Last week Zack Snyder revealed the first image of Ben Affleck wearing the Batsuit for the anticipated “Man of Steel” sequel that opens in theaters on May 6, 2016. Now Kevin Smith, who had a chance to see the suit months ago, claims that the suit is a direct influence from the one used in Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns down right to the color. Apparently he may have seen a different suit.
“That’s not a representation of what the suit looks like,” Smith said via the Hollywood Babble-On podcast. “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 f***ing 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 f***ing outfit he’s wearing. That’s why I hugged that guy all those months ago.”
Smith also thinks that the film may feature several Batsuits and Batmobiles.
