Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Holy crap. Wasn't expecting to get a glimpse of Affleck in the Batsuit today as well! Very cool.

And while I agree about the logo being the same color as the suit, it at least looks a lot more prominent and hard to miss than the ones on the Nolan suits (which you often had to struggle to even make out). And while I've always preferred the longer ears to the shorter ones, I'm sure I'll get used to that part as well.

Hard to make much sense of the Batmobile so far, but I like that it at least has the standard style of cockpit again.

I'm not so sure we are seeing Affleck. It looks like CGI to me.

Hmm, lightening it up you can make out more of the belt. And there doesn't appear to be much in the way of gloves there.

Well, Savage Dragon could still be correct if our universe is actually a computer simulation.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Is that a reflection of The Joker on the left?

Batty and the car look pretty much the same as ever to me. Nothing changed as much as Superman's MoS look.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Affleck is so muscular (or the suit so padded) it almost makes him look stocky. Bearing in mind that he's 6'4", he must be packing a lot of muscle (again, assuming that it's not padding and I don't think it is). Taller ears might have avoided this but presumably this is the look they've aimed for - kinda Frank Millar, IMHO.

The more I look at the car, it really makes me think of the chassis or body of the Burton-era car transplanted onto the wheels and exhaust ports (remembering yesterday's teaser tweet) of the tumbler. I hope that when it's seen completely, it brings something a little more original to the table.

All I see on the left is the Batmobile wheel.

Well the muscles are clearly sculpted (as they always are in today's superhero costumes), but the underlying bulk is almost certainly his.

Personally I'm just glad to get away from the segmented armor look of the Nolan films. It worked fine for those movies, but it's still far from my ideal Batman costume.

And I especially love that he's got a proper neck again, and not the skinny action figure neck he had in TDK and TDKR (which may have been more practical, but always looked really off to me).

^ Yeah, there's padding in the way that e.g. Cavill's suit had padding to complement an already-muscular physique. But not in the way that, e.g., Michael Keaton's suit provided essentially all the physique and muscle, with the wearer having a fairly average frame underneath.

The first thing that comes to my mind after seeing that picture is

Batman: I want you to remember, Clark…in all the years to come…in your most private moments…I want you to remember…my hand…at your throat…I want…you to remember…the one man who beat you.
