Man Of Steel: 11/12/13 Home Media release and Kevin Smith comments on Batsuit for 2015 Sequel

11/12/13, or November 12, 2013, is a day that only comes once in a lifetime, but it also happens to be the home video release date of a certain superhero flick that has the capacity to kickstart a potential DC Cinematic Universe... With a sequel to the film coming out in 2015 to boot.

Coming to Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital Media, Man Of Steel is Zack Snyder's epic reboot of the Superman film franchise, and stars British actor Henry Cavill in the titular role as Kal-El/ Clark Kent. Sent to Earth from the doomed alien planet of Krypton, a young man embarks on a journey to find out his origins and discover his destiny as a man capable of achieving great things. Several types of packages will be made available for the release, including a Blu-Ray Combo release and a special Collector's Edition that features a tin "S" shield pack with limited edition material in it.

And speaking about the sequel, which is still going under the working name "Batman Vs Superman", Man Of Steel Fan Event host and comic book guru Kevin Smith recently saw pictures/ concepts of the Batman costume that may be featured in Snyder's sequel, which has Smith's close friend Ben Affleck playing the role of Bruce Wayne/ Batman. In his recent Fatman Smodcast, the writer had this to say:

"I saw the Batman costume. More than that I saw a picture of him (Affleck) in the costume," Smith says. "Now, I don't want to give anything away 'cause that is up to them and stuff, but I am going to say this: I instantly bear hugged him (Snyder). You have not seen this costume in a movie on film before. And for a comic book fan, it was mind bending. I was like, 'Get out of here, only you have enough power to pull this off.' Because everyone always like does this Matrix/X-men black armor. … It was fantastic. 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 ****!' It's its own thing, man. It's like we haven't been down this path at all. I was so elated. ... Even the hardest core "**** all this" person will be like 'alright, I'm ready.'"

And while he was being vague on referencing what kind of costume the concepts were inspired from, word to the wise and beliefs on what Smith was referencing was in fact the infamous designs of one DC Comics artist and Co-Publisher Jim Lee, famous for his runs in Batman: Hush and the New 52 "Origin" storyline of Justice League. If that's true, then we may finally see a good interpretation of the comic book type Batsuit on film. For more information, visit the source post at Cinema Blend and ComicBook.com.
