bermejo batsuit with an Injusticey twist. kind of like a more rambo version of nite owl from snyder's watchmen movie.

or i'm talking out my butt and am totally off.
Starkasm - 11/10/2013, 11:47 PM
Can anyone tell me a good starting point for batman comics?
Moohika - 11/10/2013, 11:48 PM
It's going to be a long wait between now and Comic-Con 2014, because sadly, I think we'll have to wait until then to see it, unless...some sneaky paps get some photos from the set.
wambam91 - 11/10/2013, 11:50 PM
Hoping for an Arkham City inspired suit, that would be sick!
Moohika - 11/10/2013, 11:50 PM
@Starkasm
Night of the Owls
The Long Halloween
Batman: Year One
Batman Hush

Any of these 4

I NEED TO SEE THIS SHIT DAMNIT!!
jerryblake - 11/10/2013, 11:52 PM
@Dude

actually what i meant is that the costume from the first picture you posted (first one from the left) is really cool but not that intimidating. The costume from the second picture is much more intimidating (and spooky at the same time)

That third picture (gif) - i'm inbetween. Can't decide. Not sure about a blue colour.
chubbybubby - 11/10/2013, 11:53 PM
@Starkasm Start with Batman Year One.

Also, people at Hollywood Babble-On would have heard what Kevin Smith compared the suit to. Do any of you guys know people who attended yesterday's show?

EGO
Batman B&Y (short stories)

"It seemed like it was very [Redacted] Influenced."

Dammit, what?! I need to know!
Starkasm - 11/10/2013, 11:58 PM
Cheers guys.
jerryblake - 11/11/2013, 12:01 AM
@Starkasm

Knightfall is a very good read too.
Once you introduce yourself to a Batman world you can try with that.


jerryblake - 11/11/2013, 12:05 AM
Batman: Venom is kinda good too (as i recall)
charlie2094 - 11/11/2013, 12:13 AM
Can't wait to see it! Has to be a grey/black suit, best way to differentiate the new Batman from Nolans version, plus it'd look great. Be down with one in the style of the Arkham games (minus the pants and less bulky) or Batman Noel. Doesn't need to show how armoured it is, could still be armoured, but with the grey material over the top...don't see them going the Beyond route, that's probably too big of a change

Given how big Affleck is, think him in the cowl and a grey costume would look exactly like the Batman we know from the comics...hopefully we'll see a photo soon after they start filming.

Anyone know when we got the first photo of Cavill in the suit?
chubbybubby - 11/11/2013, 12:23 AM
@Charlie2094 We saw Cavill in the suit in early August of 2011, a week or two after shooting started
miklonus - 11/11/2013, 12:31 AM
I. Hate. "Hyperbole".
Fanmar16 - 11/11/2013, 12:33 AM
sound like a Batman: Noel suit, is obvious
miklonus - 11/11/2013, 12:41 AM
For all of Kevin Smith's bullshit he doesn't strike me as a super hardcore comic fan. He can name-drop the famous ones, like a "Moore", or a "Miller", but he can't name-drop a guy that's less-known with an equally effective, memorable, iconic, take on Batman or in the comic field in general.

I'd assume, based off that, it's highly likely something Miller-influenced, or an artist whose rendition of Batman is easy to reference immediately off the tongue.
miklonus - 11/11/2013, 12:42 AM
God injustice would NOT be cool. Midway/Netherealm/whatever the [frick] they call themselves could NEVER design good-looking suits, for either Mortal Kombat or Injustice, and Injustice just furthered that point home.

The best costumes in that game are pre-existing costumes; the DLC and the like.
miklonus - 11/11/2013, 12:43 AM
Make the animated series/classic Batman costume without bastardizing it. Let Goyer and Snyder do the bastardizing story-wise. They already cast Batman for a f_cking Superman movie, let alone f_cked up the first one.
preacherfan666 - 11/11/2013, 12:44 AM
@miklonus then you don't know much about Kevin Smith. I have listened to nearly all of his podcasts and watched all of his films and yeah, he is a hardcore comic book fan. why are you so judgemental man? just cause a dude is famous he isn't really a hardcore fan. get off your pedestal man, there is probably someone out there who is a bigger fan than you and says you arent a hardcore fan.
DeathstrokeTerminator - 11/11/2013, 12:52 AM
@miklonus
LOL, Get the [frick] out of here with your bullshit. Kevin Smith WROTE comics, trust me, he knows comic book writers...and Man of Steel was CBM of the year!
Himura - 11/11/2013, 12:52 AM
If its similar to the one from the Arkham games then it'd be awesome.
ManCalledSting - 11/11/2013, 12:53 AM
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!!!!
marvelstudios - 11/11/2013, 12:54 AM
OMG. SHOW ME!

@miklonus

Your passing judgement on Kevin Smith and his status as a "comics fan" is so far off of the mark, that your comment would have to climb mountains just to reach the dizzying heights of "incorrect". You could have just done 30 seconds of research before making that comment but, instead, you went ahead and started barking out of your ass. Smith even owns a comic book store (which 15 seconds on AMC would have shown you). Sorry if this sounds harsh but I'm sure some of the other people on this thread are going to crank it up to "batshit insane" (pun intended) once they realized what you wrote.
sameoldthing - 11/11/2013, 2:08 AM
Needs to have dark grey & black look,follow the Batman:Noel version.
The Bat-suit from Injustice game is crap,Arkham games are much better.
Pumped to see what it looks like!
Brainiac13 - 11/11/2013, 2:09 AM
I hope its grey.
TheRealistStarLord - 11/11/2013, 2:30 AM
Cool.
BatManiac - 11/11/2013, 2:40 AM
They'll release an image before we can see the set images. So don't worry, we will get to see the suit a lot sooner than comic con.
