Kevin Smith says Batman vs. Superman batsuit is blue & grey

12 months agoby:

When Zack Snyder revealed the first look at Ben Affleck in the new Batsuit for BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN, you better believe people started talking. They analyzed everything including the shape, size, texture, and structure. The photo is in black and white, so the debate began about what version and color of the suit we would eventually see come show time.

Well, we might have some clarity on the topic; you will recall Batman fan and friend of Affleck Kevin Smith admitted he'd seen the suit. "You have not seen this costume in a movie, on film before", Smith said at the time. If there is one thing Kevin Smith likes to do passionately, it's talk. So he took the time recently to discuss the Snyder image and clarify his previous statements.

Smith said the following on Hollywood Babble-On:

As you may remember, I saw a photo of the Batsuit many months ago, and many people asked online, ‘Is that the picture you saw?’ No, that is a very cool picture, but that is not the picture I saw….They put it on a fake rooftop, and they lit it up. But it was in color, and you could see every piece of detail. So I’ve seen some people online go, ‘Why is this fucking suit any different than the Chris Nolan Batsuit, it’s all one fucking color.’ 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. So what the suit looks like, and I was always kind of keeping it quiet until they revealed it, but they’ve revealed it. And you can kind of see, and anybody that…you’ve seen some people take the picture and color it online. If you want to see what this fucking suit looks like, you just go to Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, go to the third book, Hunt the Dark Knight…it’s the exact fucking outfit he’s wearing. That’s why I hugged that guy all those months ago.

Here’s the image from "Hunt the Dark Knight":

So you could put stock into something Kevin Smith saw seven months ago, or you could assume Snyder and his people may have taken (or will further take) a few liberations with the legendary suit. The image of Affleck does closely resemble the blue and grey suit (ears and symbol size) seen above. But persoanlly think there's a lesson in all of this: be patient and shout about things when there is at least a trailer. Otherwise you just get a sad Batman.

Do you think we will see the suit at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con?

If we all follow the verbal diarrhea which is Kevin Smiths Twitter account, I'm sure he'll keep us all updated on this film.

I'm Confused

Is the fucking suit blue or not? I have Graham telling me it is but feedback below says otherwise. I've noticed crap like this with other articles by same guy...gets frustrating.

Finally getting THE GOD DAMN BATMAN?

Keaton was great. Bale was good. But we have yet to get the Batman on the big screen that we see in the comics. And I think we will finally get that. FINALLY.

Doesn't matter.
This rushed movie i going to be just as awful as its predecessor and it's rushed franchised sequel. I'm glad they finally got the colours of the batsuit right after all these years, but it's a shame it's for a film I have zero excitement or expectations for. One good batsuit cannot make up for all of the daft decisions these guys have made from the character assassination of Man of Steel, onwards to this badly cast, hero crammed sequel.

Rushed!? Are you even serious!? It's still two years away! I'm pretty pissed by the way WB is handling their properties but rushed is definitely not the problem. It's actually quite the opposite

No he didn't.

What he said was; "If you want to see what this fucking suit looks like, you just go to Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, go to the third book, Hunt the Dark Knight…it’s the exact fucking outfit he’s wearing. " The suit in that book (chapter if you're reading the collected novel) is black and grey, and the suit in the pic Snyder released is clearly black with a grey body suit too.

" The suit in that book (chapter if you're reading the collected novel) is black and grey, and the suit in the pic Snyder released is clearly black with a grey body suit too. He stops wearing the blue suit in DKR after he gets his ass kicked by the Mutant Leader, as Frank used the costume as a visual metaphor for his mental state growing darker.

I'm kind of curious about how much this movie is supposedly influenced by DKR though. There isn't a lot left of that book that hasn't already been done, Nolan pretty much mined everything except the Superman bits of DKR to make his trilogy. Even Catwoman kind of fills the role of Carrie Kelly as the female sidekick in training in TDKR, as Bane stands in for the Mutant Leader.

I can dig it.

I saw one of the fan edits of the pic which made the suit gray, and the cowl and cape a dark midnight blue, and it looked fucking awesome!

They probably have a couple of Bat Suits for Batman in the movie i.e. Batman Forever where Batman has his usual costume but also has the emergency Sonar suit.

sorry

Don't mean to be a jerk, but FYI that suit in TDKR is not blue... it's grey and black (or charcoal, or dark grey, whatever, but not blue). It's actually sort of symbolically important given the changes Miller brought to the character in that book. Personally, blue, grey, or black, I don't care if the film is good.

IT"S BLACK & GREY!!! The Blue & Grey costume is trashed at the comic at that point, and there are tons of photo's showing the Black & Grey suit from the part in the GN that Smith points out!

Optimus, I find it funny about the things you say about Soloist. I mean you say he seems to comment every post on here and you have taken notice of that. Does that mean you don't have a job yourself since you have the free time to notice these thing?

Love the fact that the suit is blue and grey and that the inspiration is coming from Miller's Dark Knight Returns. That's what this new Batman needs; something completely new, fresh, different, and exciting. Having this suit is a great start to achieving that and making this new version of Batman stand out more then the previous versions.

But I always thought the Bat suit would look great under Snyder's guidance. I mean one of the best parts about Watchmen was how awesome and colorful all
