Ben Affleck's Batman Suit & Armor
Published by Courtney Russell / October 8,2015
The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice costume designer Michael Wilkinson recently gave some insight on some of costume designs for the movie, the one that caught our attention particularly was the design for Ben Affleck's Batsuit.
"For Batman, it was really important for Zack that we created a whole new Batman," Wilkinson told DC All Access. "And he said, 'The most important thing for our Batman is that he comes across a real hulking, big guy.' He's super-pumped up. He's going to be even bigger than Superman's silhouette. So his strength is not through armor and gadgets and things, it is that he is a tower of muscle. Zack Snyder is a huge fan of Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns and we looked a lot at that silhouette." Adding that Ben Affleck's Batman cowl has full-range of motion.

From what we have seen in the trailers and in the recent showcase of the Batsuit and Armor at this years' Comic Con we can expect a to see a truly fearsome comic book like representation of Batman. With the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on March 25, 2016, the DC Extended Universe, as they’re calling their connected world of films, kicks off in earnest. Later that year, Suicide Squad follows, and after that, we’re getting Wonder Woman, Aquaman, two Justice League movies, and much, much more. It’s a good time to be a fan of comic book movies.
