Kevin Smith Has Seen Affleck’s Batman Suit and Loves It

Kevin Smith revealed on November 9th during his weekly Hollywood Babble-On podcast that he has seen a photo of Affleck in the Batman costume which he will don in Batman vs. Superman. Smith claims he was so thrilled with what he saw, that he hugged the film’s director Zack Snyder.

Smith says, “You have not seen this costume on film before. For a comic book fan, it was mind-bending… Because every other movie does this Matrix-y black armor thing…There wasn’t a single nipple on this suit. I think everyone is just gonna be like ‘Holy S#-t!’ It’s its own thing. We haven’t been down this path before. Even the hardest core, most skeptical person will be like, ‘Alright, I’m ready for this!‘”

An additional comment that was bleeped-out during the actual podcast (Probably to avoid spoiling too much about the new Batsuit) has been making the rounds via some people who were there, and apparently Smith said the suit seems “very Jim Lee influenced.”
