Kevin Smith Is a Little Too Excited About Batman's New Suit


Jay and Silent Bob Reboot director and Batman fanatic Kevin Smith shared his somewhat awkward reaction to the newly released footage of Robert Pattinson in the Batsuit from Matt Reeves' The Batman

"My Bat Pole is fully erect..." Smith commented on the footage, using his signature vulgar humor to share his excitement.

The footage, which was shared by director Matt Reeves, gave fans a good look at the trademark Batman chest insignia as well as the Bat-cowl. The Batman began production in January.

A long-time fan of the character, Smith started a podcast in 2012 entitled Fatman on Batman in which he discusses the Caped Crusader with friends and guests. Guests on the series have included David Dastmalchian, Stan Lee, Nathan Fillion, Paul Dini and more. Fatman on Batman is still running but is less focused on solely Batman-related topics.
