Zack Snyder redefined “Twitter Bomb” by Tweeting to fans both their first look at the new Batmobile and of Ben Affleck in the new Batsuit. You can click on either photo for a HD version that shows more detail, but clearly Frank Miller’s Dark Knight Returns is a huge influence on both the suit and the car. The logo is the thicker version of the bat, the costume stockier and giving off a Miller-esque vibe. It’s actually easier to see more of Ben in the suit, and he looks great, than it is to get a full picture of the Batmobile, but it looks very much inspired by the one from The Dark Knight Returns also. I like it. I’ve got to say, I like the look. It’s distinct from Nolan’s trilogy, but still very much in the mainstream Batman ballpark.
Let me know what you think below and Batman vs. Superman will hit theaters on May 6, 2016; the anticipated film also stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto and Ray Fisher.
