Batfleck & His Wheels

Now that Zack Snyder has tweeted the tease of the ‘bile yesterday and then given more of a reveal today with Ben Affleck in THE suit the interwebs has gone insane!

The Batmobile had me concerned at what seemed to be a tail fin reminding me of Schumacher’s absolute abominations.  Seeing this latest image reminds me of Burton’s Batmobile with the cool looking windows and looks like it’s a mish-mash of the Tumbler as well with the cool plated armour and grittier look.


But, as I posted on Facebook last night:



It looks like my wish came true and then some!  The suit has taken its inspiration from Frank Miller’s Dark Knight Returns with the over-sized bat symbol, shorter ears and very grey look (a lot of grey in this so it’s possible it’s just effect but now I know why Kevin Smith got so excited.
Dark Knight Returns is clearly where Zack would get a lot of inspiration from; the relationship between Batman and Superman, an older and grittier Batman and, if the subtitle were to remain or at least the action it leads us to believe, an epic battle between Gotham’s finest and Krypton’s last son.
Jay may have said that Affleck was the bomb in Phantoms…but he’s looking like he’s set to move the Doomsday Clock to midnight in this attire and I still cannot wait to catch this flick.  I believe in you Zack Snyder…do the source material proud!
What’s your thoughts?
