Last year Kevin Smith was given a first hand look at Ben Affleck’s Batsuit, to which he freaked out about in excitement. Now fast forward to the last couple weeks. Zack Snyder went to twitter and shocked everyone with the reveal of not one, but two photos (see here and here) for Batman and his Batmobile in Batman/Superman.
Since the reveal the internet has kicked up a storm, a storm to which Kevin Smith has no decided to talk about 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 f***ing suit any different than the Chris Nolan Batsuit, it’s all one f***ing 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 f***ing 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 f***ing outfit he’s wearing. That’s why I hugged that guy all those months ago.”
When the host then suggested that the photo of the Batmobile initially looked like the tumbler, Smith responded:
“I will put this to you. What if it’s one of a few Batmobiles? What if that’s one of a few outfits in the movie? I suspect that’s the case.”
So the question is, are the two photos of the Batmobile that Zack Snyder released different cars entirely? Some have began to speculate that they indeed are due to the obviously inconsistent spoiler/fins on the back of the car in each photo.
It would make sense that if they are going for a “Seasoned” Batman that he would already have a substantial arsenal in his Batcave, so having multiple suits, cars, and other gadgets are a given.
Batman/Superman is currently set for an April 6th 2016 release date.
