Concept Art For Ben Affleck's Batman Costume!

Now before all the fanboys start lighting their torches and setting up the Affleck effigy, this is only about the costume! Just remember; everyone had a fit when Michael "Mr. Mom" Keaton was cast in 1989, and we all know how that turned out!

This is a piece of concept art that has hit the internet featuring a design by comic book artist Steve Scott who worked with Christopher Nolan on The Dark Knight comic book. I seriously doubt this is the design or look they are going for in the movie--this is just his vision of what could be. I kinda dig it - it's got a little "Batman Beyond" thrown in there with the red bat. I love the note at the bottom that says, "Ben wants no bat nipples." I bet that's in his contract.

  1. I kinda dig this one too! I'm probably one of the few people who didn't lose my sh!t when I heard that Ben Affleck was being cast as Batman. The way I see it, Val Kilmer was in Batman Forever and I still managed to like that one. Of course....I'm the Midnight Cinephile and liking bad movies is kinda my thing.....so......yeah.....

  3. Ben Affleck gets a lot of crap, but "Gigli" aside, I think he's a great actor. Look at Argo, Good Will Hunting, or The Town - he was awesome in those flicks! I think the main source of the griping is due to him being "too mainstream".
