ben affleck batman suit Matt Damon Speaks On Ben Afflecks Batman Suit & His Thoughts On The Batman Vs Superman Story

After comments from both Kevin Smith and Ben Affleck’s wife Jennifer Garner about the look of the new “Batsuit”, Matt Damon has now chimed in about Batman’s new digs in the upcoming ‘Man of Steel’ follow-up. Speaking with MTV for ‘The Monuments Men,’ Damon had this to say about the suit and the film’s storyline: “I’ve seen a picture, I have seen a picture. It’s excellent. And I’ve talked to him about the storyline, and it’s great. Look I’ve known him for thirty-something years, I’d be the first guy being like ‘Buddy, what are you doing?’ but I think the movie is going to be great.”

Last week it was announced that Jesse Eisenberg has been set to star as Lex Luthor and Jeremy Irons will play Alfred in the upcoming Zack Snyder ‘Man of Steel’ follow-up. Snyder’s tentatively titled ‘Batman vs. Superman’ film also stars Henry Cavill, reprising his role as Superman/Clark Kent, Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince. The film also reunites ‘Man of Steel’ stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.

The new film is currently being written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer. Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder are producing, with Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Wesley Coller, David S. Goyer and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.

The film is set to open worldwide on May 6th, 2016, and is based on Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Batman characters created by Bob Kane, and Wonder Woman created by William Moulton Marston, appearing in comic books published by DC Entertainment.
