“Comic Book Men” creator says recent monochromatic photo is “not a representation of what the suit looks like” in newly titled “Dawn of Justice” Batman movie
Kevin Smith revealed that Ben Affleck‘s Batsuit in the upcoming “Batman vs. Superman” movie — now officially titled “Dawn of Justice” — will be decked out in blue and gray, details not visible in the recent monochromatic photo released by director Zach Synder.
The filmmaker dished about the actor’s costume on the Hollywood Babble-On podcast last Friday and challenged a recent monochromatic photo.
“As you may remember I saw a photo of the Batsuit many months ago and a lot of people asked online, ‘Is that the picture you saw?’ No. That is a very cool picture, but that’s not the picture I saw,” Smith said. “They put it on a fake rooftop and they lit it and stuff like that, but it was in color and you could see every piece of detail.”
“I’ve seen some people online go ‘Why is this f—ing suit any different than the Chris Nolan Batsuit? It’s all one f—ing color?'” Smith said. “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.”
“I was always kind of keeping it quiet until they revealed it, but they’ve f—ing revealed it. You can kind of see and 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,” said the creator and star of the AMC reality series “Comic Book Men.”
“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.”
