Kevin Smith has more to Say About Ben Affleck's Batman Suit

Just yesterday Jennifer Garner talked to Entertainment Weekly and was asked about the Batman suit her husband Ben Affleck will be wearing in the upcoming film Batman Vs. Superman. She said, ”I’ve seen the suit. The suit is unbelievably cool. It’s a total reinvention. It looks great.” It's not much, but she obviously seems to like it. Prior to that, Kevin Smith revealed that he saw the suit as well and gushed about his excitement for it, saying, 

"You have not seen this costume in a movie, on film before. For a comic book fan, it was mind-bending… Because every other movie has done this Matrix-y black armor thing… There wasn’t a single nipple on this fucking suit man… I think everyone is just gonna be like ‘Holy Shit!’ It’s its own thing, man. We haven’t been down this path before."

Smith is back with another statement about the suit design that he saw. While talking to Comic Book Therapy, the writer and director said that they gave fans the suit "they always wanted to see." Here's the full quote,

“I talked about it on Hollywood Babble-On, but I have seen the suit. I did this Man Of Steel Yahoo, fan event when the DVD came out. I was hosting Zack Snyder was there, Amy Adams, we had Henry Cavill from satellite over in the UK, and you know it was all about Man of Steel. And at one point Zack talked a little bit about the future and Batman Vs Superman, but when the show was all done, Zack was all like ‘Kev come here, come here’, and he takes me over to the corner and whips out his phone, and he shows me a picture of Batman. Live action version of Batman. A very familiar Batman, I might add. It didn’t look like any of the cinematic Batmans that have ever gone before. He shows me that picture and behind Batman…Superman in the suit looming in the distance. Both on a roof top kind of thing. It was on a set, a little set the put together for this photo shoot. So I was like ‘Oh my god! Is that the suit?! The suit looks amazing! Did you get people to model it?’ And he goes, ‘That’s your boy.’ And I look closely and it’s Ben Affleck wearing the suit. The suit, it is not mine to spill, in terms of what it looks like, you’ll see it. They’ll tell you when they want you to know, but any Batman fan is going to be F—ing pleased. I’m going to tell you that right now. They gave you the suit you all wanted to see.”

I seriously can't wait to see the suit design for myself. I've got high expectations, and I'm expecting to be blown away by its awesomeness. One day the suit will be revealed to the world. In the meantime, all we have is the word of people who are lucky enough to have already seen it.
