Zack Snyder, the director of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the upcoming Justice League, has released an exclusive look at Batman’s latest suit. This happens to be his tactical suit, and gosh does it have our nerd senses tingling!
This Tactical batsuit has been part of a comparison with the Nite Owl suit seen in Snyder’s Watchmen movie, but you can decide for yourself – check out the full image below.
The image shows Ben Affleck’s Batman stood next to the Batmobile inside a facility (which could be the Batcave) while pulling a lever. The Batmobile looks prime for combat so even though he’s leaving his murderous ways behind, he isn’t afraid to bring out the heavy weapons when needed.
The suit itself isn’t quite at the Dark Knight level, but it’s a slightly amped up version of his normal suit. Here’s what costume designer Michael Wilkinson told ComicBook.com: “So in the final chapter of our film, Batman realizes he has to step up his game a little bit and he and Alfred have been working on developing a suit that’s even more protective and offers more deflection than the classic suit,” Sounds sensible, Bats! “So in a sense, it’s a piece of armour.”
“So you can see the classic suit underneath, but on top are straps and layers of the carbon fiber, strengthening armour plates, he’s got sort of a leather layer upon here that he is strapping all over his plates onto the wrapping around his body and offering just a little more protection than the old. He’s also going to get a new cowl with some new tech details and that gives him even more protection. We’re going to do some goggles for him, a new tech cape made out of our carbon fiber weave.”
