Zack Snyder, director of "Man of Steel 2: Batman Vs Superman" caused media frenzy last week, when he released a picture of Ben Affleck's Batsuit online. While the monochrome picture showed the Batsuit as completely black, speculations swirling around suggested that the actual Batsuit is of much lighter shade.

And now, director Kevin Smith, in the latest episode of his Hollywood Babble-On podcast, revealed that the real suit is very similar to the one featured in Frank Miller's "Hunt the Dark Night."

That means the bat symbol, the cape and the cowl will be in black, where as the rest of the armor will be in grey.

"That's not a representation of what the suit looks like," Smith said of the photo released online by Snyder. "What the suit looks like... and I was always kind of keeping it quiet until they revealed it, but they've revealed it.

"And you can kind of see, and anybody that…you've seen some people take the picture and color it online. If you want to see what this fucking suit looks like, you just go to Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns, go to the third book, "Hunt the Dark Knight"…it's the exact fucking outfit he's wearing. That's why I hugged that guy all those months ago."

Apparently Smith saw the photograph of the real Batsuit back in November, and it had every piece of detail as the photo was in color. The director also hinted the possibility of more than one Batsuit and Batmobile featuring in the film.

"I will put this to you. What if it's one of a few Batmobiles? What if that's one of a few outfits in the movie? I suspect that's the case."

However, Snyder has not released any concrete information to indicate that Smith's conjecture on multiple Batsuits and Batmobiles might be accurate.

Here is the monochrome Batman picture that Snyder released last week.
