Your first look at the new dark knight in BATMAN VS SUPERMAN

1 min read

But does it come in black? Ever since Batman hit the big screen, he’s been rocking some form of protective armour, from the classic all-black batsuit in Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman movie, through to a more segmented and realistic protective covering in The Dark knight and The Dark knight Rises. Those have all been great suits, but they didn’t exactly look like something from the comic books. Your next Batman however, certainly does.

Click the photo below for a much, much bigger version of Ben Affleck’s Batman:

A tad too dark (knight) for you? Well here’s a version which has been lightened up:

It’s pure Dark Knight Returns, from the looks of the outfit. The smaller ears, the back to grey primary colour and the massive chest symbol are all drawn from the classic costume that Frank Miller designed back in 1986. Here’s a picture of that outfit:

Dark Knight

And if you look even further, you’ll notice that this costume has a fantastic texture:

Batman (1)

Honestly, this is the closest that we’ve ever come to a proper comic book costume for the big screen. Oh, and do I need to mention DAT BATMOBILE? Zack Snyder is clearly going for a more stylish visual look in his Batman vs Superman movie. And I like what I see so far. Batman vs Superman is out in May 2016.

        Can’t blame him for the horrible script he was given for that movie.
