Professional concept artist Jerad S. Marantz (X-Men: Apocalypse, Captain America: Civil War) has updated his official website with a trio of designs for Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice that solely focus on The Dark Knight's Mech Batsuit.
In order to go toe-to-toe with the Man of Steel (Henry Cavill), Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) wore an armored Batsuit — inspired by the power-suit Batman wore in Frank Miller's 1986 four-issue comic book mini-series, The Dark Knight Returns — and used grenades that discharged smoke laced with kryptonite. The suit featured luminescent lenses to conceal/protect his eyes and added more power to his punches, allowing him to hit Superman with 1,420 pounds of force.
Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
Directed by Zack Snyder, the film features Oscar-winner Ben Affleck (Argo) as Batman/Bruce Wayne and Henry Cavill (The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) as Superman/Clark Kent and also stars Oscar nominees Amy Adams (American Hustle, Man of Steel) as Lois Lane, Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) as Lex Luthor, Diane Lane (Unfaithful, Man of Steel) as Martha Kent, and Laurence Fishburne (What’s Love Got to Do with It, Man of Steel) as Perry White; Oscar winners Jeremy Irons (Reversal of Fortune) as Alfred, and Holly Hunter (The Piano) as Senator Finch; and Gal Gadot (the Fast and Furious films) as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is available on Digital HD and Blu-ray.
