At the premiere of The Monuments Men, actor Matt Damon revealed that he’s seen Batman’s new suit and talks about Ben Affleck playing the role of the caped crusader.

MTV caught up with Matt Damon at The Monuments Men premiere and he gushed over the new Bat suit, as well as his friend of 30 years playing the role of Bruce Wayne. Watch the interview with MTV below:

Damon says, “I have seen a picture. It’s excellent. And I’ve talked to him about the storyline, and it’s great.” He then went on to explain that he’d tell Affleck if he thought taking the role was a terrible idea, seeing as they’ve been friends since childhood.

It’s nice to see Damon backing up his childhood friend and writing partner – essentially endorsing him as a great choice for Batman in Warner Bros. untitled Man of Steel sequel.

But Matt isn’t the first to see the new Bat suit, as Ben Affleck’s wife also revealed that she’d seen the suit during the red carpet at the Golden Globes.

Affleck’s friend and director Kevin Smith said on twitter that he’d seen the suit and that fans will be extremely excited about the new look.

Smith said, “You have not seen this costume in a movie on film before. For a comic book fan it was mind bending. I was like get the f**k out of here. Only you have enough power to pull this off, man, because everyone always does this f**king matrixy kind of slash X-men black armor thing. There wasn’t a single nipple on this suit.”

We’ve heard reports that the suit is a combination of grey and black in the sequel, looking similar to the one designed by artist Jim Lee seen above.

While the Batman Vs Superman film’s release date has been delayed until May 6, 2016, we’re sure that with a couple pictures floating around we’re bound to get a glimpse of the newly designed suit soon.

Matt Damon’s film The Monuments Men hits theaters this Friday.

    Okay, xmen had to tone down their costumes from the comics. They’d look like crap in a movie. And how awesome can a batman costume really be? They’re all just various shades of black and grey…it’s not going to be astonishingly different than anything anyone’s seen before.

      Apparently you haven’t seen Avengers, or any of the other Marvel Studios films in that universe(he said sarcastically to the guy named Ultron,) or Spider-Man, .You don’t need to “tone down” a costume, just tweaking it slightly to fit more in to reality, giving it more depth and texture, can make a costume work.

      In the past, all the Bat-costumes (from Keaton to present) have either been molded rubber looking or armor like and (with the exception of the *barf* silver ice armor in B&R) have been essentially all black plus gold accents. Its very possible they’ll go with a New 52 style sewn Kevlar looking outfit with even the possibility of a (dark?)blue cape and cowl.

      For someone with a comic character as your name and avatar, I would have thought you’d have a bit more open-mindedness regarding this topic.

      • Ultron

        I don’t have much open-mindedness toward batman and whatever his costume may or may not look like because I have no hopes this movie will be any good at all. Plus I don’t even like batman :P

          So then, you’re here because….

          • Ultron

            Ultron likes to cause trouble, no? I got nothin better to do.

          That’s a little narrow minded of you. Besides don’t judge before you’ve even seen a trailer..for all you know 1.5 years from now you’ll be eating your words…anyway to each their own!

      • 7Starrchasers

        Was just going to say this!

    Can we see the suit already?! There’s so much hype to this suit from all Affleck’s friends that it probably won’t reach my expectations. SHOW. THE. SUIT.
