Kevin Smith got to see Batman and Superman together thanks to Zack Snyder

Jan. 21, 2014by: Niki Stephens

With BATMAN VS SUPERMAN being delayed another year don’t expect to see any rumors die down. One we’ll probably be hearing more about is the “beautiful, fantastic reinvention” that is the Bats suit. Kevin Smith saw it, Jennifer Garner saw it, and Smith got to see it again. But this time it was thanks to director Zack Snyder.

I know you guys might be tired of the Batsuit descriptions so far but this was a cool one I wanted to share.

First, Smith addressed the rumors of Affleck's so-called leg injury during his Fatman on Batman podcast:

I also heard that they pushed the shooting because Ben Affleck hurt his leg, while they were shooting or something like that, which I don’t know. I just saw him on some awards shows and he didn’t look like he had hurt his leg, so maybe that was just a rumor.

Then Smith went into the photo that he got a glimpse of thanks to Snyder during the Yahoo fan event for the Man of Steel DVD release:

He shows me a picture of Batman, a live action version of Batman. A very familiar Batman, I might add. Didn’t look like any of the cinematic Batmans that have ever gone before. He shows me that picture, and behind Batman is Superman in the suit, looming in the distance. Both like on a rooftop kind of thing. It was on a set, a little set they put together for this photo suit.

“I’m like ‘Oh, my god! That’s the suit. The suit looks amazing, man. What did you get people to model it?’ He goes, ‘That’s your boy.’ And I look closely, and it’s Ben Affleck wearing the suit. The suit is not mine to spill in terms of what it looks like. You’ll see it. They’ll tell you when they want you to know. But any Batman fan is going to be f*cking pleased. I’m going to tell you that right now.”

This is why I posted the above picture illustrated by Jim Lee of Superman and Batman, though they aren't really together. This is what I immediately thought of. Smith let it slip before that the suit looked a lot like Lee’s version, and it’s one that we’ve had yet to see on the big screen. It’s one of my favorite depictions of both characters as well. So here’s hoping for that!

BATMAN VS SUPERMAN is due out on May 6, 2016.

Does Kevin Smith and Ben Affleck run the joblo.com site now? I'll reserve any judgement until I actually see something.

They should give Kevin Smith a small role in this movie. Thoughts ?

I liked his (animated) cameo in Superman: Doomsday, but he doesn't need to have one in Batman vs. Superman.

Dejavu?

Meh, Kevin Smith hyperboling something Affleck-related again. It feels like we've been here a dozen times before.

I'm happy for my friends and others who will finally get the movie they have been dreaming about for years, be it Superman vs Batman or JLA, but I am soooo over this movie already that I couldn't care less if they never make it. All the Batsuit, the Wonder Woman this and that and every other character rumors are getting old real fast!

You're sure we're talking about the *Batsuit*, right?

The only thing that seems is going to make this suit standout from the other batman movie is if batman is wearing underwear over tights.

Enough already!

If you don't have a picture to share, stop writing about it. All JoBlo is doing is fanning the flames. Stop talking about it and they might actually throw you a bone.

Meh.

Chris Terrio better be a screenwriting wizard because that's the only way to save this potential piece of shit.

I'm pretty sick of hearing from Kevin Smith. It just sounds like he's got a hard on for Ben.

I'm guessing this has more to do with Smith's man-crush on Affleck than it does with how the bat suit looks.

Is this going to be an everyday thing here? Everyday we get several frivolous Batman vs Superman articles? Cause that's what seems to be happening. Joblo.com seems to be promoting this film more than WB. We all know Kevin Smith saw the Batsuit. This site already wrote several articles over it months ago. We just got an article telling us Affleck's wife saw it. I'm sure a lot of people have seen it. Enough already. Jesus. We don't need to have these non-articles shoved in our face constantly.

Affleck is going to own the role and deliver a great performance. Can't wait to see him in the iconic suit.

No matter how cool or groundbreaking the suit may be, we're still talking about a Zack Syder movie with a David Goyer script. MOS while a financial success was ultimately a heavily divided failure both in writing and in its presentation. I don't see any changes in quality unless either one of them is dropped from the film.

Anyone remember how much smoke Smith blew up our asses over Daredevil? Before the film came out, Smith acted like everything about Daredevil was the most perfect thing ever. He claimed that Affleck not only delivered the best performance of his career, but that Affleck delivered bar none the best performance of a superhero ever, and compared Affleck's Daredevil performance to Christopher Reeve's Superman performance. And he claimed that Daredevil is "The best comic book movie we've seen

And he claimed that Daredevil is "The best comic book movie we've seen since... maybe THE ROCKETEER." - link to Smith's own words [link]
Of couse this was before everyone saw how shitty the film actually was, then Smith changed his tune. Like he always does.
