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.

Hopefully grey and black! Been waiting for an actual grey Batman costume on film forever. Here's hoping it's a less hulking, slow Batman as well. Batsy's an agile fella!

I also am not sure we can take Kevin Smith at his word considering his close connections to the people involved also... so fingers crossed.

I imagine they're stick a bit closer to the New 52 suit, although I actually wouldn't mind something along the lines of the Arkham games.

I wish I could trust Kevin Smith, but I don't. That being said, I hope his appreciation turns out to be accurate. Based on leaked concept art it almost looked like the same type of getup from Dark Knight Rises.

It will be grey i think, be more inline with a famous older version of Batman. It has to be something iconic and not been done before base don the Statement and that's the most iconic suit yet to be committed to life action.

@mucklefluga: He's a major Batfan and is friends with Affleck. So his view is a bit bias.

Because Ben Affleck is his best friend?

And I'm not assuming this is anyone else's reason, but Kevin Smith has sold out pretty heavy the past several years too.

Affleck may be awesome as Batman, the suit may be awesome, but it's still going to be a movie directed by Zack Snyder when it all comes together. I sure hope they don't add Wonder Woman and ruin her on film like they did Superman.

I really don't understand why so many people want it to be grey.

All black is just so much more believable.

Why would you lighten up your suit if you're main advantages are usually sticking to the shadows?

@vitality: All black is sooooo boringggg. And it's been done, what, 7 times? It's not like grey would stick out in shadows. He's had grey in the comics forever. Has that ever required suspending disbelief more than anything else?

Well, Affleck is Smith's like, best friend, I'm pretty sure I'll take his opinion with a grain of salt.

I was a big fan of Man Of Steel so I'm trusting Snyder on the costume. Also Kevin Smith is a speaks his mind kind of guy. Since he approves of the costume I have high hopes for it. I really want it to have the yellow circle bat symbol again and not just the black bat.

@vitality: why does it need to be believable? This is a comic book movie based on a billionaire dressed like a bat and an alien with super powers...there shouldn't be anything believable about it

Haha...how is grey any less "boring" than black?

Anyways...to each their own I guess. I definitely prefer the all black suits.

Monotone vs two-tone. Lets you see definition for one thing. I'm sick to death of the all black, heavy armor suits.

My only issues are his legs are too thick in that image, but it was the best I could find. But yeah, I agree, this is one of the most realistic Batman suits I've seen in a while and it wouldn't be hard to translate something like this into a full-blown movie Bat-Suit.

Kevin Smith and Ben Affleck are not best friends. He hasn't talked to Ben Affleck in over 6-7 years (as he's stated on his many podcasts). You can say many things about Kevin Smith, but you can't say he isn't candid. He speaks what he feels and doesn't hold back. If he didn't like the suit, he would have said he didn't like it or he just wouldn't have mentioned it at all. He mentioned it on 'Hollywood Babble-On' which he hosts with Ralph Garmin, who is a huge Adam West fan. Kevin told Ralph that even he would be excited about the new suit, which leads me to believe it'll draw influence from Adam West and include Blue and Gray.

I'm skeptical but open to Afleck as Batman. Still, they need to get a picture of him in costume as soon as possible. By that, I mean a well lit shot, along the lines of that Cavill Superman picture with the crushed safe.

That said. Smith is hardly an unbiased source. By this new direction, I wonder if they could be going the way of the grey body-armor, ala the ARKHAM CITY game.

Im Guessing the original, Blue cowl, boots and gauntlets. Grey Suit. Yellow Emblem. However, it makes great sense that they would go new 52. There is no telling. Doesnt matter anyways. Ben Affleck is Batman....
