New Batman costume and Batmobile more faithful than original – and that’s a good thing

Zack Snyder's Ben Afflect Batman and Batmobile Batman vs Superman

Behold! Ben Affleck and the Batmobile for Zack Snyder’s upcoming Batman vs. Superman film.

Two things.

One: such an awesome suit. That’s about as faithful as it gets when it comes to adapting Frank Miller’s Batman: The Dark Knight Returns costume. Snyder has already come out and said he plans to draw heavily from that comic, but this is pretty on the nose, right down to the fat bat symbol. There’s no black underwear (thank God) but the grey body armour is much more faithful to Batman’s various comic incarnations. Snyder is definitely going a different direction after seven movies of molded black rubber/kevlar body armour, and it’s much-appreciated in this little corner of the internet.

Even the thick belt pouches are vintage Miller.

Here’s a look at the Batman: Arkham City video game skin so you can see how close the Affleck version will be. Heck, even the ears are smaller like those on ‘Fatman.’

As for the Batmobile, again, it looks like Snyder is going with something already out there in the Batman mythos. The cockpit of the Batmobile certainly looks reminiscent of the new Arkham Knight Batmobile. We haven’t seen the rest of the car yet, but take a look and decide for yourself.

With filming underway and an expected release date of 2016, there’s still plenty of time for Snyder to tease us with more images.

I’m sure we’ll be back and dissecting the Wonder Woman costume in the next few months.

Or the name of the as-yet-untitled film.
