It’s always a treat when you get an up close and personal look at the superhero costumes we see in the movies, and Warner Bros are giving fans a chance to do just that with DC Universe: The Exhibit. got a sneak preview at the Batman v Superman and outfits and props attendees will be able to peruse, and while there is plenty of fun stuff to be found there’s one intricate detail in particular that sticks out; Batman’s gun.
There is A LOT going on in Batman’s Knightmare sequence, which is probably why I completely missed the Joker card on Batman’s gun. It’s a lovely little detail though that absolutely fits with Ben Affleck’s portrayal of this darker Bruce Wayne. Earlier in the film Bruce walks by a costume of a former Robin – now confirmed to be Jason Todd – with “Hahahaha joke’s on you Batman” painted over it. His partner’s death is clearly something that he carries with him all the time, and as it turns out that’s even more literal than we previously thought.
