New Images Of Batman Cowl Released
While Justice League is still a little over 10 months away, that has not stopped us from getting snippets of news and images from the film. Today we were graced with some 3D renderings of the new Batman cowl that will make its debut in the film. A tweet from @BatmanNewsCom showcases what the cowl will look like. The mask was created especially for Ben Affleck (Batman) and has a much different feel and texture than the one he wore in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

The costumer designer for the film, Michael Wilkinson, had this to say in regards to the new cowl
“We’ve come up with a new cowl, It’s very close to the last one, but again new technologies, new materials (now made from polyurethane instead of foam latex), tweaking has allowed us to take that one even further. One big new detail is that Zack wanted the idea that there’s a little more sense of armor and deflection on his gauntlets when he is shot at. So I designed this thing based on a Samurai. We borrowed it from Bruce Wayne’s history too, so it has a connection with Asian Martial arts in Japan. So I thought that would be perfect. We modernized it to the Wayne Tech aesthetic here. We changed the straight shank of the blade from last time. It’s something a little more aggressive.”
