Jaden Smith is suiting up again. He's worn an all-white Batman costume to San Diego Comic-Con, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's wedding and even prom and now he's back with a full-length music video titled "Batman":
The video depicts a young Bruce Wayne (Smith) living extravagantly until he's called upon to defend the city from Superman and ... another Batman?
It's a mashup of the strangest components of Batman's origins, including the brief-yet-canonical adaptation of Batman's all-white suit in the "White Lantern" arc of DC Comics. Perhaps this fascination with Batman is only fitting since Jaden's parents, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, have both played DC characters in Suicide Squad and Gotham?
Jaden gave an explanation for the suit during an interview with Vanity Fair:
"I wore the Batman suit to heighten my experience at the wedding and prom which was fun, but also at the wedding I felt as though I needed to protect everyone there and needed to have the proper gear to do so."
Who knows, maybe the young actor/musician will even play the Dark Knight for real someday.
