    Affleck was born to do this.

  • SAMURAI36

    Utterly phenomenal.

    • Chris Schroeder

      I’ve never agreed with you more than this. Just… wow.

  • SAMURAI36

    For those idiots that are trying to draw the Nite-Owl similarities, those are actually goggles around Batman’s cowl, mot a part of the cowl itself.

    • Hinscher

      Yea it looks like he was doing some wielding or something.
      But either way, Nite-Owl is a Batman rip-off and Snyder also did that movie.

      • SAMURAI36

        All true points.

      • Fenix

        Nite Owl is Alan Moore’s version of blue beetle.

    • Carl

      Yeah but Nite Owl had goggles that went around his cowl in the movie.

      I’m not saying it looks bad, the suit has that Arkham game look, which is great, but the similarities are there from the neck up.

      • Fenix

        Yeah I think it looks great just lose the googles and instead just have lenses built in to the cowl.

        • S.W.

          Yep!!!!! Thank you!

      • SAMURAI36

        The difference being, those goggles were a part of NO’s cowl. This is just because Batman is clearly working on something, so he’s just protecting his eyes. It’s doubtful that the goggles will remain thru out the entire film.
        Not to mention, we were already told that he’d be wearing more than one suit in the film.

        • Carl

          Yeah but Nite Owl’s googles were completely removable from the cowl so no they weren’t a part of it.

          • SAMURAI36

            You’re missing why I’m saying, so perhaps I should say it a different way….
            NO’s goggles are a permanent part of his look. Batman’s won’t be.

          • Carl

            Sure I’m not debating that either. I’m just saying that I see the similarity and clearly others do too.

  • thalvar

    Cool Suit! However, he looks like Clooney!

  • Thomas Røed

    That looks like the kind of suit Batman would wear to fight Deathstroke. This is gonna be an awesome movie.

  • Origami Rose

    Looks like a watchmen character

  • Fenix

    Looks like Nite Owl II with the goggles.

    • Darthmanwe

      Glad that I wasn’t the only one whose subconscious was screaming “Nite Owl!!”

  • ClownPrinceOfTroll

    Lol nice oakleys lmao..

    Want to hear a joke? dceu

  • S.W.

    How could somebody who got Batman SO right get this so wrong? When are they just going to put white or reflective lenses in the cowl? Batman doesn’t wear friggin’ goggles (and pls save your comments about previous Batman dos and donts). Stop reinventing the wheel and put the lenses in the cowl where they belong.

    • SAMURAI36

      What part about Batman welding something do you guys mot seem to comprehend??

      • S.W.

        I’m not talking about him welding. I’m talking about a previous interview Snyder did where he said he wanted to give a nod to images of Batman in the comics where his eyes “appear” white or have been whited out for artistic purposes. My point is, in the comics, the cowl has lenses. Yes the Nolan TDK cowl was cumbersome and the eyes were oversized. But did either of you see Captain America: Civil War? The SAME company that created Black Panther’s mask (with lenses in the cowl/helmet) created the new Batsuit and cowl [Ironhead studio]. If you look at the concept art for BvS, Bats has lenses in the cowl. There are even lenses in the cowl on Alfred’s worktable when he’s repairing it in BvS. All I’m saying is it’s doable, and Snyder and his team are choosing not to do it, and to still go with the Batscara, and now these goggles. He’s even more intimidating/inhuman if you can’t see his eyes. They’ve done a great job so far, I just wish they’d go all the way. You can troll this comment all you want to, and say crude things, or you can respond with some decency. At the end of the day we’re all just film and comic book lovers who have different opinions. Nothing nasty needs to be said.

    • Mattman

      Because lenses on the cowl would look stupid and clunky (see The Dark Knight for reference). The best thing they could do is give him white contact lenses but then that would mask the eyes, which may from a directing and acting point of view, take away from one of the most expressionist features of a performance. Me? I’d be quite ok with it. They made it work well for Deadpool.

        • Mattman

          Welding? I think you may be replying to someone elses comment at the same time as answering mine. And of the trolling comment is aimed at me, don’t mistake my brevity for trolling. As for the lenses, I completely agree, I would like to see them but not as lenses over or in the cowl. I’d like white contact lenses (I’m pretty sure that’s what it was in the concept art for BvS). Contact lenses would also make it necessary for the Batscara to remain. As much as I enjoyed Black Panther, I can guarantee when it comes to his solo movie you’ll see his face out of the mask more then you’ll see it in the mask. It’s the same reason we have a view of Starks face inside the helmet, Spidys new eye movements on his mask, the other Spidy movies where his mask is off every 5mins. From a movie making point of view, it’s hard for an audience to connect with the actor if you can’t see facial features.

          • S.W.

            Sorry. Yes, I was replying to Samurai’s comment above yours. It looks like it was part of the same thread. and no, the trolling wasn’t aimed at you. Sorry, misplaced comment.

