While ‘Batman vs. Superman‘ has already started filming some very early scenes, we have yet to see Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, or, more importantly, as Batman. But, a new report says that we might already have a look at what Affleck’s Batman costume will look like in the upcoming film.
Comic Book Movie is reporting that director Zack Snyder is using the Batman costume design from the 2011 graphic novel “Batman: Noel” as the inspiration for the new suit in ‘Batman vs. Superman.’
The new movie is obviously trying to differentiate between Affleck’s Batman and Christian Bale‘s version and will redesign both Batman’s suit and the Batmobile. If the film follows the “Noel” look, it will have smaller, stubbier ears, recessed further on the head, a more angular shape on the eyeholes and a more pointed nose. The cape also extends further down the chest, underneath a larger, black-on-grey Bat-logo.
How close the ‘Batman vs. Superman’ costume hews to the “Noel” duds remain to be seen as we’re sure that Snyder and Affleck will have some flourishes/additions, but it appears to be a good launching point. Thematically, it would also be interesting to see the “older” Batman we’re promised in a grey, faded suit, instead of the dark black of the ‘Dark Knight’ trilogy.
