A bit of breaking and semi-breaking news: Zack Snyder, director of Man of Steel and the upcoming Batman vs Superman and Justice League films, has tweeted the first shots of the Batmobile and of Ben Affleck as Batman.
With the Batmobile, you can definitely see the comic book influences, and maybe even a little 1989 Burton thrown in for good measure. What we’ve seen of it looks pretty awesome so far, in my opinion.
You can definitely see how Affleck has bulked up for the part in this shot, and though the picture is in black and white, you can tell that the earlier rumors that designers were going for a classic blue and gray look in this film are fairly accurate. Also, I’m digging the short ears and big bat symbol on the chest; they make me feel like I’m looking at a live action version of Frank Miller’s Batman with a little Jim Lee thrown in for good measure.
I’m hoping we get more information and pictures as filming picks up. I’m certain everyone is also looking forward to seeing Gal Gadot in her Wonder Woman outfit nearly as much as they were looking forward to seeing Batfleck. So far, I’m still on board and willing to give this a shot.
What do you all think? Let me know in the comments below, or tweet me @quaintjeremy!
