San Diego Comic-Con 2014: DC Unveils Close Look At Batman's Cowl

Pays to be a Batman fan this weekend.



San Diego Comic-Con attendees and guests will see Ben Affleck's Batman cowl and cape, an exclusive, from 2016's Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. "Comic-Con: Batfleck Cowl Displayed by DC Entertainment" by The Hollywood Reporter's Graeme McMillan discusses the display.

Dan DiDio, Co-Publisher of DC Comics, posted an image on Twitter right before Preview Night on Wednesday, July 23. He teased the audience by captioning the photo "Batfleck costume is in the house!" without an actual location. Considering the size of the convention, that's one way to make Batman fans search every place.



McMillan helpfully adds the look is distinguishable from previous actors, which are also on display the DC space.

The costume collection is intended to celebrate Batman's 75th anniversary. Previous Dark Knight looks include Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer and George Clooney. And, of course, the latest former Batman costume worn by Christian Bale will be featured.

Jason Tabrys from Den of Geek points out the preview also coincided with Batman Day Wednesday. As a kick-off, that's a pretty awesome 'look at this!' tactic.

Apparently Gotham's leading billionaire superhero will be rocking a Frank Miller feel, too. (You may know the look from the very successful Bale years.)



Tabrys reports in "Batman's 'Dawn of Justice' Cowl on display at SDCC" all about the adversarial role of Affleck's Caped Crusader.

"This version of Batman will, indeed, rock a black cowl and not a very dark blue one. Along with the stubby ears and the more crude looking Bat-symbol on his chest, this further confirms the stylistic homage to the look of Batman in Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns."

The collection similar to what the company did for Superman's 75th last year-including Henry Cavill's Man of Steel costume. Anniversaries of major properties are definitely something DC does all out.



But in a strange turn of events, Batman v. Superman coverage may be limited

Unlike other movies, Zack Snyder’s Dawn of Justice isn't listed on an official panel, or connected to one. And that's strange since DC Entertainment uses SDCC to drop mega news bombshells left and right. The company has two major panels this weekend, so it’s easy to assume news would leak.

But may be Affleck or Cavill will pull a Tom Hiddleston and treat the audience to an in-character peek. Except, you know, a good guy and without a frog in his throat.



In general, if you want to know the latest, track con news-especially for DC Comics and Entertainment.

Marvel and DC play out their news in a game of tit-for-tat, which makes the audiences more excited for information and keeps the fan rivalry in high gear.



One thing is for sure, though. Batman news will be flying this weekend. But who knows which media source will get the big news. Fox's prequel series to Batman, Gotham, will probably earn some of the pie, though. Along with some exclusive con swag.

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice premieres May 6, 2016.
