"Tell me. Do you bleed? You will." You can’t help but look at the new Batman costume from Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice -- the one modeled after Frank Miller’s legendary graphic novels – and think of that line. Look at this incredible suit of Bat-armor, which was on the Convention Center floor at San Diego Comic-Con during the annual Preview Night:
Want to see it again, from a different angle, where it looks like the eyes are staring down on you? Of course you do!
From what we were able to see on the Convention Center floor, this isn’t the only suit Batman (Ben Affleck) will wear in the movie. He won’t need full armor the entire time, after all. Sometimes you have to look sleek and nimble. For that, Batman will slip into these duds:
There aren’t a ton of changes in the Man of Steel’s suit from this initial adventure until now. Henry Cavill wears the same basic costume as he did in Man of Steel, only – in these pictures – the colors of the material pop way more than they did in Zack Snyder’s footage presentation. Maybe that will change come Saturday, when we hopefully get to see more of Batman v Superman?
And of course, as we know, the two men of the title will have to make room for a wonderful woman, aptly named Wonder Woman. While we still only have that one initial shot of Gal Gadot in her superhero armor, this up-close shot shows the Wonder Woman costume in full detail.
Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman had tremendous representation on the floor tonight, and we will have plenty more coming up, including an in-depth look at Batman’s assorted weapons. For now, that do you think of these suits?
