As we know, Kevin Smith saw Ben Affleck's Batsuit long before any of us did, because they're friends and being a celebrity fan of something has its advantages. Now, in the wake of the first official photo released via Zack Snyder, Smith is talking again and giving out more hints about what we can expect.
Because, according to Smith in his latest Hollywood Babble-On podcast (transcribed via ComicBook.com), there's still plenty to see.
As you may remember, I saw a photo of the Batsuit many months ago, and many people asked online, 'Is that the picture you saw?' No, that is a very cool picture, but that is not the picture I saw
As for the photo he did see:
They put it on a fake rooftop, and they lit it up. But it was in color, and you could see every piece of detail. So I've seen some people online go, 'Why is this f***ing suit any different than the Chris Nolan Batsuit, it's all one f***ing color.' It's like, 'Dude, that's a monochrome photo. You know what that means, one chrome.
That's not a representation of what the suit looks like. So what the suit looks like, and I was always kind of keeping it quiet until they revealed it, but they've revealed it. And you can kind of see, and anybody that…you've seen some people take the picture and color it online. If you want to see what this f***ing suit looks like, you just go to Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns, go to the third book, Hunt the Dark Knight…it's the exact f***ing outfit he's wearing. That's why I hugged that guy all those months ago.
And as for the Batmobile, he words it as if he's just speculating, but he probably knows more than your average insider:
I will put this to you. What if it's one of a few Batmobiles? What if that's one of a few outfits in the movie? I suspect that's the case.
