The Mattel DC Multiverse Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice Batman has a pretty good sculpt, it just lacks in the paint department. I wanted to give him a full movie accurate, realistic repaint. So I gave all of the gray areas a dark wash, with some light highlinting to really bring out all the detail in the sculpt. I painted the scallops on his gloves gold to match the movie. I cut off the cape and heavily modified the cowl so I could glue it down to the body. Then, I attached a fabric cape for better posing and aesthetics. Of course the head was repainted to look more like Ben Affleck, including his 5 O’Clock shadow! I also sanded down the weird texture on the cowl to match the neck piece. Then, I modified a grapnel gun accessory from one of the basic Dawn of Justice Batman figures. I made it smaller and more compact so it didn’t look quite so ridiculous. I painted it to look like the one he uses in the movie, and fabricated a fully movie accurate batarang out of styrene for him to hold and throw at some criminals! Now Batman is ready to dispense all sorts of righteous Gotham justice!
