Ben Affleck's new Batman incarnation is coming with a brand new batsuit. Fans were hugely disappointed at the actor's casting in the iconic role, but it seems that at least the reboot is bringing a new batsuit. Comic god and filmmaker Kevin Smith stated in his recent Hollywood Babble-On podcast that he saw picture of the suit: "I saw the costume, more than that I saw him [Ben Affleck] in the costume...I don't want to give anything away cause that is up to them and stuff, but I am going to say this...I instantly bear hugged him."

Rumors about what the suit will look like have been running wild lately, now that fans seem to have begrudgingly accepted Affleck as the new caped crusader. However, Smith has revealed that this new film will bring something totally new: "You have not seen this costume in film before. Because every other movie has done this matrixy black armor thing...There wasn't a single nipple on this [frick]ing suit man. I think everyone is gonna be like 'Holy Shit!' We haven't been down this path before. Even the Hardest core "[frick] this movie" person will be like 'alright, I'm ready!'"

Batman's new suit may look something like this. There has been some speculation that director Zack Snyder is using the Batman costume design from the 2011 graphic novel "Batman: Noel" for inspiration for the new design. It will be a lot less sleek and Matrix-like than the Christian Bale version.
