For those that missed the reveal on Twitter, the new costume that will be worn by Ben Affleck was posted by Zack Snyder.
Snyder is notorious for his Twitter teases and reveals. His latest intrigue began earlier this week when he Tweeted a partially covered “Batmobile”. The new car is reminiscent to the style of Dark Knight Returns and is only an inch away from sporting Burton-esque Batmobile fins.
The big reveal came as Snyder removed the tarp and garnished the new look Bat car with what is to be the costume that Affleck will wear.
The reveal came with many cheers and jeers as Twitter unleashed its opinions on Gotham’s protector. Many commented on how similar it looked to the Dark Knight costume. I think the costume looks a little “inflated” like a bulbous balloon. Although there is some texture, the costume is very rustic and plain but as one person pointed out,
“The reason Batman is so fat/bulky is so they can justify him trading blows with Superman”.
This could be true, but let’s keep in mind that Ben Affleck is 6’3 (without the costume’s boots) and is in shape befitting the Dark Knight. Without the suit, he is a forgettable counter to Henry Cavill already. It is hard to see what parts are “the suit” and what are Affleck’s in this still photo. The true test will be on the big screen when we finally get the reveal.
What do you think of the NEW Bat suit? Let us know in the comments?
