Thought this was a pretty interesting story over the weekend. During the latest Hollywood Babble On podcast episode, which took place during the Warner Bros. Fan event to celebrate the Blu-ray release of Man Of Steel, Kevin Smith shared some cool news that director Zack Snyder showed Smith a picture of the Batsuit prototype that actor Ben Afleck will be wearing for the upcoming Batman Vs. Superman blockbuster!
Smith went on to say that he gave “instantly bear hugged” Snyder. Check below for full story. From what I gathered, it seems possible that the classic blue and grey Batman might be making a return to the silver screen that we haven’t seen since actor Adam West put on the suit decades ago?

“I saw the Batman costume. More than that I saw a picture of him (Affleck) in the costume. Now, I don’t want to give anything away ’cause that is up to them and stuff, but I am going to say this, I instantly bear hugged him (Snyder). You have not seen this costume in a movie on film before, and for a comic book fan it was mind bending. I was like ‘Get out of here, only you have enough power to pull this off.’ Because everyone always like does this Matrix/X-Men black armor…It was fantastic. I’m already a flag waver for this movie, but the costume, it blew my mind. I think everyone is just gonna be like ‘Holy ****!’ It’s its own thing, man. It’s like we haven’t been down this path at all. I was so elated….Even the hardest core **** all this person will be like ‘alright, I’m ready.'”
