Kevin Smith: ‘Ben Affleck’s Batsuit Is Blue & Grey’

By: The Superficial / May 21, 2014

If you’re like me, you’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about Ben Affleck’s batsuit and whether or not it possess the ability to make anyone but Zack Snyder direct Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice (Yup, that’s the title now.) because Man of Steel was a CGI shitshow. Or you’ve just been wondering what color it’s going to be which is apparently the classic blue and grey, according to Kevin Smith. Via io9:

“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. 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 fucking suit any different than the Chris Nolan Batsuit, it’s all one fucking color.’ It’s like, ‘Dude, that’s a monochrome photo. You know what that means, one chrome. …
“That’s not a representation of what the suit looks like. 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 fucking 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 fucking outfit he’s wearing.”

Thanks to reddit, you can see what the suit probably will look like above. And thanks to Instagram, you can roll your fucking eyes because – Surprise! – it looks they’re going to cram The Joker into this thing because apparently Lex Luthorberg isn’t enough. This set photo is from cinematographer Larry Fong who might as well have posted a Vine of Zack Snyder taking a slow-motion piss on Heath Ledger’s grave:

Goddammit…
