The new Batsuit is a “total reinvention”

21 January 2014

According to Jennifer Garner.

Details for Zack Snyder’s forthcoming Batman vs Superman movie have been sparse, to say the least, so we in the movie news business have been scrabbling for every morsel we can find. And here’s an interesting little scrap: Jennifer Garner - wife of the new Batman, Ben Affleck - has revealed that Bruce Wayne’s new suit is “unbelievably cool”.

In a red-carpet interview with Entertainment Tonight at the star studded Screen Actor’s Guild (SAG) awards, Garner confirmed that she had seen the suit and was pretty impressed.

“It’s a total reinvention,” she claimed. “It looks great”. Sadly, that’s as far as she was willing to divulge.

As many blogs noticed, Garner’s comments chime with Kevin Smith’s similar recent observations. The writer-director, a longtime friend of Affleck and a passionate comic book nerd, revealed on his podcast that he had seen the suit, and announced:

“You have not seen this costume in a movie, on film before. For a comic book fan, it was mind-bending… Because every other movie has done this Matrix-y black armor thing… There wasn’t a single nipple on this f****ng suit man… I think everyone is just gonna be like ‘Holy S***!’

Batman vs Superman - still just a working title at this stage - will now be released two months later than originally planned, on July 17th, 2015.
