During a recent episode of Hollywood Babble-On, Kevin Smith suggests that Ben Affleck's new Batsuit is actually blue and gray. I really do hope that this is true! Since the first photo of the suit wasn't in color, a lot of fans just assumed it would be black and grey. Some skillful photoshoppers have already played around with the image, giving us some color, and I found one featuring a blue and gray suit that you can see above.
When Smith first talked about the suit, he said that we "have not seen this costume in a movie, on film before… For a comic book fan, it was mind-bending." He elaborated a little bit more on this and hinted at the color of the suit. Here's what he had to say:
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. That’s why I hugged that guy all those months ago.
Below you'd find a image from Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns. I've always been a big fan of the blue and gray look, so I hope that's what we see in the film. Smith goes on to offer up one more little theory about the suit, saying,
"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."
Zack Snyder has said that his Batman will be an older, more seasoned Batman, so it would make sense for him to have multiple batsuits and vehicles. What are your feelings about a possible blue and gray Batsuit?
