DATELINE: Red Bank, New Jersey – On his podcast FATMAN ON THE BATMAN, Film Director/Writer/Actor Kevin Smith says the Batman outfit in the upcoming SUPERMAN VS. BATMAN film, is going to blow people away. Smith who is a good friend of Ben Affleck says the Batsuit is amazing: “I’m already a flag waver for this movie but the costume, it blew my mind. I think everyone is just gonna be like ‘Holy S***!’ According to sources, Smith’s favorite aspect of the suit is the titanium-reinforced middle fingers Affleck will be able to use to address his critics
