Kevin Smith Prasies Ben Affleck's Batsuit

The director/writer claims the costume for the upcoming movie "blew his mind."

While we anxiously wait for any new details surrounding Man of Steel II / Batman vs. Superman / whatever it'll be called, Kevin Smith has been lucky enough to actually see the costume Ben Affleck will wear. Sure, we're all kinds of jealous, but Smith was kind enough to tease the world about what he saw. Clearly, the director is in love with it and elaborated while on a podcast. He even implies people who hate Man of Steel or just the idea of the upcoming movie will dig it.

“I saw the 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 S**!’ 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 F*** all this person will be like ‘alright, I’m ready.'"

Unlike anything we've seen before, eh? Consider our interest piqued. Viners, what do you hope the costume looks like? Are you hoping it'll draw inspiration from certain versions of the Caped Crusader? Odds are we won't know for sure for a decent amount of time, but based on Smith's praise, it'll be fun to speculate until we're hit with the reveal.
