People caught up with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice costume designer Michael Wilkinson earlier this week at the 18th Costume Designers Guild Awards. Wilkinson described Ben Affleck’s Batman as sexy, smart, and seductive, and spoke about what it was like for Affleck to see himself in the Batsuit for the very first time.
“He’s sexy, he’s smart and seductive,” he Wilkinson. “He’s strong and a little intimidating and scary, he’s a real brawler, there’s nothing precious about his Bruce Wayne. He rolls up his sleeves and gets it done.”
“I remember he just kind of looked at himself in the mirror, pretty happy with how he looked,” he said. “The costume is very intimidating and huge and I think he intimidated himself when he looked in the mirror, so that’s a good sign.”
