It has been reported that Director Kevin Smith has seen an image of Ben Affleck in the new Batman outfit for the 2015 summer blockbuster and was very impressed, saying it is something that fans will love and has never been seen on film before. Given his friendship with Affleck, I take his enthusiasm with a grain of salt, but I do have hope that Zach Snyder will give us something closer to the comics than the all-black body armor look that we have seen for so long now. My real hope is that we will see some way to include the white eyes look from comics and animation, I loved it when Bale's Batman had the sonar lenses to briefly achieve that appearance. Rumors are that the costume will look somewhat like Lee Bermejo's take on it in Batman: Noel, so I don't think I am going to get my wish there.
