There are those still doubting Ben Affleck's ability to pull off the role as the caped crusader in "Batman vs. Superman," but fans might rest easier knowing that director/comic book fan/Affleck-champion Kevin Smith has seen the new Batsuit, and he approves.

During his weekly Hollywood Babble-On podcast on Nov. 9, Smith revealed he actually saw a photo of his pal in the costume, and he was so happy with the results he "instantly bear hugged [the film's director Zack Snyder]."

Smith continued:

"You have not seen this costume on film before," he explained to fans of the superhero franchise. "For a comic book fan, it was mind-bending... Because every other movie does this Matrix-y black armor thing…There wasn’t a single nipple on this suit."

"I think everyone is just gonna be like ‘Holy Sh-t!’ It’s its own thing. We haven’t been down this path before. Even the hardest core [most skeptical] person will be like ‘Alright, I’m ready,'" he said.

And though it was been bleeped out in the actual podcast, likely in an effort to avoid spoiling too much about the new Batsuit, a fan who attended the live podcast says that Smith went on to say that the suit seems "very Jim Lee influenced."

Lee has drawn a few different looks for the superhero over the years, but ComicBook.com is betting that Affleck's Batman will be wearing a grey suit instead of a black suit this time around.
