Jennifer Garner has seen the new Batsuit and says it is a "total reinvention"

Jan. 20, 2014by:

Despite the news that we have to wait until 2016 to see BATMAN VS SUPERMAN, that doesn't mean the film will not continue to prepare the massive production. Filming is still slated for this year which means Warner Bros is planning to film JUSTICE LEAGUE in conjunction with the MAN OF STEEL sequel or something bigger is in the works. Whether Ben Affleck's rumored leg injury has something to do with it, the continued tidbits about the batsuit continue to make their way to the surface.

This time, the information about the redesigned batsuit comes courtesy of Affleck's wife, Jennifer Garner. Garner was interviewed on the red carpet at the Screen Actors Guild Awards and asked about seeing Affleck in the suit. Check out her response below.

Garner is no stranger to the world of superheroes having played Elektra both in her own film and opposite Affleck in DAREDEVIL, so I wouldn't say she is talking out of her ass. I also think that her comments are in line with those from Kevin Smith who had equally positive things to say. I like hearing it is a "total reinvention" as the big screen batsuits so fat have all looked somewhat similar. While the molded body armor look does seem more realistic, it has never quite felt like Batman on the big screen. Here's hoping that we get to see something that lives up to the hype.

BATMAN VS SUPERMAN will now hit theaters on May 6, 2016.

It's not the suit I'm worried about...

Zack Snyders' films are visually stunning. The people cast in the films usually look the part and he is very good at sticking to source material visually. Say what you will about Watchman but the visuals were straight out of the comic and to express that in a different medium like film takes extraordinary skill and talent. However I found that his films always lack in pretty much everything else. The stories are weak, the character development is sub-par despite having excellent actors like

However I found that his films always lack in pretty much everything else. The stories are weak, the character development is sub-par despite having excellent actors like Kevin Costner who could have been given more to do in man of Steel. The Batman vs. Superman movie will look great. The trailer will be action-filled and the suits will look amazing because that is what Zack Snyder does best. He's a visual director. However it will ultimately fall short just like Man of Steel and Watchmen, that owl movie he did for Dreamworks and Sucker Punch. And I will say something that I know is very unpopular around these parts but 300 was not that great of a film either. It was better than the ones listed above though in my opinion.

A total reinvention? Ah, so it's furry, like a real bat? Cool.

I'd like to see a more fabric-like suit, similar to the third from the left up there. Sick of the kevlar look. Also definitely bring back the yellow insignia.

The yellow insignia only showed up in 1964 in Batman comics. I prefer the black bat he had originally and since the mid 90's. looks more inline with being in the shadows instead of having a YELLOW bullseye on him...which is what it was supposed to be.

This is coming from the person who thought being in Elektra - despite what happened to Daredevil - was a good idea? I'm going to take it with a grain of salt. Downvote me all you want people, but I'll say it for the millionth time; Ben Affleck isn't good enough to play a convincing Batman, let alone a grizzled, experienced one.

Oh wow, Ben Affleck's wife helps promote him. Shocking. About as shocking as when Affleck's best friend, Kevin Smith, said the same thing. What next? Are they going to call his mommy? Ask her if she is proud of her son?

Bring it on!

I like the Earth One suit. I hope it's something different but not too bizarre. And to the one speaking of "Batchubbs". He'll fuck you in the mouth with a bat-pinapple!

From what I understand, they are getting rid of the cape and at some point in act 3 he will have to fight a giant spider...

"Ben wears it in the bedroom to keep things interesting. He yells 'WHERE ARE THE OTHER DRUGS GOING?!' and I go 'I don't know, I swear to God!' and he goes 'SWEAR TO MEE!!!' I highly recommend it."

People, stop the fanboy bs! If it is a 'reinvention', this could mean anything from it having Grey tones rather than the black that has been a part of previous films. Hell, it could be more like the Batman Beyond suit or as previously noted by Kevin Smith be similar to that of the suit in Noel. Either way, it's a suit. Batman has had a shit ton of them. I can probably gaurentee he's not going to be wearing the his Zebra outfit or the batman of Zur En Arrh.

I thought someone who was at that podcast said he said it was Jim Lee influenced NOT Noel.

Just looked at the Hollywood Babble On site...it WAS Jim Lee. I don't know why this Noel rumor has continued.

Worrying

The word reinvention makes me think my hopes of seeing the Hush suit could be quashed. I'd love to see any suit that is grey instead of black.

Whatever it looks like at least it won't be a cgi suit like in green lantern. After playing the Arkham series I wouldn't mind seeing that crew make an all cgi/animated Batman movie. Mask of the phantasm was the shit

The "Beyond" suit to the far left just looks like Black Panther with a red V on the chest for flare.

Big surprise, Jennifer Garner is saying she likes the suit. What else would she say? She's promoting Ben Afflecks movie. If he was wearing a burlap sack the whole movie shed say she likes it. Now if Kevin Smith likes it, ill take his word that it's good.

I hope the suit resembles the suit above on the far right. It just looks really cool!

I'll be honest, with all the rumors and conjecture surrounding this movie, I've kind of decided to remove myself from the anticipation for this movie (especially now that it's been pushed back a year). I can patiently wait for them to reveal something. But it would be really cool to see something soon.

I think it's supposed to be Batman from The Dark Knight Returns. He was looking pretty thick in that comic.

Batchubs is, in fact, from The Dark Knight Returns. It featured a much older post-retirement Bruce Wayne.

And after watching DiCaprio in Wolf of Wall Street again for the second time, I think he would make for a terrific Lex Luthor.

Leonardo Dicaprio is one of my favorite actors of modern cinema but I honestly think casting him as Luthor would be a mistake, assuming he would even accept the part.,I'd love to see him in a super hero film but it has to fit.

I just think he would bring an intense performance with the role. In Wolf of Wall Street, Jordan obviously wasn't a good person, but DiCaprio's performance made you like the guy despite all the drugs, and booze he consumed and money he stole.

I want Lex to be like that. Someone who isn't the good guy, but someone we also somewhat root for too in some aspect.

I hope the new suit resembles the old fashioned suit. Sort of like the blue and grey suit mentioned above with a bit of Keaton's classic Batman suit.

Show us the suit or shut up.

I don't care how cool some film star or exec thinks it is. Let the fans decide.

Come on, grow a pair.

Hope it resembles the grey and blue look (fourth from the left in the above photo). Always dug that one the most.
