Ben Affleck's Batman suit on display

by Greg Belfrage

Fans at this year's Comic Con in San Diego will get a great look at the Batsuit from the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Actually, it's not the whole Batsuit. Only the cape and cowl being worn by Ben Affleck is on display (below).

Kevin Smith of Hollywood Babble-On has seen the full costume. He has said the Batsuit was taken directly out of the third issue of Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns (below).

Affleck's cape and cowl certainly seem to fit the Dark Knight Returns theme.

Some fans are expressing disappointment. Many had hoped Batman would return to his classic blue cape and cowl in the upcoming movie. Alas, it's not to be.

However, if Smith is correct, I'd view the black/gray color scheme as a refreshing change from the all black movie Batsuits of the past 25 years.
