Even as attention focuses on developments surrounding the upcoming Batman solo film, Hot Toys has unveiled another vision of the Dark Knight: a 1/6th-scale figure based on the vigilante's appearance in "Suicide Squad."
Fans would normally have to wait for New York Toy Fair for this kind of reveal, but with the expo just a week away, Hot Toys is rolling out some announcements a little early.
The Hong Kong-based toymaker has already produced Batman figures for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," but this one will be able to recreate some of the iconic scenes and poses from "Suicide Squad," thanks to a wired posable cape.
Expected to ship in the second half of the year, this Batman boasts 30 points of articulation, and features a head sculpt with three interchangeable eye pieces and three lower faces, each capturing a different expression; eight interchangeable gloved hands; a highly detailed costume; a utility belt; one pair of black forearm gauntlets; black boots; a grapple gun with interchangeable tips; a grenade gun with two grenades; four Batarangs; an underwater breathing mask attachable to Batman's cowl; a Batman symbol branding iron; and a display stand with "Suicide Squad" film logo
Written and directed by David Ayer, "Suicide Squad" followed a team of DC Comics costumed criminals enlisted by the U.S. government to undertake dangerous black-ops missions. Ben Affleck reprised his role as the Dark Knight for three scenes, interacting with Will Smith's Deadshot, Jared Leto's The Joker, Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn and Viola Davis' Amanda Waller.
Affleck will return to the role Nov. 17 in director Zack Snyder's "Justice League," which also stars Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash and Ray Fischer as Cyborg. He's also set to headline "The Batman," now expected to be directed by Matt Reeves.
