Could Batman Vs Superman feature two different Batsuits?

Hot on the heels of Jennifer Garner's revelation that she's already seen the "unbelievably cool" Batman Vs Superman Batsuit comes news that Ben Affleck could actually wear two different Batman costumes in the film.

That's according to scoop site Latino Review , which reports that a grey-and-blue suit has already been designed, with a second costume in the making.

Reports scooper Marvelous Dave: "The [ most ] interesting thing I've heard is that Batman will actually wear 2 Bat-suits in the film... Grey-and-Blue has already been designed and Affleck has worn it."

That'll be the one Garner's seen, then. So what about the other one? Could it be a prototype or DIY effort a la Spider-Man ?

According to LR , quite the opposite, with the second suit coming fully-armoured with silver/white plates – all the better to go up against a near-invincible alien like Superman.

The armoured suit is said to have been inspired by the Bat's costume in graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns , while the grey and blue number is reportedly based on Jim Lee's Batman: Hush design.

All of which sounds very exciting, and really does seem to be taking the Bat in a new direction after Christopher Nolan's defining caped crusader trilogy.

Man Of Steel 2: Batman Vs Superman opens in cinemas on 6 May 2016.