            I agree with all your points.

  • TomDJ

    Ugh those goggles…. Really? The billionaire can’t afford anything better?

    • SAMURAI36

      Why would je need something better, just to weld some stuff together??

      • Technofied

        Those idiots can’t spot the sparkles all over the place

        • Axxell

          I can bet you $10,000 he’s not welding in that scene.

      • TomDJ

        Is that all you would do in a tactical batsuit?

        • SAMURAI36

          Of course not, but we know from the set visit, that Batman will be building various tech & vehicles in his hangar in the JL film. This pic is clearly a glimpse of that.

          • TomDJ

            Well you don’t know it’s just for welding. Especially since he actually uses welding goggles in BvS while he’s dressed in civ clothes. Those goggles look specifically designed for his batsuit. It would be weird for him to make specifically designed goggles just for welding.

          • SAMURAI36

            Like it’s weird for him to design a plane based on a bat? Or Boomerangs based on bats? You can actually see the straps on the side of the cowl for the goggles. We also know that Batman has infrared, might, & other types of vision, built directly into the cowl. What’s the point of developing something that he would just take off?

          • TomDJ

            Everything you described was used to combat, ergo anything batman-related. Plus he can take off his belt, so removable items aren’t exactly a problem. If he has infrared eyewear built into his cowl, he likely could have UV built in too and therefore wouldnt need to wear separate welding goggles.

          • SAMURAI36

            Except the goggles would be more like safety goggles. An extra layer of protection.

          • TomDJ

            Like I said, he already had welding goggles in BvS. So, therefore, he designed new goggles to be specifically worn with this batsuit.

          • SAMURAI36

            I guess we’ll have to see when the movie comes out, then.

          • TomDJ

            Agreed, but you have to admit, if he does end up wearing them throughout the film (in those.. non-welding scenes) then it’s going to look ridiculous.

          • SAMURAI36

            Ridiculous? No. Derivative? Perhaps. But that’s only because of the Nite-Owl comparison. If it weren’t for that, nobody would complain.

            Besides, when you consider that NO is a Batman analogue to begin with, & that the films featuring both characters are created by the same person, then it all comes into perspective.

            All the more reason why I don’t think he’d be wearing them the whole time. This is just a self-homage, if anything. The resemblance is too obvious for it to be anything else.

          • TomDJ

            Homage or not. Batman wearing goggles looks as out of place as Nite Owl without goggles. I don’t believe they were created by the same person. Bill Finger also created Green Lantern, nonetheless, if Batman came on screen wearing a green mask simply covering his eyes, people would be pissed.

          • SAMURAI36

            I didn’t state that the characters were created by the same person, I said the films they appear(ed) in were. we’ve seen several references to Watchmen in BVS alone. I’m sure JL will also have its share of them, these goggles being one of them.

          • TomDJ

            To my knowledge, there was one reference in BvS and it was a pretty hidden easter egg. Nonetheless, easter eggs or not, homages or not, they are still silly on Batman. Let’s hope he just keeps them to a minimum.

      • Mattman

        I don’t think he’s welding. I’d put good money on that. Why would Batman get fully tooled up in tactical gear to weld? I’m betting the goggles are for some form of nightmode/detective mode a la Arkham Asylum.

    • S.W.

      LOL. EXACTLY. This, my friend, was a perfect comment. As they say in hip-hop, you can now drop the mic.

  • Rich Wilkinson

    Put the picture in the article

  • MaDNaD

    Got to love his vision, I liked the new batsuit and I love the new tech suit but I wouldn’t go as far as ‘saying this is going to be awesome’. We’ve already learned that visuals and flare are worth jack unless the story and characters are on point.

    I do hope DC find their feet and get this one right aswell as WW

  • MaDNaD
    • S.W.

      He still looks like Clooney. And it makes me feel like I’m looking at a campy batman 66 send-up, like he put on his shades to go to the beach. (Like Batman 66 putting swim trunks on over his costume). But then again, this version of Bats did bust out a scarf, trench coat and goggles for the Knightmare sequence. Maybe that’s how he rolls.

  • ClownPrinceOfTroll

    Directors Cut Comics

    Lol.

  • ClownPrinceOfTroll

    Every dc article is comedy hour.

    Justice League rotten ratting on its way folks. By 2018 dc will be 0/5 in their dceu ?

  • Mattman

    Looks cool. Don’t really care about the Night Owl comparison. Apart from the goggles, it has a very Injustice-feel to it.

  • batghost

    When is a Batman suit not tactical? Batman is supposed to be a ninja, not a juiced up soldier. Jeeze. I really want to like this stuff but they keep killing me. Oh well.

  • rogbngp

    It looks to me like he’s just wearing goggles because of the sparks that are flying around him in the Flying Fox (assuming that’s where he is). Best I can see, it’s the same suit shown in the group shot of the JL that Snyder released some time ago.
