The tactical Batsuit will protect Batman from the intergalactic forces of the villain Steppenwolf. As fans will remember, in a key dream sequence from “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” Batman was assaulted by creatures known as Parademons and got knocked out.
So naturally, Bruce Wayne upgraded both his Batman suit and armor and is ready for a rematch against Steppenwolf and the Parademons when they return next year in “Justice League.”
From the looks of the tactical Batsuit, Batman is going to even the score.
Why are the Parademons here on Earth? They’re after the mother boxes.
“[Back] before there was a history … mankind, the Atlanteans — before they were under water — the Amazonians and, actually, the old gods, teamed together and decided that — based on an event that happened — these mother boxes were going to be placed in the care of, as I say, the Amazonians, mankind and the Atlanteans,” producer Charles Roven revealed, according to Mashable. “So that allows us to get into some of those environments.”
According to DC Comics, “a mother box is a sentient supercomputer with seemingly infinite capabilities,” many of which are unknown even to the users with which they often bond. In fact, mother boxes are known to self-destruct upon the death of the user.
“Justice League” is set to open in theaters on Nov. 17, 2017.
