Following the reveal of the Batsuit a few days ago via Twitter by Zack Snyder, KEVIN SMITH (who is good friend of Ben Affleck) also confirmed the color of the suit:
“So what the suit looks like, and I was always kind of keeping it quiet until they revealed it, but they’ve revealed it. And you can kind of see, and anybody that… you’ve seen some people take the picture and color it online. If you want to see what this suit looks like, you just go to Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, go to the third book, Hunt the Dark Knight (image below)… it’s the exact outfit he’s wearing. That’s why I hugged that guy all those months ago.”
