This is one thing the ten month delay on Batman vs Superman shouldn't effect too much, as there is no way someone doesn't get a shot of the new suit if Warner Bros. doesn't decide to release it officially at some point this year. A select few that have seen the suit aren't holding back in getting fans pumped up for the new look. During an interview on the red carpet for the SAG awards, Jennifer Garner had this to say about her husband's new duds.
I’ve seen the suit, the suit is unbelievably cool. It’s a total reinvention, it looks great.
ComicBookTherapy adds to the excitement Jennifer Garner caused the other day, with Kevin Smith chiming in about Zack Snyder showing the suit off to him with Affleck wearing it.
I talked about it on Hollywood Babble-On, but I have seen the suit. I did this Man Of Steel Yahoo, fan event when the DVD came out. I was hosting Zack Snyder was there, Amy Adams, we had Henry Cavill from satellite over in the UK, and you know it was all about Man of Steel. And at one point Zack talked a little bit about the future and Batman Vs Superman, but when the show was all done, Zack was all like ‘Kev come here, come here’, and he takes me over to the corner and whips out his phone, and he shows me a picture of Batman. Live action version of Batman. A very familiar Batman, I might add. It didn’t look like any of the cinematic Batmans that have ever gone before. He shows me that picture and behind Batman…Superman in the suit looming in the distance. Both on a roof top kind of thing. It was on a set, a little set the put together for this photo shoot. So I was like ‘Oh my god! Is that the suite?! The suit looks amazing! Did you get people to model it?’ And he goes, ‘That’s your boy.’ And I look closely and it’s Ben Affleck wearing the suit. The suit, it 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—ing pleased. I’m going to tell you that right now. They gave you the suit you all wanted to see.
It sounds like we are going to get something a bit more traditional finally, something with some black and gray and not just black body armor. Hopefully they release an image soon, it would be nice to see a well put together image first instead of a grainy, distant, spy photo.
Interestingly enough, Affleck was silent on the issue of the new suit at first, but in this super-exclusive fake interview with us, he had this to say about his portrayal.
I'm the best Batman in the game! When you try me with a sorry ass batsuit like nu-Robocop, that's the result you gonna get! Don't you ever talk about me!
