The good people at CBM.com have some new rumors kicking around about Ben Affleck’s car and costume in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel. First off, it seems that Cadillac is indeed working on the new version of the Batmobile. The new vehicle should be more of a car design and a far cry from the Tumbler seen in the Nolan trilogy.
Now onto the costume which is the exciting part. Their sources are saying that Affleck’s costume will be based on the Lee Bermejo graphic novel, [amazon_link id=”1401232132″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Batman: Noel[/amazon_link], which was released in 2011 and has become regular Christmas reading for me since. It is a retelling of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol with Batman, The Joker and an actual glimmer of hope at the end. Also, off subject, if you have not read Bermejo’s graphic novel, [amazon_link id=”1401215815″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Joker[/amazon_link], then you are missing out badly.
As far as the costume, I love the idea. It is a realistic looking fabric with body armor look and the cowl should fit Affleck’s version of Batman great.
